g-dawg Posted November 19, 2019 Share Posted November 19, 2019 YES, I am making this Falcons related. Falcons don’t need a QB anytime soon but no one is drafting this college phenom to play anytime soon. How far will he fall in the draft? I don’t see 1st round at all. Will Tua be selected in 2nd round? I don’t necessarily think he will be selected there either - he’s not likely to play at all in 2020. NFL teams desperate for a starting QB immediately aren’t likely to take him. At some point the risk/reward see-saw balances out. If Falcons drafted Tua they would have him under contract for 4 years and maybe he could backup Matty Ice for 3 of those years. Supreme talent (before this injury). At some point the juice might be worth the squeeze. Personally I wouldn’t consider Tua for Falcons in the first two rounds(first 3 picks) and wouldn’t want to take him with that early to mid 3rd rounder - but I might take him there. I expect this thread to go off like a turd in the punch bowl but someone at some point was gonna start this thread so decided to pre-empt. Anotjetr argument against Tua would be even if he made full recovery and awesome again - you would always be worried about ankle injuries or loss of mobility. On the plus side, you get the Matty Ice replacement on the cheap at a time 4 years from now when Matt might be in decline. What say you?
