Tua Tagovailoa - Draft Stock - at what point?


Recommended Posts

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?

At this point I hope Tua joins NASA and flies to the moon. I’m tired of Tua threads. 

No one is bigger UGA fan than me I have watched every one of Jake’s games - good college QB and kid with great character.  I just don’t see Jake as NFL QB.  Don’t think he is talented enough.  At leas

I love that idea. Then you can have 2 QBs and 4 kickers depending on how your team grades players. Championship!  

Stop mockin and always go BPA when we're on the clock. No matter what round, need or position. Even if we're stacked at that position. Draft like that every year and get deep. Stop trying to fill Dimi holes with rookie saviours. With that said, I don't think dude will drop to our third.

Wow.  You do realize you contradicted your own comments above in the same paragraph.  Tua isn’t a rookie savior - he likely will have to medically redshirt his rookie year.

Yeah, I would absolutely make that pick if Tua fell to Rd 4.

My guess would be if he fell to Day 3, there would be a lot of trade up action to get to the first pick of Round 4.

My guess is he goes somewhere in Round 3 to some team - someone will take the chance at that point.

Wow. You do realize your third round pipe dream is gonna look asinine when buddy goes in the first or second right?

Yeah I think he goes 65-72.

What a talent, but made of glass besides unfortunate and unlikely injury for this sport. He  has toughed out several injury to play at a high level but hip surgery? Did it pop out? Head of femur fracture? Both? Implants/ hardware? Yeesh, NFL MDs will steer clear with recommendation of thumbs down.

Good question, when do you gamble on lottery with so few choices? 4-5th? NE with one of their numerous early rounders? Miami could for sure..

I think he was agreeing with you without even realizing it....:)

If drafting a QB, I would prefer Fromm in Rd 3 over injury-prone Tua in Rd 2. I liked Jake better even before Tua broke down this season.

I agree. I like.Fromm better as well. Tua is just too injury prone. Hes not going to hold up through a 16 game season.

I personally don’t believe he’s going to be a cornerstone franchise QB for a team long term.

Having said that, teams get desperate for QBs when they need one, and he’s one of the shiniest hood ornaments out there, surgery or no. He won’t last past the 10th pick, IMO.
