  • Can be tricked by safeties into throwing an interception
  • Struggles with timing on intermediate and deep passes at times
  • Can get scattered and rushed when unwarranted

Overall Assessment

PRE-DRAFT: Tua is a poised, accurate quarterback that has been successful since he was a true freshman.  He is a good scrambler that can move around the pocket as well as anyone in the class. His smaller stature may be an issue to some NFL teams, but his injuries are the bigger concern. If teams are comfortable with his health, he will be drafted in the top 5 of the NFL draft. If that is the case, expect him to be drafted in the 2nd round of 1QB leagues and in the top 4 of Superflex leagues.  Even if he sits out for a season, I will be very happy to have him on my roster.

POST-DRAFT: Tagovailoa was drafted as the fifth pick of the first round by Miami.  This is a good situation for Tua and a great opportunity to start early if he clears medicals.  Having Ryan Fitzpatrick as his mentor is a positive situation for him to learn from an intelligent veteran. In superflex, Tua is being selected by the fourth pick in most drafts.  In 1QB, you can typically grab him in the late-second or early-third round.
