It’s official: Tua Tagovailoa will enter the 2020 NFL Draft.

The 21-year-old Alabama quarterback made the announcement on Jan. 6 that he will forego his senior season with the Crimson Tide and pursue a career in the NFL.

Tagovailoa will certainly be an interesting player to follow in the coming months. The southpaw was projected to be the No. 1 overall pick until he dislocated and fractured his right hip on Nov. 16 against Mississippi State.

The injury, combined with the historic season LSU QB Joe Burrow compiled, dropped Tagovailoa out of that projected top spot, but not necessarily out of the first round.

In fact, many mock drafts and analysts are still projecting Tagovailoa to be a mid-to-early first-round pick.

Of course, there are still going to be questions about where he is in his recovery, which could cause him to slide even further, or move up some more if things are going well.

With the first 24 picks of the 2020 NFL Draft set, and plenty of them being quarterback-needy teams, we explored which teams could potentially draft Tagovailoa.
