Alabama NFL Draft Prospects

Tua Tagovailoa has fulfilled all medical requirements toward his NFL Draft process

Brett Davis - USA TODAY Sports

After being a national champion and winning over a fanbase in a first-class way, supporters of Alabama football cannot wait to see what Tua Tagovailoa becomes in the pros. 

All the news he received on his rehab from a dislocated right hip had been positive, and the final piece of information came on Thursday via Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. According to him, Tagovailoa received his own Combine re-check and the reviews were ‘overwhelmingly positive.’ 

Rapoport said the former Alabama quarterback has ‘fulfilled his medical requirements.’  

This was the native Hawaiian’s goal from the moment the process started. 

Despite it being five months since the injury, Tagovailoa’s faith and work ethic has him as more of a reward than a risk at this point.

He projects as a top-five pick and the second quarterback taken next month. The 2018 Heisman finalist and All-American has done everything possible to position himself in the right situation. Hopefully, the work delivers him to a prosperous career.
