Earlier today, there were reports floating around stating that two teams failed draft prospect Tua Tagovailoa’s physical at the NFL Scouting Combine earlier this year. Tua has suffered multiple injuries in his college career which has left his durability and on field availability in question. It remains to be seen if he actually failed these physicals or if they are smokescreens that were put out by teams hopeful to steal him in the draft.
According to Ian Rapoport, Tua held a one hour workout with 55 scripted throws that was video taped to be distributed to all 32 teams to dispel the rumors of poor health.
Unfortunately for Tagovailoa, this may be his best shot to show he is healthy as he cannot meet with team doctors due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
