Tua Tagovailoa Conducts Private Pro Day

How We Got Here Tua Tagovailoa is one of the most intriguing prospects in this draft class. For most of the college football season, Tagovailoa was seen as the most talented prospect on the board.

Next quarterback up to analyze is none other than Tua Tagovailoa, Alabama's golden child.

The situation just isn't that simple. There are other suitors, and the Dolphins should be pretty worried that if they don't take...
