Tua Tagovailoa's seven best fits in 2020 NFL Draft, from favorite Dolphins to long-shot Patriots

  Tua Tagovailoa's seven best fits in 2020 NFL Draft, from favorite Dolphins to long-shot Patriots Tua Tagovailoa's ideal NFL situation will allow him to sit and ease into a starting job as he recovers from a hip injury. Here are the seven best fits for the Alabama quarterback heading into the 2020 NFL Draft.In an interview with Sports Illustrated, Saban compared Tagovailoa with two of the best quarterbacks in the NFL.

The new coach says Washington will meet with the draft 's top quarterback prospects even though the team used a first-round pick on quarterback Dwayne Redskins Coach Ron Rivera said Wednesday that the team is talking to the top two quarterbacks in the draft , Joe Burrow and Tua Tagovailoa .

Everyone overreacts to player meetings with teams at the NFL scouting combine and a team’s list of official pre-draft visits. Just because a team wants to talk to a player doesn’t mean they’ll draft him. Some teams prefer to avoid talking to prospects they want to draft, to keep everything secret.

Still, the Washington Redskins meeting with two of the draft’s top quarterbacks is curious.

The Redskins drafted Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins in the first round last year. But JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reported the team is meeting with LSU’s Joe Burrow and Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa at the combine this week.

Former Bengals receiver Chad Johnson tweeted on Tuesday that he is planning to have dinner with the reigning Heisman Trophy winner.“Having dinner with Burrow prior to the draft to let him know he’s in great hands because that f—ing city rocks and everybody will love you,” he said.Burrow is the presumptive No.

Tuanigamanuolepola " Tua " Tagovailoa (/ˌtʌŋɡoʊvaɪˈloʊə/ TUNG-goh-vai-LOA; born March 2, 1998 in ʻEwa Beach, Hawaii) is a Samoan-American football quarterback who last played college football for

QB Tua Tagovailoa and LSU QB Joe Burrow , but since the Redskins took Dwayne Haskins with the 15th overall pick in the 2019 Draft , it's a near Last year , the Arizona Cardinals drafted Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray first overall despite taking UCLA QB Josh Rosen with the 10th overall pick in 2018.

That’s certainly notable.

Redskins meeting with top quarterbacks in draft

New Washington coach Ron Rivera didn’t deny that the team is looking at quarterbacks.

However Rivera or anyone else wants to spin it, it’s not the best news for Haskins. It’s not like the Arizona Cardinals are openly looking at quarterback prospects a year after drafting Kyler Murray. Maybe this is Washington’s way of building leverage in a possible trade for the No. 2 overall pick. Maybe not.

Haskins didn’t start right away last season for the Redskins, who didn’t think he was ready. When he started, the results were mixed. This is a new regime for Washington that has no ties to Haskins. Everyone has assumed the Redskins would draft Ohio State defensive end Chase Young with the second pick, but there has to be some reason the team met with Burrow and Tagovailoa.

From Tua's hip to what Joe Burrow wants, top five things to watch at the NFL scouting combine

  From Tua's hip to what Joe Burrow wants, top five things to watch at the NFL scouting combine The NFL offseason doesn’t really start until most of the league arrives in Indianapolis. The foundation for the 2020 NFL season starts to get set this week, and there will be some enticing storylines to watch. Here are the top five things to watch, starting with a topic nobody wants to deal with ... Labor negotiations this weekYes, the collective-bargaining agreement will be a topic. It’s impossible to get away from, because teams can’t be sure how a new CBA would affect the 2020 league year. It could even affect the start of the league year.

Washington drafted Dwayne Haskins 15th overall last season but the offense isn't equipped to help Now, you can argue that Arizona shouldn't have drafted Josh Rosen in 2018 but they were able to Burrow will have long been drafted , and the best chance to land a healthy Tagovailoa might be to

Joe Burrow , QB , LSU. Burrow has enjoyed a meteoric rise as the new Heisman Trophy favorite and appealing top QB Assuming the Redskins want to stick with and develop first-round QB Dwayne Haskins with a new coach and will part ways with Trent Williams, they need a new rock of a left tackle.

Redskins have the second pick

It doesn’t hurt Washington to talk to Burrow and Tagovailoa. If it believes one of those quarterbacks is a generational talent, it can move on from Haskins. The Cardinals did it with Josh Rosen in 2019, a year after drafting him 10th overall.

Or Washington will consider offers for the second pick and being open about meeting with prospects drives up the price. Assuming Burrow goes first, a team that is hot for Tagovailoa might give up a ton to get all the way up to No. 2 for that pick. The Miami Dolphins have been linked to Tagovailoa for a long time, and they have a lot of extra picks. Perhaps a huge trade offer would persuade the Redskins to pass on Young.

Or perhaps Rivera isn’t sold on Haskins and will explore options for a replacement. Again, Rivera didn’t draft Haskins. Washington doesn’t want to make drafting second overall a habit, and perhaps the Redskins see this as a rare opportunity to hit the reset button with a top quarterback prospect like Tagovailoa.

  No, Joe Burrow's hand size won't keep him away from Bengals in 2020 NFL Draft The digits on the projected No. 1 overall pick's hand size were diminutive, but that shouldn't steer Cincinnati away from handing in the card with his name on it.During quarterback measurements at this year's NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis on Monday, Burrow had mostly protoypical size as the best prospect at the position, save for hands that measured at only 9 inches, per multiple reports.

QB status: Although Lamar Jackson is not as easy to pencil in as a surefire franchise quarterback as Mahomes, the Ravens have beaten a slew of playoff teams with the league’s most electric player.

It’s pre-draft season, so the truth is rarely clear. All we know is that Washington, one year after drafting a quarterback in the first round, is meeting with some of the best quarterback prospects in this draft. Draw your own conclusions.
