Ourlads' Profile:

2020 Guide: What Ourlads' Scouting Services said about TUA TAGOVAILOA: Alabama, 6000 217 4.70. Junior entry, two-year starter, Ewa Beach, HI. Prior to his hip injury, the left hander had uncanny accuracy on slants and deep post patterns. He could squeeze the ball into a tight window and hit his receiver in stride with little adjustment. Accuracy was so pinpoint that wide receivers didn’t need much separation from defenders. A smart and well-schooled player who handled pre snap motions and adjustments with ease. Could see and react to the blitz. He made good decisions and was decisive in his throws. Isn’t deterred by mistakes. He bounces back from an incomplete pass, interception, or fumble immediately. When healthy he was prepared to step up in the pocket or elude the rush. A competitive leader who makes those around him better. A bright light player with big game experience. Doesn’t possess a howitzer, but has a big time accurate arm that can make all the throws. His 76 touchdown passes with just nine interceptions in his last two seasons is a testament to his big play ability and accuracy. His second half against LSU this fall (responded from two first half turnovers and a 20-point deficit by leading his team to 28 points and a narrow five-point defeat) is a prime example of a player who responds to adversity. Left-handed quarterbacks don’t have much of a history of success in the NFL with just two in the Hall of Fame in Steve Young and Ken Stabler. Had arguably one of the most talented receiver corps in the history of college football and may not have similar level of weapons around him in the pros. Regardless, there is not a single other quarterback in this year’s draft with his consistent accuracy on NFL level throws. Has had three significant surgeries in the last two seasons of his college career. The hip surgery is a tremendous obstacle. Fair to question the structural integrity of the player’s core now and in the future. Fearless playing style can get him into trouble, especially with immediate throws to his first read or option. All reports indicate that his hip is healing well and on schedule. He may be on the bench as a rookie, but that is not all bad in the right learning situation. 2019 stats: 180/252, 2840 yds, 71.4%, 33 TD, 3 INT, 17 yds rushing, 2 TD, 206.93 QB rating. Medical exclusion at Combine - hip. First round. (A-30 1/2, H-9 7/8, SS-DNP, VJ-DNP).
