What would the Minnesota Vikings have to do in order to land the former Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa in the 2020 NFL Draft?
All eyes will be on former Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa during this year’s NFL Draft process and the Minnesota Vikings might be in the market for a new face of their franchise.
Although it appears unlikely, if the Vikings become enamored with the standout then they could move heaven and earth to bring him to the organization.
Tagovailoa enjoyed a prolific college career at Alabama. After beating out Jalen Hurts to be the school’s starting quarterback, he threw for 3,966 yards, 43 touchdowns, and six interceptions during the 2018 season.
He followed this up with 2,840 yards, 33 touchdowns and just three interceptions in 2019 before his campaign ended abruptly due to a serious hip injury. Since then, much has been made about his ability to come back from such a horrific injury and have a lasting career in the NFL.
The early signs regarding Tagovailoa’s progress are very encouraging. Multiple sources claim doctors are confident he can make a full recovery that could see him enter the No. 1 pick discussion, once again, alongside LSU standout quarterback Joe Burrow.
Before his injury, Tagovailoa was being talked about as the next great quarterback and a transcendent talent. This is something the Vikings have not had for a considerable period of time.
It may seem like a pipe dream, but let’s try and figure out a few ways Minnesota might be able to move up and take Tagovailoa in this year’s draft.
