Bio: DOB: 3/2/1998, Birthplace: Ewa Beach HW, Height: 6’0, Weight: 217, Hands: 10, Arms: 30.5
Tua has good instincts, is accurate, and has a good pocket presence which allows him to thrive in the pocket (and hopefully in the NFL but we have our doubts). He is also athletic and mobile which allows him to avoid sacks BUT also increases the risk of injury.
Some of the negatives include in regards to Tua Tagoviloa scouting include… less than ideal height, not an “elite arm”, injury concerns, and drafted by the Miami Dolphins… the worse possibly being the latter.

His name and team name are centered at the bottom while the famed “Rated Rookie” graphic is depicted in the top left-hand corner.
2020 Tua Tagovailoa Panini Chronicles Donruss Rated Rookie #3 (buy on eBay)
Another “Rated Rookie” Tua rookie card will cost at minimum one benjamin but might be worth it if you think Tagovaola will have a better than an expected year in Miami.
The photo shows Tua running for a first down after a play breakdown… hopefully he won’t have to do that much in the NFL or his career may be cut short (see Cam Newton).

Too many red flags abound when looking at Tua Tagovailoa rookie cards as a long term investment as we think injuries and being drafted by the Miami Dolphins will be too much for the kid to overcome… we foresee a career backup in the NFL at best.
