There was a time when Tua Tagovailoa looked like a shoo-in to be the No. 1 pick at the 2020 NFL Draft, which could still be the case after he posted a video to illustrate his fitness post-hip injury.

The Alabama junior dislocated his hip in November against Mississippi State, leading to fears over what the setback could mean for Tagovailoa’s Draft prospects.

Tagovailoa took to Twitter on Monday and posted a video showing his followers the kind of mobility he’s got back since the injury, and many were impressed with what they saw.

The 22-year-old threw for 33 touchdowns from 252 attempted passes in nine games this past season before his campaign was cut short, boasting the best pass percentage (71.4%) of his three college years before he was sidelined.

It’s widely expected Louisiana State University standout Joe Burrow will be drafted in the No. 1 slot, at least according to the bookmakers.

The Resorts Casino Sportsbook is offering slim odds of -5000 (1.02) on the Heisman Trophy-winner to go top of the board, while Tagovailoa is third-favorite at +2000 (21.00).

Those odds could still represent good value should a team decide Tagovailoa is the fit they want and his injury isn’t enough to put them off despite not being able to work out at this year’s NFL Scouting Combine.
