Tua Tagovailoa remains betting favorite to be drafted No. 1 overallBy Amber Lee
Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa remains a slim betting favorite to be selected No. 1 overall in the 2020 NFL Draft.
That is despite the rapid ascent of LSU quarterback and Heisman candidate Joe Burrow, who has stunned on the field this season after a relatively unimpressive outing in 2018.
Burrow’s breakout performance coupled with Tagovailoa’s latest injury issue has many rethinking draft projections.
That said, Tagovailoa is still the narrow favorite to be the No. 1 pick next April (via Bet Online).
- Tua Tagovailoa: 2/3
- Joe Burrow: 2/1
- Jake Fromm: 6/1
- Justin Herbert: 6/1
- Chase Young: 14/1
The only non-quarterback on this list is Young, who continues to dominate as an edge rusher for Ohio State. Young has tallied 10.5 tackles for loss and 9.5 sacks in just seven games this season.
The NFL’s two remaining winless teams, the Miami Dolphins and Cincinnati Bengals, need franchise quarterbacks.
Miami has clearly been tanking this season and was mentioned as a potential landing spot for Tua as early as last year.
As of now, it seems to be between Tua and Burrow for the top pick.
Jake Fromm’s struggles in an upset loss to South Carolina earlier this month raised questions about his pro prospects.
