Thursday was the scheduled date for Tua Tagovailoa's pro day and he followed through with it. At least a modified version of it.
Tua's virtual pro day had less than 10 people in attendance due to COVID-19. He threw passes to former teammate Jerry Jeudy as well as Vanderbilt prospect Kalija Lipscomb. His pro day consisted of 55 scripted throws and another 20 "dynamic" passes.
He held is pro day reportedly in Nashville, Tennessee where he had been training with former NFL quarterback and Super Bowl champion Trent Dilfer.
Chris Mortensen posted a series of video tweets of Tua's pro day.
While Tua was having his pro day, he also violated Tennessee's "stay at home" order.
From Mike Florio at PFT:
Tua Tagovailoa's virtual Pro Day workouts has generated plenty of buzz. But most in the media have overlooked one undeniable fact regarding the session, which occurred at the D1 Training facility, reportedly in Nashville: It violated the current Tennessee “stay at home” order.
Executive Order 22, as amended by Executive Order 23, make the situation as clear as it can be. D1 Training should have been closed. Neither Tua nor anyone else should have been there. It’s that simple, and it’s that clear. (It’s also clear from the video that the six-feet distancing requirement wasn’t being followed.)
Tua is expected to be a top five pick in the upcoming draft and is trying to show teams that he is healthy and ready to go after suffering a dislocated hip.
The NFL Draft is less than two weeks away.
