Clemson football coach Dabo Swinney is a big fan of quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.
There are lingering health questions about Tua, and nobody really seems to know where he’ll go in the draft. If Swinney was making the call, he wouldn’t pass on the former Alabama superstar. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)
“I wouldn’t pass up on Tua. I think he is a big time winner, he’s a great person, he’s a great teammate,” Swinney said during a recent ESPN appearance.
“I’m a Tua fan. … I wouldn’t pass up on Tua.”

You know you’re a real ball player when Dabo Swinney gives you his stamp of approval. Swinney is arguably the greatest coach in America.
If he says a young man can play, then the young man can play. It’s that simple, and he knows all about big time quarterbacks.
He throws a gorgeous football, he’s athletic, intelligent and can extend plays with his legs. It all comes to do whether or not he’s healthy. If he’s healthy, then he’s borderline unstoppable.

We’ll see where he goes April 23, but I have complete confidence in Tua’s skills if he’s not hurt.
