Mock Draft Thursday: 7 Days Till Draft!
Round 1 Pick 7: Tua Tagovailoa QB Alabama
This pick may be a surprise to many (including Teddy Bridgewater) unless this was the plan all along in Carolina. Tagovailoa has connections to Panthers QB coach Jake Peetz who was once an offensive assistant at Alabama. I think that Matt Rhule might be okay with gambling on a young quarterback with high upside who sustained multiple injuries during his time with the Roll Tide. Add in the fact that Rhule has a 7 year deal, and you can see where this is going. Owner David Tepper knows that it may take a few years to build a contender, but he has not been shy about trying to achieve "sustained excellence." If Tagovailoa doesn't pan out, then we'll still have Teddy Bridgewater for at least 1-2 more years.
