Tua Tagovailoa is entering the NFL Draft.

One of the nation's top players the past two seasons, the Alabama star quarterback suffered a season-ending hip injury during the Tide's win over Mississippi State, which put his immediate NFL future slightly in question.

Before the injury, Tagovailoa was projected as a consensus first-round pick in the upcoming NFL Draft, but his draft stock will obviously hinge heavily on his recovery.

In three seasons at Alabama, which including a freshman season behind returning starter Jalen Hurts as well as an injury-shortened junior season, Tagovailoa threw for 7,442 yards and 87 touchdowns with just 11 interceptions.

He finishes with 69.3 career completion percentage and averaged 10.9 yards per completion with a 199.4 career quarterback rating.
