Wonder how far he’s gonna fall in the draft also including his injury history. Although gut feeling says Miami is still taking him despite all the reports

 

wonder what they consider a bad interview.

That was my first assumption but I’m starting to wonder if teams are turned off due to his injury history and maybe something more. These guys are experts and they obviously see something in him that they don’t like

Yes. He won't last past 6. If Miami doesn't take him the Chargers will.

Unless the rumors about Washington wanting him are true. I know he’s said he doesn’t want to play for Detroit but then again who would ? Lol

Aussie, agreed and I’ll add why is anyone paying close attention to Bleacher Report or Mel Kiper?  They know nothing, but not a lot to write about during this quarantine.  Tua could end up as a generational player if he can stay healthy.  I was listening to Movin the Chains Friday with Pat Kirwan and Jim Miller, which is really the flagship of NFLR for those who don’t have Sirius, and Kirwan an ex executive for the Jets said there is now way Tua drops below top 10.  He gave all the reasons why and yes, Herbert could be good, but if Tua had been given all of these reports from doctors released this week, Kirwan stated he won’t last past 5th overall.

Didn't like his answer to "If you could be any animal, what would it be?"

Just keep in mind that Mel Kiper thought Blaine Gabbert was a better QB prospect than Cam Newton and that Jimmy Clausen was going to succeed in the NFL.

Chargers want him and the league wants him to get there. Definitely a smokescreen.

Yeah but the chargers are at 6 and Miami is at 5. I think they take Herbert

that’s the idea of the smokescreen, to get him pushed down some. The poor interview leak probably came from the Chargers in the hopes that he would get to them.

This is gonna be a very interesting draft. My money still says he’s going to Miami due to them not being able to move up to get  Burrow and the chargers are left with Herbert or they take a QB in day 2

Yep I agree. I think the smokescreens never work, but if they Chargers can create enough controversy around Tua to get people to pass on him, maybe you get Miami to question their choice. I think there is a chance that Miami could really like Love, but Tua fits great  with what Chan Gailey likes to do. 
 

But my tinfoil hat interpretation here is that the league needs this LA thing to work. LA has the highest population of Pacific Islanders, of all of the cities outside of the state of Hawaii. They need to tap into that population of fans. Las Vegas is way up there too, which is why Marcus Mariota is there. I think everyone gets together here for the good of the league and gets Tua to LA.

This message brought to you by the Las Vegas Raiders and/or the Los Angeles Chargers.

I find that hard to believe. Everyone raves about the kid. 

 

If anything the narrative that he played for a stacked Alabama team is more significant
