Cam vs. Tua

Recommended Posts

Very straightforward question: the more we lose, the more it's likely that we're going to be in a position to draft Tua if he falls to around the 10th pick because of his injuries. If the choice presents itself, would you rather want the new coach to start his career here with Cam and the question marks that surround him or would you rather pair Tua with the new coach and start from scratch like we did in 2011?

Oh if only it were that simple.

Depends on too many factors.

If Cam requires a new contract before stepping onto the field and Tua's medicals are the two unknowns at this point.

Answer those, along with who is going to be the next coach, and I can give my opinion.

Tua most likely won’t play in the NFL dude. 

That's an absurd statement. He's expected to make a full recovery. The only long-term concern with the hip was if any tissue died before they could go in and fix it. No tissue died, so he'll be 100% in the NFL.

Tua is made of glass.  The hip injiry is the one that has everyone concerned.

But the dude hasnt been healthy since his Freshman year.  Foot, ankle, etc injuries. 

I know its the SEC, but the players are Much bigger, faster, and stronger in the NFL.  And hit way harder.

Also not simple to assume Tua will be healthy. So that still leads me back to C1N.

I still don’t think he will get drafted. He was minutes away from dying by every news report. He’s glass dude, worse than Manzel glass. Only a desperate team would take that risk.

I’m not sure they can determine this soon whether or not he can or will develop osteonecrosis. An angiogram might lead you to believe that there’s no significant vascular injury to the femoral head, but I’m not sure it would be definitive.

This. Tua is injury prone and a little undersized. People need to look at his WR's YAC. He hits slants and the receivers do the rest of the work. Jeudy/Ruggs/Smith will all be taken in the first three rounds of the draft. Hell, Waddle might even get a look.

Holy poo. Did someone just say science on this board?
