Chargers win with Tua Tagovailoa’s decision regardless of their pick

After weighing the risks of returning to school with the immediate earnings that would come from declaring for the NFL draft, expected early first-round pick Tua Tagovailoa chose to declare for the 2020 draft. Of nearly any team in the NFL draft, the Chargers are among the biggest beneficiaries of Tagovailoa’s decision.

Tagovailoa’s decision to enter the draft comes at an excellent time for the Chargers. Only once since 2004 (when the Chargers selected and traded away Eli Manning) have the Chargers had a higher pick in the NFL draft than they do this year.
