WATCH: Tua throws for the first time since November hip surgery

Former University of Alabama quarterback and NFL Draft prospect Tua Tagovailoa is back throwing for the first time since his hip surgery in November. A video surfaced on his personal Twitter account of him spinning the pigskin.

Before the gun slinger dislocated his hip against Mississippi State, which would end his junior season, Tagovailoa threw for 2,840 yards, 33 touchdowns and three interceptions through nine games. Tagovailoa would miss the final four games of the 2019 season, including the Iron Bowl loss to Auburn and the 35-16 victory in the Citrus Bowl over Michigan.

ESPN NFL Draft expert Mel Kiper Jr. has Tagovailoa as the second quarterback off the board in his latest mock draft. Kiper Jr. has the Alabama signal caller going to the Miami Dolphins with the No. 5 overall pick.
