The 2020 NFL Draft class brings us a loaded crop of quarterbacks, with Alabama's Tua Tagovailoa among them. Tua projects to be a top-10 pick by most, but there's likely to be quite a few teams competing for his services.

With that in mind, let's take a look at some expert predictions for Tua's landing spot in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Tua Tagovailoa Draft Projection 2020

Bleacher Report
Matt Miller, of Bleacher Report, has Tua going to the Miami Dolphins with the No. 5 overall selection.

CBS Sports
Ryan Wilson, of CBS Sports, also has the Miami Dolphins picking Tua with the No. 5 overall selection in the first round.

Mel Kiper Jr.
Mel Kiper Jr., of ESPN, continues the trend here, predicting the Miami Dolphins to take Tua at No. 5 overall.

USA Today
Luke Easterling, of USA Today's Draftwire, predicts the Miami Dolphins pass on Tua in favor of Oregon's Justin Herbert, instead going with the Los Angeles Chargers to select Tua at No. 6 overall.

Walter Football
Walter Cherepinsky, of Walter Football, shares the same opinion as Easterling in that the Los Angeles Chargers will be selecting Tua, but he thinks they will trade up to No. 3 and take him there, ensuring they get him before the Dolphins have the chance.

FanDuel Sportsbook
The Dolphins currently have the best odds to draft Tua with -115 odds, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. However, Tua's over/under draft position is 3.5, which would insinuate the oddsmakers believe the Dolphins will make a trade up to No. 3 or No. 4 in order to ensure they get their guy. As of now, the Detroit Lions hold the No. 3 pick and the New York Giants have No. 4.
