TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) Tua Tagovailoa said being assured he'd likely remain a high NFL draft pick could make “the biggest decision of my life" a little easier.

The Alabama quarterback is still weighing his options and going through rehab for the right hip injury that ended his junior season - and potentially his career with the 11th-ranked Crimson Tide. Once regarded as a potential No. 1 overall pick, Tagovailoa said Thursday that if he feels he'll still be a Top 10 or 15 pick, that might be too tempting to stick around.
