Joe Burrow, the senior Quarterback from Louisiana State University, known by LSU to most people. The LSU tigers had a record breaking, undefeated season, winning the college national championship. Burrow won the offensive MVP award (Most Valuable Player) who as an individual, had a record breaking season scoring first place in total QB touchdowns, scoring 60 touchdowns this season, also Burrow scored first place in total QB rushing yards, rushing for 5,671 total QB rushing yards.To add to his season stats he also received the Heisman trophy award for the 2019-2020 college season.
As we get closer and closer to the 2020 NFL draft,Burrow is projected to be the 1st overall pick in the 1st round, drafted first before anybody. The Cincinnati Bengals, have had a 2-14 season record, making them available for the 1st pick of the 2020 NFL draft.The Cincinnati Bengals, have announced that their interested in drafting Burrow, but also on the other hand there is still a ton of talent that the Bengals have said they were interested in such as Tua Tagovailoa, Jerry Jeudy and Henry Ruggs but it definitely would not be surprising if they go with Burrow as their first pick.
The presumed number 1 overall pick was asked about returning to his home state during LSU’s visit to the White House and said he’s more than happy going anywhere next season presuming they pay him.Burrow says “Whoever wants to pay me money to play the game of football,I’ll play for them,It doesn't matter to me”, per Josh Wingrove of Bloomburg. Luckily for Burrow it’s been a long time since an NFL team has had trouble making payroll.Barring a surprise from Cincinnati, the reigning Heisman winner should also make the most money in his draft class.
