Bengals: Burrow 'checks off a lot of boxes' as QB prospect

Joe Burrow tries to escape the rush

Even though the Philadelphia Eagles are set at quarterback with Carson Wentz, the NFC East champions are still curious to see where LSU star Joe Burrow will end up in the 2020 NFL Draft, although it nearly seems like a lock he will end up with the Cincinnati Bengals.

As for the challenge ahead for Burrow, his father joined TSN 690 in Montreal and said his son is excited to possibly go No. 1 in the NFL Draft and believes he can help get the Bengals back to their winning ways.

In USA Today's most recent mock draft, Michael Middlehurst-Schwartz makes the case that Burrow should go first overall to the Benagls.

Merchandise featuring Ohio-born QB Joe Burrow has hit the shelves in his home state less than 24 hours after the Tigers claimed their national title. He has all but solidified himself as the top pick in the 2020 NFL Draft to the Bengals. Unless some other team offers Cincinnati an insane trade of draft capital and/or established talent, Burrow to the Bengals should be a lead-pipe lock.

He called Zelenskiy "a layman" in economics and said the president should be better educated about the national currency. Honcharuk was appointed by parliament last August after Zelenskiy's party won a majority.

But after watching the kind of historical season Burrow put together at LSU this past season, no one is denying the potential is certainly there for the quarterback, and there's always a chance he causes problems for Philadelphia at some point. You're not going to a team that has a great record. And, you know ... you've probably seen some of his interviews. "But he'll be confident that eventually they can win a lot of games there in Cincinnati". But, you know, the OH people are ecstatic about this opportunity, maybe, that that could happen. "He obviously looks like a very intriguing guy". Thanks to Burrow, his Heisman Trophy winning season, and his gutsy performance in the National Championship game yesterday, the first overall pick is already in Sharpie as the Cincinnati Bengals have their guy. There's a long way between now and the draft. There have been some lingering concerns that Burrow was not interested in becoming the new face of the beleaguered Bengals franchise.

Joe Burrow isn't going to pull an Eli Manning on the Cincinnati Bengals, according to his dad.

The Bengals are desperate for a franchise-changing player and Burrow could be just that.
