According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter during an appearance on the Dan Patrick Show, said the Bengals aren’t playing ball: “They have told everyone thank you very much, but we’re going to take [Joe Burrow].”
Heisman-winning quarterback and national champion Joe Burrow will be the No. 1 overall pick by the Bengals on Thursday night.
Burrow was the first LSU quarterback to throw for 2,500 yards and run for 300 yards in the same season, and he finished the year off with a big performance against UCF in the Fiesta Bowl (394 passing yards with a school-bowl-record five TD passes).
There were rumors that the Dolphins may try to trade up to get Burrow, but that will not happen. The team is set, and I think they are making the right move!
