How the Las Vegas Raiders can move up and draft Joe Burrow

Burrow spent time at Ohio State between 2015-2017 redshirting his first year before playing 10 games over the next two seasons

Of course, there's always the possibility of another team in need of help at quarterback expressing interest in Burrow convincing Cincinnati to accept a trade, but at least Philadelphia shouldn't be concerned about the youngster joining the NFC East.

Ever since the Cincinnati Bengals clinched the top overall pick in April's draft following a two-win season in 2019, the speculation has been the team will pave the way for Burrow, and move on from Andy Dalton at some point.

"He's excited to even be in that conversation and if the Bengals do draft him, he's going to be happy", Jimmy Burrow told the Canadian radio affiliate.

LSU quarterback Joe Burrow is coming off an historic senior season that saw him throw for a record 60 touchdowns and combine for another record of 65 total touchdowns from the quarterback position. Joe Burrow played high school ball at Athens High School, which is less than 160 miles east of downtown Cincinnati.

In leading the Tigers to the national championship, Joe Burrow posted some of the best numbers in collegiate history. He set the Football Bowl Subdivision records for passing touchdowns (60) and touchdowns responsible (65).

There really shouldn't. Quarterback is the most important position in the National Football League, and Burrow has already shown that he has what it takes to work in an NFL-style offense at the highest level.

The Bengals, who hold the No. 1 pick, will also be coaching at the upcoming Senior Bowl. "He's definitely an intriguing guy. He feels it", Bengals offensive coordinator Brian Callahan said. After yesterday's blazing performance, Burrow finished his fifth-year senior season with almost 5,700 yards passing, 60 touchdowns, and just six interceptions; he completed an eye popping 76 percent of his passes and finished with a quarterback rating of 202.

"He'll look at it as a challenge", Jimmy Burrow said.
