Bengals Add Pieces Around Joe Burrow in Fresh 7 Round Mock Draft
Weight: 221 lbs.
By now, you’ve seen nearly every possible explanation as to why Joe Burrow should be the pick for the Bengals. Heisman Trophy winner, national champion, 60 touchdown passes, 76% completion rate, arguably the greatest single-season for a college quarterback. The list of accolades and accomplishments goes on and on.
In a recent sitdown on “The Big Podcast with Shaq” Burrow sent a message that likely resounded with both Bengals decision-makers and his future teammates.
"“I’ve won everywhere that I’ve been. I’ve never had a losing season in sports from the moment I was 5 years old. I’m not a loser. I just want to go somewhere where I can win. Teams are picking at the top for a reason. And I feel like, like I said before, I’ve won everywhere that I’ve ever been. I feel like if anybody can do it, I can do it.”"
Burrow took a formerly under-achieving LSU cast, led them through the SEC gauntlet, and came out as a national champion. He’s never been a loser and it’s doubtful he’ll expect anything to change on that front once he arrives in Cincinnati. It’s a no-brainer. The Bengals should pull Burrow out of the bayou and bring him home.
