As we know, our Detroit Lions have the No. 3 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft and there have been a handful or so players who have been mentioned as potential picks.
The possibility of endorsement deals, which were forbidden for college players during Burrow's time at LSU, will vastly increase his earning potential at the professional level.
The 23-year-old's performance on the night saw him set the FBS single-season record for touchdowns with 65, adding to his first-placed 5,671 passing yards on the year. 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.
An Ohio native, Burrow is nearly a surefire lock to head back to the Buckeye state and hope to lead Zac Taylor and the Bengals out of their evident rebuild.
This may seem unfair for Dalton after looking at all of the years spent under center for Cincinnati's offense, and what took place this past season wasn't exactly his fault, but Burrow is simply too talented of a quarterback to pass on with the top overall pick. If the San Francisco 49ers have shown us anything in 2019, it is that bolstering your defensive front and the ability to get after the quarterback is a fantastic model to follow.
Burrow led LSU to its 42-25 national championship win over Clemson Monday night, prompting late-night launches of championship merchandise across the state of Louisiana.
Now that Burrow is officially a champion in college football, here are 10 surprise teams that should try to pull off the unthinkable by convincing the Bengals to give up the top overall pick in this year's draft through a trade.
