Joe Burrow Bengals
Stephen Lew-USA TODAY Sports

The start of the 2020 NFL Draft Thursday night came without much drama. As expected, the Cincinnati Bengals selected reigning Heisman winner Joe Burrow with the first overall pick.

Cincinnati now has its potential franchise quarterback under young head coach Zac Taylor. It’s the end of the Andy Dalton era. It has fans in Ohio excited about football for the first time in a while.

Burrow is coming off an absolutely tremendous final season of college football. He led LSU to the national championship while tallying north of 6,000 total yards with 65 touchdowns and six interceptions.

Needless to say, the NFL world had its reactions to this obvious pick.
