Heisman winner Joe Burrow may very well be the No. 1 overall pick next April, and right now the Cincinnati Bengals have that spot locked up. They also need a quarterback, so it’s natural to assume the Bengals could draft Burrow.
On Sunday morning, former Bengals quarterback Boomer Esiason put Burrow on the spot during a live CBS broadcast, handing the LSU quarterback a Bengals helmet.
Well that wasn’t awkward at all.
Sarcasm aside, Burrow handled Esiason’s gift with the same poise and aplomb he’s shown all season for the Tigers.
