LSU QB Joe Burrow goes #1 overall to the Cincinnati Bengals

Superstar LSU Quarterback Joe Burrow goes first overall to his home-state Cincinnati Bengals as expected.

This selection was reportedly as close to a done deal as it can get despite rumors of the Miami Dolphins trying to make a last second push to get the number one pick.

Burrow had a senior season for the ages, leading the Tigers to a national championship on the strength of a perfect 15-0 record.

The Ohio State transfer won the Heisman Trophy in a landslide, throwing for a college football record 60 touchdowns to just six interceptions. Burrow said, “I knew I was going to have a really good season because I knew we had really good players coming back. I had great coaches and we were going to work really, really hard to do it. But to jump up to No. 1 overall is crazy to me. But it’s a dream come true.”

Burrow is the third straight Heisman Trophy winning quarterback taken with the first overall pick in the draft.
