Former NFL player Jack Brewer discusses the massive payouts college bowl sponsors bring to the game.
Even though the Philadelphia Eagles are set at quarterback with Carson Wentz, the NFC East champions are still curious to see where LSU star Joe Burrow will end up in the 2020 NFL Draft, although it nearly seems like a lock he will end up with the Cincinnati Bengals. Joe Burrow is on another level.
Burrow, who broke a rib on the last play of the first half of yesterday's National Championship game, put the team on his back in the second half. He finished the game with 463 yards through the air and five touchdowns, completing over 63 percent of his passes in the meantime; the athletic Burrow added another 58 yards and an additional touchdown on the ground as well.
Around this time previous year, the Washington Redskins and New York Giants were both in serious consideration for using one of their top draft picks on the quarterback position, which they did with Dwayne Haskins and Daniel Jones.
Burrow wasn't even considered a first-round prospect heading into this season, but he has had one of the greatest passing seasons in college football history. Burrow is poised to break the NCAA's all-time record for completion percentage in a season, and he's doing it in an offense that has him throwing downfield often. 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.
Looking at the 2020 NFL Draft, the expectation would have likely been that one of Michigan's skill guys would be the one to go highest.
The Cincinnati Bengals were given a thrilling preview of what could be to come as Joe Burrow led LSU to the College National Championship title on Monday night.
