Cincinnati Bengals coach Zac Taylor offers thoughts on Joe Burrow
The Cincinnati Bengals hold the No. 1 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, and almost every analyst believes the team will take LSU QB Joe Burrow with that selection.
However, there has been some speculation in the media that Burrow could refuse to play for the Bengals and try to force his way elsewhere. Nothing is set in stone yet, though, so for now, the Bengals are still operating as if Burrow would play for them if they draft him.
Asked for his thoughts on Burrow, Cincinnati coach Zac Taylor had nothing but positive things to say:
Zac Taylor on Joe Burrow: He has put a lot of great things on tape. He's one of several guys we have studied…He led LSU to a championship. That goes a long way. Guys that are winners and guys who have won championships, those are things we are trying to achieve. #Bengals

Will Burrow end up in Cincinnati? He’s an Ohio native, so that likely holds some sway, but the Bengals have been bad the past few seasons and many analysts don’t see any signs of things improving.
We should learn more about Burrow and the Bengals’ plan during the NFL Combine in a few days, but for now, everything is still up in the air.
