Joe Burrow issues message to his LSU teammates after missing team's canceled Pro Day
If not for the coronavirus pandemic, 32 NFL teams would be represented in Baton Rouge on Friday watching Joe Burrow and his LSU teammates workout during the team’s latest Pro Day event.
That’s something Burrow is having a difficult time dealing with as he sits back home in Ohio and away from his LSU teammates.
“Today would’ve been our pro day, a day I had been looking forward to for a long time and the last time 2019-2020 LSU Tigers competed together,” Burrow shared on Friday. “I miss my guys.”
This isn’t the first time Burrow has conveyed just how important LSU’s Pro Day would have been — not for himself, but for his teammates to be given one final opportunity to improve their stock for NFL talent evaluators.
Bruce Feldman of The Athletic recently shared a note one of the staffers at LSU shared about Burrow and his disappointment regarding the cancelation of LSU’s Pro Day event:
“Wanna know why Joe Burrow won the national championship? Cause yesterday he calls me and tells me that at all costs he need Pro Day to happen. I tell him that it’s unlikely, cause the NFL has taken their people off the road. I say ‘but it won’t matter cause you are going to be the first pick in the draft.’ He then tells me that it’s not about him. It’s about the guys that didn’t go to the combine, he wants them to have every chance to get drafted. I love that dude.”
That tells you all you need to know about Burrow and a big reason why the Bengals are likely going to select the reigning Heisman Trophy winner with the first overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.
