Kevin Faulk explains why Joe Burrow-Tom Brady comparison isn't crazy
Former LSU QB Joe Burrow is the presumptive No. 1 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft and will likely end up with the Cincinnati Bengals.
What kind of player are the Bengals getting? Well, Burrow has drawn comparisons to 6-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady recently.
LSU assistant Kevin Faulk (who played on the New England Patriots with Brady) said on Mad Dog Sports Radio on Sirius XM recently that he doesn’t think the comparison is crazy (via 247Sports):
“I know he doesn’t like the comparison (with Brady),” Faulk said. “But the only reason why I compare him to Tom is because of his preparation. His preparation is elite. His understanding of the teams were playing, the coverages we’re playing, the blitzes that they’re bringing. Of course they’re going to get you once in a while because they change up and disguise but this kid reminds me so much of how Tom prepares for a game and how much he knew everything was going to happen over the course of a game.”
Obviously, it’ll be tough to live up to that lofty comparison, but Burrow has overcome the odds before.
Can he lead the Bengals to a title? We’ll see how he fares in the NFL starting this fall.
