Joe Burrow goes No. 1 in USA Today's latest mock draft

Joe Burrow goes No. 1 in USA Today's latest mock draft

Around this time past 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. In Thursday's radio interview, Jimmy Burrow said his son won't be concerned with the franchise's history if the Bengals select the former OH standout.

Burrow's amateur career culminated in an a spectacular performance Monday night, leading his Tigers to the national championship over Clemson.

The Bengals, who will be coaching this year's South team at the Senior Bowl, could potentially get their first up-close look at Burrow if the quarterback elects to attend the annual showcase for senior college football players happening on January 25. Considering the Cincinnati Bengals have the No. 1 selection, and are (probably) looking for a new signal-caller as they prepare to turn the page on the Andy Dalton era, it's a safe bet that Burrow ends up back in his home state of Ohio. Not surprisingly, the Bengals coaches are already talking about the Heisman victor. "He's definitely an intriguing guy".

Arsenal plan £6m bid for 27-year-old PSG defender
Kieran Tierney is out with a dislocated shoulder and Sead Kolasinac has struggled with ankle and thigh problems. The reported Arsenal target has won three Ligue 1 titles, three French Cups and three French League Cups.

"He's got natural pocket feel". He really extends the piece very, very well. He's got incredible up-field accuracy.

Of course, there's always the possibility of another team in need of help at quarterback expressing interest in Burrow convincing Cincinnati to accept a trade, but at least Philadelphia shouldn't be concerned about the youngster joining the NFC East. The ball hardly ever hits the ground in a game, which is rare.

In 15 games this season, the 23-year-old quarterback completed 76.3 percent of his passes for 5,671 yards, 60 touchdowns, just six interceptions, a whopping 10.8 yards per attempt average and 12.5 adjusted passing yards per attempt. He just naturally places the ball where the boys can play.
