Joe Burrow reveals which National Football League team he's willing to play for

Joe Burrow reveals which National Football League team he's willing to play for

The Cincinnati Bengals have the top selection and are already talking about Joe Burrow.

Jimmy Burrow, the father of the Heisman Trophy-winning LSU quarterback, told Montreal's TSN 690 radio on Thursday that his son is ready if he's the No. 1 pick this spring. "The Bengals, in the opinion of many, can not pass on a potential franchise quarterback in Burrow, whose father already has said his son has no qualms about going to Cincinnati".

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.

Prior to transferring to LSU, Burrow spent three seasons at Ohio State and even went to high school outside of Cinncinati.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Cincinnati Bengals have no intention of trading away the the No. 1 draft pick.

The playlist also includes tracks by one of the Obama's longtime favorite artistes, Beyonce , The Carters and Destiny's Child. Mrs Obama is a dedicated health advocate and teamed up with Beyoncé in 2015 to promote her Lets Move fitness campaign.

Burrow, an Ohio (Athens) native, has already spawned rave reviews from coaches within the Bengals' organization.

If the Carolina Panthers really are going to trade Cam Newton, as has been reported, then they'd be a very intriguing team in this scenario as well.

Jimmy Burrow said his son won't be concerned with the Bengal's history, which includes no playoff wins since 1991. The Tigers still have a trip to the White House and a parade in Baton Rouge planned before the Senior Bowl, which will include Oregon's Justin Herbert, another quarterback Cincinnati is keeping an eye on.

"You're always, if you're the top pick or one of the top picks, that's the way the NFL Draft is set up, you're not gonna get picked by a team that has a great record", said Jimmy.
