With the college football regular season complete and the NFL season winding down, it's a good time to take another look at how the 2020 NFL draft could shape up. Although obvious, keep in mind that much will still change over the next four months.
That said, here is my current projection for the first round of the 2020 NFL draft:
1. Cincinnati Bengals: Joe Burrow, QB, LSU
Switching from Andy Dalton to rookie Ryan Finley and back to Dalton this season has reinforced that neither Dalton nor Finley is the team's long-term answer at quarterback in Cincinnati. While Burrow may not be the top prospect in this year's draft class, it could be difficult for the Bengals to pass on making the Ohio native the face of the franchise.
Leading the Tigers to a perfect 13-0 record this season, Burrow has delivered in the biggest games and remained calm under pressure. Not only does Burrow lead the nation in completion percentage (77.9%), but he’s completed more than 70% of his pass attempts in every single game this season despite facing five top-10 opponents. The odds-on favorite to win the Heisman Trophy, Burrow has accounted for more than 5,000 yards -- 4,715 passing and 289 rushing—and 50 touchdowns -- 48 passing and three rushing -- this season.
