Burrow: Bengals have top pick, I have 'leverage'

On Monday, potential No. 1 pick Joe Burrow was asked about being drafted by Cincinnati in April. "If they select me, they select me," Burrow told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. "I'm going to do everything in my power to be the best football player I can be.” Burrow is in Fort Worth to accept the Davey O'Brien Award, which annually goes to the top quarterback in college football.

Former Bengals offensive coordinator and Browns head coach Hue Jackson thinks Cincinnati should take Joe Burrow with the top overall pick in the 2020 draft. In an interview with "The Pat McAfee Show" on DAZN, Jackson said the Bengals should take the recent Heisman Trophy winner and move on. "I say that for this reason: It's hard to find a quarterback in the National Football League," Jackson said. "So you have to take the swing when it's there. And he's sitting there."
