To the shock of absolutely no one, the Cincinnati Bengals selected LSU football’s Joe Burrow with the first pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.
There wasn’t much drama leading up to the pick. Everyone knew Burrow was the best player in the draft. The only question was whether or not a team would be able to make a strong enough offer for the Bengals to give up the No. 1 overall pick.
The Miami Dolphins made some attempts (though it’s not clear what they offered), but ultimately the Bengals made the wise to decision to keep the pick and take Burrow.
