We've known this for months now, but it's finally official: The Cincinnati Bengals have selected LSU quarterback Joe Burrow as the No. 1 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.


While at LSU, Burrow would have an incredible senior season en route to the Heisman Trophy and a national championship. Statistically, he would throw for a total of 5,671 yards and a mammoth-sized 60 touchdowns. His interception rate would also be lethal, only throwing for six in the season. Altogether, he would complete 76.3% of his passes to compile a 202.0 Rating. Burrow would also make movement on the ground, rushing for 368 yards and five touchdowns.


It was rumored that the Miami Dolphins could make a power move to grab Burrow, but the Bengals stuck with what they already told him: They were taking him with the No. 1 pick.
