Burrow is No. 1 Pick in NFL Draft; Now Quarterback for Bengals

“It’s really where I wanted to go,” said Joe Burrow, former quarterback for Louisiana State University who was chosen as the No. 1 pick in the NFL draft on Thursday, April 23. Burrow will be playing for the Cincinnati Bengals. According to Burrow, it’s only three hours away from his home town of Athens, Ohio.

Commissioner Roger Goodell announced the NFL draft selections, each player responding from his basement via video chat rather than from a big stage in New York or Las Vegas.

Burrow met with the owner and head coach for the Cincinnati Bengals at the Combine. He then visited over the phone several times with the assistants. Burrow explained that in the NFL, the team decides to draft you and then they have your rights. “For me it’s a good fit for the scheme they run on offense,” Burrow said.
