Report: Bengals have maxed out meeting time with Joe Burrow

The first round of the NFL Draft gets underway in a little more than a week and it doesn’t look like there will be much intrigue about the first overall pick.

Signs have pointed toward the Bengals taking former LSU quarterback Joe Burrow with that selection for some time and it continues to shape up that way. NFL teams are permitted three one-hour calls with prospects each week and Albert Breer of SI.com reports that the Bengals have used all of their allotted time with Burrow.

Those calls are about building a relationship with a player they’d be making a big investment in on April 23 and they could also help Burrow hit the ground running once the Bengals are able to actually begin on-field work.

There’s less clarity about how things will play out after the first pick, but it looks like it would be a major surprise for the Bengals to do anything but alert Roger Goodell’s basement that Burrow is their man.

  1. With the Bengals getting this young buck, the Raiders will be the dumpster fire on the NFL, because heavens knows they have no QB. Don’t worry Raiders fans if Josh Allen doesn’t pan out in Buffalo you guys can have him just like you guys took in Manuel, Losman, Edwards, and Peterman. Just lose baby,!!!!

  2. This guy has many intangibles that lots of prior #1 QB picks haven’t had. He is hard-working, intelligent, skilled in a pro-style offense, does not accept failure, and is coachable. And he is not a running back who thinks he can throw.

  3. Burrow is the best decision for long suffering Bengals fans. Keep Dalton to teach him the the playbook and personnel through COVID shutdowns, then keep Dalton as relatively low cost back-up to Burrow.

  4. The Bengals used their 3 hrs trying to convince Joe Burrow that the Bengals are not a cheap incompetent team and they really want to win for a change. If he doesn’t pull a Eli Manning and lets the Bengals draft him, he is basically committing career suicide. He better find a way out or he is screwed.

  5. Burrow is the best decision for long suffering Bengals fans. Keep Dalton to teach him the the playbook and personnel through COVID shutdowns, then keep Dalton as relatively low cost back-up to Burrow.

    I like it but dalton would probably be the league’s highest paid backup
