Other potential options at No. 1Assuming the Bengals have the No. 1 overall pick, their only other potential option is pass rusher Chase Young. Young was the best defensive player in college football this year, and the standout defensive end has been one of the stars on Ohio State’s defense for the last two seasons. He is a potential game changer along the lines of 2014 No. 1 overall pick Jadeveon Clowney, registering 16.5 sacks, 10.5 tackles for loss and seven forced fumbles in 2019.Young’s odds of being the No. 1 overall pick are +175, and he would likely be the first pick if the Giants or Redskins ended up with the selection. Those franchises both selected a quarterback in the first round last year, and both teams are looking for another piece for their championship puzzle.Georgia tackle Andrew Thomas is a perceived option at No. 1, too, with odds of +1600, but offensive linemen are the biggest question marks in the draft process. The last offensive tackle to go No. 1 was Eric Fisher, and he is perceived as a bust with just one Pro Bowl selection during his career. Joe Burrow made history on Saturday night. He earned the second-most first place votes in the history of Heisman Trophy voting en route to becoming the second LSU player to win the award. While Burrow had nine fewer first place votes than O.J. Simpson, he set the record for greatest percentage of first place votes by appearing No. 1 on 90.7 percent of voters’ ballots, and he had the most points in the history of Heisman Trophy voting. We haven’t seen a turnaround like this since Carson Palmer’s remarkable 2002 season, and like Palmer, Burrow has seen his draft stock soar. Burrow was seen as a mid-round prospect coming into the year, but he is now the odds-on favorite to be the No. 1 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. He has surpassed quarterbacks like Justin Herbert, Tua Tagovailoa, Jake Fromm and Jacob Eason, making Burrow the headline quarterback in next year’s draft class.

The first reason is obvious. He is perceived as the best quarterback in this year’s class, and the position has never been more valued. Quarterbacks have been taken No. 1 overall in eight of the last 11 drafts, and players like Jared Goff, Baker Mayfield and Kyler Murray were selected first overall even though many scouts gave them lower grades than elite players at other positions. No position is more important than quarterback in the modern NFL. Hitting on a quarterback in the draft makes you an immediate contender, as teams get to lock down a potential franchise player for around $4 million a year for the first four years of their contract. That allows front offices the ability to splurge in free agency at other positions, like we saw with the Chiefs this offseason.Patrick Mahomes is the league’s reigning MVP, but he is slated to make just over $9.7 million in 2019 and 2020. Having the league’s best quarterback at such a cheap price gave Kansas City the opportunity to revamp the league’s worst defense by adding Frank Clark, Alex Okafor, Tyrann Mathieu and Bashaud Breeland in the offseason. Seattle was the first team to benefit like this earlier in the decade with Russell Wilson, and Houston has splurged too thanks to Deshaun Watson. That kind of potential value means that any quarterback with a top 10 grade will likely go No. 1 overall in the draft.NFL MOCK DRAFT 2020Joe Burrow goes to Bengals; CeeDee Lamb, Tee Higgins join AFC EastThe team likely to be picking first in the 2020 NFL Draft will find it hard to pass up Burrow, too. The Bengals haven’t locked up the No. 1 pick in next year’s draft just yet, but it would be hard for the Bengals to not finish as the worst team in the league at this point. Cincinnati is 1-13 and two games worse than any other team in the NFL, so a loss in either of the Bengals’ last two games will lock down the No. 1 pick. They are slight underdogs, per the NFL betting odds, on the road against Miami this week, and they will probably be underdogs at home against Cleveland in Week 17. Cincinnati likely has an 85 to 90 percent chance of securing the No. 1 pick given its remaining schedule, and the Bengals would almost certainly select Burrow. LSU’s star quarterback played high school football in Athens, Ohio, and he began his collegiate career at Ohio State before transferring to LSU. Burrow highlighted the struggles of southeast Ohio in his Heisman Trophy acceptance speech, endearing him to many in Cincinnati.Bengals fans expect their team to draft Burrow No. 1 since neither Andy Dalton nor Ryan Finley are the answer, but there is another player who could go first overall.
