LSU expected to dominate early rounds of 2020 NFL Draft
The NFL Draft may put up Super Bowl-type ratings on Thursday when Roger Goodell announces Joe Burrow as the No. 1 overall selection to the Cincinnati Bengals live on ESPN.
With almost nothing going on in the sports world, all eyes will be on the staggering seven/eight expected first-round draft picks that LSU has coming into the league.
Burrow, K’Lavon Chaisson, Justin Jefferson, Kristian Fulton, Grant Delpit, Patrick Queen, Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Lloyd Cushenberry are the sure-fire Day one and Day two selections for the Tigers.
Burrow is set to join Billy Cannon (1960) and Jamarcus Russell (2007) as the third No. 1 overall draft pick in LSU football history.
“Elite football intelligence,” said Joe Marino of The Draft Network when evaluating Burrow. He’s a master of pre-snap reads and how his routes mesh with the coverage. Astute understanding of coverage rotations, leverage and spacing. Exceptional anticipatory thrower.”
