Anybody need a refresher in the lead-up to the 2020 NFL draft? I have you covered with the latest on quarterbacks Joe Burrow, Tua Tagovailoa and Justin Herbert, along with my thoughts on this historically deep wide receiver class, what the Patriots and Bucs might do, and more.
For the first time in a long, long time, I won't be at the draft. I'm going virtual, along with the rest of the NFL. But you can still catch me for all seven rounds Thursday night through Saturday.
Let's go 30 questions to reset this class, answering all of the biggest final questions before the Bengals are on the clock for Round 1 (8 p.m. ET on ABC, ESPN and the ESPN App).
Joe Burrow is going No. 1, right? Is there any chance the Bengals trade the pick?
After 42 years studying the NFL draft, I'll never say never, but it's close -- I'd put the chances of Burrow going to Cincinnati at 99%. He's the best quarterback in this class, and it's not close. And he's a local kid who is going to energize a fan base that desperately needs some hope after a 2-14 season.
What makes Burrow so special?
For me, it's his intuitiveness in the pocket. Burrow is so good slipping and dipping and sliding by pass-rushers. He has outstanding awareness. And when he escapes the pocket, he is extremely accurate. That's why I have compared him to Tony Romo. The LSU signal-caller doesn't have many flaws, and coaches and teammates rave about his leadership and the way he played in the biggest moments. That's why he made my list of favorite prospects.
