2020 NFL Mock Draft: Joe Burrow’s Big Weakness
The 2020 NFL Draft is just around the corner. Most people are confident that Heisman-winning LSU star Joe Burrow will be taken with the top overall selection.
While the Cincinnati Bengals are pretty much a lock to take Burrow, he is not without weaknesses.
Recently, Bucky Brooks did an analysis on NFL.com that delved into precisely what that weakness is.
“It was one of the more magical seasons we’ve ever seen,” Brooks said.
“But I’m still going to rate my concern at a 7. This is the reason why. Last season, we saw him dominate in college football. But Joe Brady was the guy that orchestrated the passing game…If Joe Brady isn’t around, how is Joe Burrow going to play?
“I think when you’re doing the full examination, you have to examine the entire body of work. I’m just worried about Joe Burrow’s play being kind of inflated by the system he played in at LSU.
“Can he replicate that in the National Football League without his offensive playcaller?”
Will Burrow be able to silence the doubters in his rookie campaign? Time will tell.
