I think we need to do what ever it takes to get Burrow. I don’t think it would take a Ditka type trade but we need him.

He checks off every box you could ask a QB to have. He doesn’t get rattled or make bad throws. He knows part of our offense already and executed it to perfection. He broke the record for highest completion percentage in NCAA.

And what ever test they were talking about where they tested the team for reactionary skills and other things he scored in the 90th percentile. He’s is the second coming of Drew and can keep this offense flowing when Drew retires.

Burrow to the Saints will be an annual event like Sean Payton to Dallas.

Burrow just had to go delete his twitter history for some questionable tweets. He’s not a perfect prospect. I’d be more excited about Taysom Hill than any QB coming out this season.
Yeah Apparently some holier than thou types were trying to black ball him for some dumb tweets he made when he was 13. No one that has half a brain cares what a 13 yo tweeted.

We managed to overcome the rickey williams trade rather quickly, so I say go all in for Burrow. He is by far the best pro style prospect this year and would be a big draw for ticket sales. Many people from Baton Rouge and surrounding areas aren’t really into the Saints. This would help increase the fan base. I know many would say well we don’t need them, but I say the more the merrier.
That may be the dumbest comment I've seen on this forum, and I've seen some stupid $#!+

Unfortunately, this is true... Burrow will go the Bengals, and that organization will ruin him. It sucks, but at least he’ll always have his Heisman and he’ll be rich.
I don't feel sorry for him one bit. I bet he won't feel bad playing for the Bengals. I get the love because Burrow has played for LSU for two season and is a great QB. What I don't get is how that has in effect elevated his status to Louisiana's native son. He should play for the Bengals and try to make them relevant. Dude was born and raised in Athens, Ohio, and was a Buckeye for two years. It's not like he was born on the bayou.

...until his rookie contract is up, at least. Remember, there's free agency now. It's not like when Archie was stuck playing for the 1970s Saints organization.

You don't give up your entire draft for any player. You remember that guy that Burrow broke a bunch of records of this year Tim Couch?? Yeah, he was a sure thing too. Most of LSUs games this year have been 7 on 7 drills. Guys aren't gonna be that open next year. Burrow could be a stud. He could also just as easily be mediocre or worse....and the odds of him being anything remotely close to Drew Brees is just astronomical.

If by some miracle he falls into the teens, you make a move...otherwise, no way

I remember Couch well. He doesn't have half the desire and toughness of Burrow, not in college, not in the Pros. He compares better to Tom Brady, though he is far ahead of Brady at this point.

Yet....he had the greatest statistical season in the history of the SEC before this year. It's real easy to remember Tim Couch the Cleveland Brown and talk about his lack of toughness....nobody thought that when he was at Kentucky. Burrow has not played an NFL game yet...so I don't know how you can make that statement......

I admin that I did not look at a large size of his college work, but after some of the videos I saw, he didn't necessarily blow me away.

Granted the league is now more of a wide open passing league than it was at that time.

However after watching Couch's college highlights, most of his passes were extremely short. A lot of quick passes to the backs, slants and screens.

So far we see that Burrow is more capable than that.

But, but, but he’s thrown for more yards in a season than Tim Couch, Johnny Manziel, and Chad Kelly!
What makes Burrow the prospect he’s become are things none of the QB’s you listed comparable like his pocket awareness and leadership.....combine that with the most accurate passing % in the history of NCAA Football and I think he has a good case for a top pick.

But you made some people chuckle so there’s always that.

Face it guys. He’s gonna be a Bengal.
Correct.

Giants appear to be only team that could end up being the first pick in the draft besides Cincy. Although I think Cincy only wanted to avoid a winless season and will revert to their losing ways from here on out.
