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.

You missed my edit.

I agree on Tua's arm talent.

I need to catch up on other QB's. There has to be a good one that won't destroy our draft this year and next.
I need to take a closer look at Love, Eason, and Hurts.

If there was a create-a-player for SP's offense it's Burrow and that is factoring in physical talent, football IQ, reaction/decision making speed, coaching, leadership, confidence and grit. And before comments rain in about his arm strength, if there is anything we have learned over the last 14 years is that you don't have to have the strongest arm, you have to know the offense and be accurate.

There is a piece of trade value that everyone seems to forget and that is Teddy. Everyone just assumes we would just let him walk in FA. He's a 27 y/o experienced QB who has earned a starting job in the right situation. The FO can franchise tag him and trade him to a team that needs a starter who might not want to go with a rookie. Colts, Panthers, Chargers, Bucs, Dolphins, Bengals and Bears all come to mind as they either don't have a QB or there are questions surrounding if their current QB is their QB of the future. The Bears gave 2 1sts+ for Mack who disappears in games, would those picks have been better used on a consistent QB?

On the surface it may seem that we don't have what it will take to move up and grab Burrow at #1, but it is not impossible and it may take more than one trade to do it. Some options are trading into the middle of the 1st which a franchise tagged TB would easily have that value. So we could accumulate draft capital and them move up.

Another option is do the Bengals really want to go with a rookie? They have WRs, TEs, RBs and their defense has talent. They lack a QB and offensive line help. TB, 2020 1st and 2021 1st would be enough to move move up to #1. In that scenario, we really only give up the 2021 1st.

If there was ever a Saints team that could withstand trading draft capital to get the QB of the future, it is this current team due to how successful the FO has had over recent years in the draft and UDFA finds.
I dont care what the Panthers are offering, I wouldn't help make their team better.

fwiw, I have a client in Cincinnati who is a diehard Bengals fan and he told me there’s no chance the Bengals pass on Chase Young.

Yeah, that was only an example. There are a few teams I wouldn't make better and the Panthers are one of them along with the Bucs and Falcons. That was more of a list of teams who have uncertainty surrounding their QB. With the amount of money Carolina can save by releasing Cam, I'm pretty sure he's gone.

I didn't know that you had to be born in Louisia
Of course you don't have to be, although a lot of great football players are. ;)
My point was more that Joe Burrow is Ohio's native son, so he won't be sad playing for the Bengals making millions. It's actually a compelling storyline if he can go there and resurrect their franchise.

You snatched that quick. I hate how this saves your posts and then stacks them with other posts.

His story would be good going either way, back to Ohio or down to NO.

Jake Fromm and Sam Ehlinger are 2 to keep an eye on. I have Burrow and Tua ranked above them, but either could make good qbs with the right team

Is your client a high end member of the front office or coaching staff? Likely not and as such likely doesn't know what they are thinking.

Fromm doesn't strike me as an NFL QB, though I could be dead wrong. I'll watch him this weekend, I hope not too long.

Ehlinger is intriguing. How's his size? I know nothing intimidates him, and the game is not too big for him. How's his pocket presence and tight window accuracy?

My guess is that the thinking will be that by the time the draft rolls around, Chase Young will be the clear top prospect and that there will be a cluster of QBs with similar grades. Duke Tobin has been flying around scouting the QBs and I’m not sure one of them will jump out above the others. Would the Bengals be better off drafting Joe Burrow and then ? In the 2nd round or Chase Young and then a QB that grades out close to Burrow at pick 33? Not going to be any Chase Youngs at 33, but it’s likely there’s a great QB prospect still sitting there, especially if they pass on a QB in round 1.

Not sure if this has been mentioned but maybe we start a homicide investigation a couple days before the draft... I kid...
