Rumors have been swirling for months now that the Dolphins would consider trading all 3 of their 1st round picks to the Bengals in order to secure the top spot in the draft. Joe Burrow, the Heisman and National Championship winning QB from LSU is the presumed #1 overall pick. And for good reason, he broke CFB records for passing yards and touchdowns, completed a perfect season, beating top 25 teams all along the way, and even taking down big-bad Clemson in the National Title game. It was the perfect year and he looks like the perfect prospect...the only question marks that remain are whether or not he's a one-year wonder who caught lightning in a bottle, or if he really is this good.
Here's the report:
And so in the weeks between now and that moment the Bengals are on the clock during the 2020 NFL Draft, the Dolphins will try to trade up to the top spot to pick Burrow, according to the source.
There is, however, a problem.
Although Bengals owner and general manager Mike Brown has said nothing definitive about keeping or trading the top pick (meaning Burrow), it’s considered an extremely long shot any team will be able to pry that pick from him.
Bengals director of player personnel Duke Tobin told reporters at the NFL Combine last month it was “doubtful”the Bengals would make such a trade.
