There was a time when Joe Burrow, the national championship and Heisman-winning golden armed quarterback from LSU was the consensus No. 1 pick in the upcoming NFL Draft. After throwing for 60 touchdowns and 5,671 yards with a 202 college quarterback rating there could be no doubt. At least until there was.
See, Burrow hasn't thrown a football with great success in a game in over a month. And absence makes the take grow hotter. The Crimson Tide has turned on the LSU quarterback. The actual sure-thing franchise quarterback in the 2020 NFL Draft is Alabama's Tua Tagovailoa. Tua was injured this year, which people forget.
