1. Cincinnati Bengals: QB Joe Burrow (LSU)
It’s funny how things can come full circle. Burrow — a native of Ohio — began his career at Ohio State before transferring to LSU. In one season, he’s transformed himself into being the best player in college football. The Heisman Trophy winner is decisive with his throws, has tremendous pocket presence, and can spray the ball all over the field. Plus, he’s an above-average athlete, and is tough as nails. Burrow is the perfect player to help rebuild this franchise in his home state.
