Joe Burrow’s NFL Combine interview with Bengals reportedly went very well
There have been some questions about whether or not Joe Burrow would be cool with going to the Cincinnati Bengals in the NFL Draft, but things appear to be off to a good start.
Burrow met with the Bengals at the scouting combine in Indianapolis on Wednesday. The Bengals’ official team website wrote about the meeting and said in their article that one club official “said it was the best interview he had ever attended.”
Bengals offensive coordinator Brian Callahan praised Burrow, saying that the former LSU quarterback’s mental side and preparation are two big strengths.
“Based on what I’ve seen and everything I’ve heard about (Burrow), it’s just their mental makeup. Very similar. They don’t put themselves in that position without being wired the right way. Their preparation habits. Peyton (Manning) was notoriously one of the best ever at preparation and (Matthew) Stafford quietly is right there with him,” Callahan told the site.
Callahan previously coached Manning and Stafford, who were both No. 1 overall picks, so this could be his third time working with a quarterback who was a top overall pick.
Some chatter last week indicated Burrow could make a power play if he wanted to avoid Cincinnati, but it sounds like all is going well between the parties. Burrow appears to be on his way towards going No. 1 to the Bengals.
