The Cincinnati Bengals, who hold the rights to the no. 1 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, have always been attached to top prospect, former LSU quarterback Joe Burrow, and on Wednesday two members of the team's coaching staff shared their thoughts on Burrow's potential as an NFL player. Both franchises are nearing the end of the road for two all-timers in Philip Rivers and Cam Newton, respectively, and exploring a swap with the Bengals to have the right to draft Joe Burrow is a no-brainer.
"He's got natural pocket feel. He feels it", Bengals offensive coordinator Brian Callahan said. "It seems like he never takes his eyes off down the field". He extends the play really, really well.
After leading LSU to an impressive 42-25 victory over Clemson in the National Championship by throwing for 463 yards and five touchdowns, Burrow built an even stronger case to be the top overall pick by the Bengals once the draft arrives in April. He's got incredible up-field accuracy.
Now that Burrow is officially a champion in college football, here are 10 surprise teams that should try to pull off the unthinkable by convincing the Bengals to give up the top overall pick in this year's draft through a trade.

It's inevitable for any team holding the No. 1 pick to get calls from other teams, but Schefter's report makes plenty of sense given the teams he mentioned, the Chargers and Panthers.
In an interview with the Bengals' in-house website, Cincinnati quarterbacks coach Alex Van Pelt praised Burrow's ability to create plays, limit turnovers and make good decisions.
Just like every other quarterback that enters the National Football League, there is no guarantee of Burrow going on to succeed, whether he happens to join the Bengals or another team. Add in the fact that he's an OH native - and already loved by most of the fan base - and this seems like a near-lock at No. 1 overall.
