Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow played just 10 games as a rookie last season, but still proved what LSU fans already knew – he’s the real deal.

Burrow flashed his immense upside, which confirmed again what many already knew – he was worth being selected first overall in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Burrow has the ability to not only be the face of the Bengals franchise, but also the ability to carry a team to a place the franchise hasn’t seen in quite some time.

The numbers and analytic data also suggests that Burrow is in fact, very good at playing quarterback in the NFL.

Pro Football Focus recently released their 2021 analytical quarterback rankings. Burrow is tied 13th among all NFL quarterbacks with an 80.5 overall grade. In just 10 games played, only 466 plays which is the smallest sample size of any quarterback graded.

To keep in simple, Burrow is widely viewed as a top-15 quarterback in the league, with just 10 starts to his name.

I’ve wrote about this too many times to count on one hand, but I’ll continue doing so because I like being right.

The hype around Burrow isn’t just smoke and excitement from the media.

It’s real, and deserving.

Burrow is worth the hype, and a year from now the conversation around the Bengals team could be quite different because of him.
