Burrow could rise in the rankings depending on how the offseason goes. As it stands, his less-than-usual time with his receivers is worrisome, so he may not have a “normal” rookie season. I have a regression model to get a starting point for rookie quarterbacks and Burrow came in with the highest-projected completion percentage, the second-highest projected touchdown percentage, the fourth-highest projected-YPA and the fourth-lowest projected interception percentage in the 55-player sample. He’s also projected to rush for 18.1 yards per game, giving him dual-threat ability to go along with a potent receiving corps that includes A.J. Green, Tyler Boyd, Tee Higgins, Auden Tate, John Ross and Joe Mixon. Burrow is an intriguing No. 2 quarterback pick that might pay dividends by midseason.
