By all accounts, Joe Burrow is the real deal. He has come in and hasn't even had to prove himself as the leader of this franchise, as his mere presence apparently demands that his teammates look to him as their leader. While that statement might sound sarcastic, it's not; in all the years I've been writing about the NFL, I've never witnessed someone walk in the door and receive as much praise and respect as the former LSU quarterback. Now, does it matter? No. What happens on Sundays (and possibly every other night of the week if NFL football is all that exists this fall) is all that will matter moving forward.

Looking ahead to next offseason, I do think Zac Taylor is safe unless the wheels completely fall off. The franchise doesn't want Burrow to have to learn two new offenses in his first two years as so many once-promising, since-failed NFL quarterbacks have. The defense will have to take a major jump in just about every metric if the 2021 Draft isn't going to be an almost exclusively defensive-minded affair for the Bengals.

BENGALS HISTORICAL DRAFT PICKS

Reach/Value (R/V) Explained
The difference between where a player is selected in the NFL draft versus where the player was listed on the final Drafttek Big Board for the season in question.
Example: A player who was listed at #50 on the Big Board and was selected at #35 will be a "Reach" of -15. Alternately, a player listed at #35 on the Big Board who was selected at #50 is a +15 "Value".

Simply put: a positive number is a Value pick, a negative number is a Reach.
