Joe Burrow appears to be the clear No. 1 this year. With the Cincinnati Bengals ready to move on from Andy Dalton, the national champion from Southern Ohio Joe Burrow looks to be a sure thing. The reigning Heisman Trophy winner looks to have two matchups per year with Baker Mayfield for the foreseeable future.
Speculation has picked up that the Miami Dolphins are exploring a trade for the top pick. Given Burrow’s talent, it’s hard to see the offer being big enough for the Bengals to trade back. Look for the Bengals to stay put at No. 1 with Burrow.
TRADE ALERT – Miami Dolphins
After an aggressive offseason, the Miami Dolphins will likely be looking for their future quarterback in the 2020 draft. After receiving positive medical news on his injured hip before the combine, look for the Dolphins to swap picks with the Washington Redskins in order to draft the mobile Alabama quarterback, Tua Tagovailoa.
It doesn’t appear the Detroit Lions or New York Giants will be in the quarterback market, but the Dolphins won’t risk the Redskins not willing to pass up the talent. The Redskins currently have Dwayne Haskins, Kyle Allen and Alex Smith on the roster at quarterback. All three have starting experience, but all have serious questions, including an injury to Smith that sidelined him for all of 2019.
With all the money spent this offseason in free agency, the Dolphins will not be satisfied with Josh Rosen or Ryan Fitzpatrick at quarterback. It will be a win-now mentality, which means trading assets to make sure they get the second-best quarterback available.
