Burrow was selected by the Bengals with the No. 1 overall selection in the 2020 NFL Draft following an outstanding year at LSU. Prior to leaving for the SEC, the Ohio native spent three years with the Buckeyes.
Haskins fended off Burrow for the starting job at Ohio State before the 2018 season, prompting Burrow’s transfer to LSU. Haskins went on to throw for 4,831 yards and 50 touchdowns while completing 70 percent of his passes. The Buckeyes went 13-1 that season, winning a B1G title and defeating Washington in the Rose Bowl.
After a sensational season, Haskins was selected with the No. 15 pick in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft by the Redskins.
