Auden Tate has been in NFL for two years, and he’s already caught passes from three different quarterbacks.
Andy Dalton, Ryan Finley and Jeff Driskel are the passers Tate has played with thus far, and he’s almost certain to have a fourth this year when Cincinnati likely selects one in the 2020 NFL Draft.
The expectation is that will be LSU’s Joe Burrow, who many regard as the best quarterback prospect since Andrew Luck. In speaking with SB Nation at the Super Bowl, Tate talked about what stands out about Burrow.
“I don’t know him personally, but watching the games, he seems like a real poised player. He’s not afraid of the moment. You’re just in attack mode at all times and I like the way he plays.”
Burrow just wrapped up one of the most successful years a college quarterback has ever had, going undefeated, winning the Heisman, and leading his team to a national championship.
Needless to say, Burrow has already shown a special kind of leadership that Tate admires.
“That’s definitely somebody you want to follow. If you’re a leader, having that confidence going into stuff, you know, everybody else behind him going we know we’re good. Going to follow your lead, so I like it.”
