The first overall pick is always big news in the NFL, and it is a moment that everyone watches. That also includes other NFL players — past and present — taking in the event.
So it comes as no surprise that many of Joe Burrow’s former and future teammates took out a moment to send their congratulations to the future Bengal.
You will see names from across the NFL, but one of the most surprising things is the amount of Ohio State Buckeyes who still have a clear affiliation to Burrow. It really just goes to show what kind of leader the Bengals just got.
There were some current and former Bengals who couldn’t wait to get a hold of the future signal caller for Cincinnati. It really is great for fans to see the Bengals alum embrace Burrow so quickly. You can tell that everyone can feel what is starting in Cincinnati.
Of course, Burrow has plenty of former LSU teammates and former players ready to talk up one of the best players, not only in school history but in college football history. It is hard to not be giddy hearing how much all these players love Burrow.
