The Cincinnati Bengals didn’t pass up an opportunity to draft one of the most talented players in this year’s draft. It just so happens that LSU wide receiver has an obvious connection with Cincinnati’s franchise quarterback Joe Burrow. The two teamed up for one of the best seasons college football had ever seen in 2019 when LSU went undefeated and won a National Championship.

There are some fans a little more than surprised or mad that the team passed up Penei Sewell out of Oregon to protect Burrow. It seems the Bengals are banking on this deep offensive line class to fall into the second round, which is very possible.

Here is what fans and media had to say:

Initial excitement

There were plenty of fans that were hoping for this reunion. Chase should slide right into the void left by A.J. Green’s departure, and it isn’t crazy to say he will probably be more productive in that role. It isn’t surprising to see so many excited.

Analysis

Here are some tweets or videos that help show off why Chase was a good pick for the Bengals. This wasn’t just about getting Burrow his buddy from college. This is a receiver that was one of the best overall talents in this draft, and it happens to be at a position that can have an instant impact.

Players sounding off

Former and current Bengals players couldn’t contain their excitement for their newest star wide receiver. Joe Mixon especially sounded off with several tweets in and a row, and of course Burrow let everyone know he approved.

Tweets of the pick

These are just some of the funniest tweets talking about the Bengals selection of Chase. What was your favorite tweet from tonight?
