NFL draft expert Todd McShay thinks LSU quarterback Joe Burrow will be the first pick in 2020.

In a video he tweeted Monday, McShay said he believes Burrow will be the top pick, and compared him to Eagles star Carson Wentz. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

I think we’re going to hear a lot more opinions like this one down the stretch. The hype around Burrow is for real.

It’s not hard to see why. He throws an incredibly crisp and accurate ball, he’s got that “it” factor you want in a starting quarterback and the man just wins.

McShay is arguably the most knowledgable guy on the planet when it comes to the draft. If he says Burrow is likely to be the first pick, then the quarterback probably will be.

You should get your bets in while you can because it’s almost certainly going to happen.

Of course, before he goes to the NFL, Burrow needs to get a win over Oklahoma and then beat Clemson or Ohio State. I can’t speak for the title game, but I fully expect him to annihilate Oklahoma.

Tune in Dec. 28 to watch it all go down. It should be a ton of fun.
