The Cincinnati Bengals will reportedly keep the first pick of the 2020 NFL draft Thursday night.

According to Adam Schefter, the team received calls from the Miami Dolphins to gauge interest in potentially dealing the pick. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

However, they’ve made it clear that they will hold onto it.

There’s always speculation about trades, but I’m not sure anybody really thought the Bengals would trade the pick.

They need a quarterback. No offense to Andy Dalton, but you’re just not going to win many games with that guy spinning the football.

Joe Burrow is ready and waiting to be selected. If you need a QB and the Heisman winner is sitting there, you don’t trade the pick.

You use the pick to draft a new face of the franchise. That’s exactly what the Bengals will do Thursday night.

The Dolphins will have to settle for Tua or Justin Herbert if they want a passer. Either way, they’re not getting Burrow. I’d bet my life savings on that.
