How far could Joe Burrow drop?

In the top 10, how many teams would immediately grab Joe Burrow if he was available to them? Would they opt for someone else, or work a trade to gain extra picks, if he was available?

I'm asking this because as viable he is as the #1 pick, is he that important as piece of everyone else, moving forward? Right now, the top 5 appear to be Bengals, Giants, Dolphins, 'Skins, and Lions. Who among them would take Burrows, and is it possible that the Bengals could trade down and still get Burrows?

Just a thought on relative value of draft picks on a team by team basis.

Top 3 ...... only way he falls from number 1 is if he's injured or someone trades up for Young. 99.5% sure he goes #1

I can't see the Bengals passing on him, but then again, it is the Bengals

Actually, I agree with Mark. The Bengals need him. I believe the Dolphins now realize Rosen isn't the man to carry them back to the playoffs. Fitzpatrick is about 37? Not consistent. At the same time, if I was the Giants, I wouldn't let him get away, Jones is not the answer. The Redskins "might" pass on him, but if I was their front office, I wouldn't keep my fingers crossed about Haskins being the guy to lead the team down the road. Detroit? I believe they'd use that pick to get some enormous help across the board, because they have their QB in-house. Stafford just needs a healthy 2021.

The draft starts at #3. New York and Washington, assuming one of them will be at 2, are not going to give up on Jones or Haskins after one year and I do think Jones has a tremendous upside. Not as bullish on Haskins but he showed enough. At number 2 Chase Young is a lock. The real “fun” will be where Tua goes. Hebert goes early also but lot of questions on him.
