Joe Burrow to be the main attraction in the Las Vegas NFL Draft in April

Joe Burrow had, what could be termed as arguably the best season for a quarterback in the history of the NCAA. Joe Burrow broke the single-season passing touchdown record (60), while also leading the LSU Tigers to set the single-season points record (726) in the process. The star quarterback also snapped up the Heisman Trophy earlier last year. Should the Cincinnati Bengals choose to keep their No. 1 pick in the Las Vegas NFL Draft, there is a high possibility of the Bengals drafting Joe Burrow. With the NFL's recent announcement, fans will be able to witness Joe Burrow being ferried to the stage in the waters of the Fountains of Bellagio.
