Joe Burrow is coming off what can be argued as one of the best college football seasons ever put together for not only a quarterback but for a team in general. After 15 games Joe has been able to pull off one of the most difficult things to accomplish in college football which is a perfect 15-0 season, take home the Heisman Trophy, and to cap it all off with a National Championship is a remarkable achievement. Joe Burrow was able to pull this off all while breaking all sorts of records; his play on the field has many experts convinced he will be the first player drafted in the 2020 NFL draft.
LSU fans along with Joe Burrow supporters across the country were all hoping to get to see him play one last college game in the Reese’s Senior Bowl. Unfortunately, they will not be granted that wish as Joe Burrow has declined his invitation to the bowl game. The executive producer of the game Jim Nagy announced on his twitter that Joe declined to play in the game because he would like to spend more time with his family. However, you have to think that this move is about more than just family time considering that just like any game, a serious injury is possible on any given snap. Especially since Burrow said himself on the Pardon My Take podcast that after taking a big hit in the championship game he has torn cartilage in his ribs.
All in all, Joe Burrow has just completed possibly one of the best seasons by a collegiate Quarterback ever. So the Senior Bowl essentially won’t have any effect on his draft stock at all, and this is probably the smartest decision for his health leading up to the draft.
