How much is Joe Burrow involved in the Cincinnati Bengals design process?

CINCINNATI – There have been several reports of Joe Burrow’s possible involvement in the Bengals’ pre-draft process.

Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer reports the star quarterback for the Bengals is “baffled” to bring in former teammate and top wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase in the fifth pick.

An unnamed staff trainer reportedly shot down that report last week.

How much is Burrow involved in the process?

Dan Hoard asked Bengal’s director of player staff, Duke Tobin, exactly this question on Monday.

“I speak to a lot of people throughout the process,” Tobin said on the Bengals Booth podcast. “He’s a dedicated guy, so I like dealing with dedicated guys. We just leave it at that.”

Tobin didn’t say much, but he essentially confirmed that he had spoken to Burrow about Cincinnati’s draft plans.

This could have been a simple conversation about Chase, Terrace Marshall, and other prospects Burrow played with while at LSU. Or their conversation could have been more specific. Tobin might have asked Burrow about his vision for the future and how the fifth choice fits Cincinnati’s potential future success.

Why not ask the present and future of the franchise what he thinks of taking Chase and / or Penei Sewell with the fifth choice? The Bengals seem to be traced back to these two perspectives.

Cincinnati will likely take an offensive player with fifth choice. Your star quarterback will be directly influenced by whoever they choose. Getting Burrow’s thoughts on both types makes sense.

Listen to Hoard’s entire conversation with Tobin below.
