During Wednesday episode of "Get Up" on ESPN, College Football analysts Paul Finebaum was asked if LSU quarterback Joe Burrow is trending toward being a first round draft pick?

"I think he is, Finebaum said. "He needs a big game Saturday night and a big finish, especially against Alabama on November 9. And then finish the deal. He's got a chance."

"A couple of months ago, I thought he might be third or fourth best quarterback in the SEC and people looked at me 'like are you crazy?' And that's changed, he's right up there with Tua (Tagovailoa) in my opinion."

"(Jake) Fromm never gets enough credit. I think you could go 1a, 1b, 1c with those three QB's but I would put Burrow ahead of Fromm at the moment."
Burrow has 1,864 passing yards with 22 touchdowns and three interceptions on the season. He also has two rushing touchdowns.

Tuas better still. I mean that's pretty obvious when you have teams tanking to get an early pick and draft him

Tua deserves all the props be gets. He is very good. But so is Burrow. Burrow sees the field, reads defenses, makes all of the throws and can make plays with his feet and prepares for every game. He has the tangibles and intangibles.

I agree. Tua is pretty good. He can probably compete with Burrow.

Tua is the epitome of a system qb for Bama. Let's compare Burrow to Tua in the NFL and see who stays on a roster longer. Burrow has what it takes to get drafted in the right situation and develop as a franchise qb for somebody. Tua will probably flicker out the NFL faster than a cat can lick its ass.
