Miami Dolphins have been scouting Burrow extensively, have the Saints?
Yahoo - The 6-foot-4 Burrow, who is now completing 79.6 percent of his passes on the season, there just seems to be a real fascination with him in the league right now.

“Accuracy, toughness, confidence, athleticism [and] good, quick decision making,” the senior scout told us. “It’s all on display there. It’s hard not to like.”

Burrow’s adjusted completion percentage (which accounts for dropped passes, throwaways, spiked passes, batted ball and passes where the QB was hit while they threw) is an astounding 85.2 right now — no other college QB with at least 160 dropbacks this season is within three percentage points of him this season.

It’s worth noting that the Miami Dolphins have scouted Burrow extensively, right alongside the other handful of top quarterbacks in next year’s draft picture. The NFL’s other winless team, the 0-6 Cincinnati Bengals, sent their top scouting executive (Duke Tobin) to the game matching Burrow and Utah State’s Jordan Love two weeks ago.

I'm sure that every team (needing a QB) is scouting Burrow.

They definitely won't be scouting him as extensively as a team drafting in the top 2 picks who will take QB. But they probably don't need to since they can just ask Brady, who has direct knowledge of the Saints offense and Burrow, how he'd handle our offense.

Can you give me an idea of how many more threads about burrow you plan on posting here this week?

This. He’s executing Joe Brady’s passing offense. Most of which we can assume came from Sean Payton. So every game is proof he can execute.

The problem is we’re not likely going to get near him in the draft.

it's amazing how productive and efficient he's been, in such a short time frame, but if i'm an NFL team, i'd like to see him under center a little more, see how his footwork and timing is then... being in the shotgun virtually every play definitely helps his numbers...

it's not an indictment on the boy, as an LSU fan, i'm very supportive and appreciative of Joe... i'm just saying how i'd approach Burrow and his success/ability if i were a scout...

Ugh, I know the LSU offense has changed this season but there is plenty of footage of Burrow under center from last season.

They’ll be loaded with cap space and picks. The path to being a good team in the NFL is a short one. The hardest part is finding the right QB. If Joe is the right guy then it won’t matter where he is, he’ll be successful and they’ll be able to build a team around him.

Browns went 0-16 a handful of years ago, they still aren’t great but I would say they have built a good roster for Mayfield if he develops and they can improve the Oline. Houston used to be a death toll for QBs drafted there. Now a top team in the league. Same with the saints pre brees. Same with the Bengals pre Palmer. List goes on and on.

I feel we’d be trading up at this point if we want Burrow. I’d give up next years first and a second this year. He could be the guy of the future.

Does it make sense for the Saints to extensively scout someone who is rapidly becoming a top 5 pick?

yeah, and it wasn't all great, like this years tape is going to be... i'm just saying, teams are going to have figure out if Burrow is in fact as good as his stats suggest, or is it the system he's currently in that is responsible for his success... can he be just as successful, now, taking more snaps under center, or is his success going to be dependent on running shotgun at all times... teams try to pick guys that suit what they are already doing, rather than taking a guy and then totally revolving around them, more often than not...

personally, i think he may be able to transition, with time, into being a very good QB, in the NFL... the good thing is he's a film junkie and has a great attitude and work ethic, so he very well could get there sooner rather than later...
