Joe Burrow's 2019 season is the best PFF College has ever seen

“The LSU star’s transcendent season has likely vaulted him to the top of draft boards across the league.” – NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport after talking with NFL front office personnel

Joe Burrow went from a transfer quarterback who got beat out for the starting job at Ohio State to a national champion in just a year and a half. He led LSU through a gauntlet of a schedule that featured five top-10 teams and led them to an undefeated 13-0 record and the No. 1 seed in the College Football Playoff.

After hanging 63 on Oklahoma in their CFP semifinal blowout win that he said was “expected,” Burrow and LSU went up against their seventh top-10 team of their 15-game season in the national title game versus the reigning national champion Clemson Tigers Monday night and handed them their first loss in 29 games. This all was expected to happen now, but it definitely was not expected to happen five months ago. The supporting cast Burrow had at his disposal has been great, there’s no debate there – his top two wide receivers were among the 15 best in PFF receiving grade and the coverage unit contains a potential top 10 pick in this draft class as well as the most valuable non-quarterback in college football in PFF’s wins above average metric. Not to mention, the scheme and fit brought in by Joe Brady couldn’t be more perfect.
