Burrow’s been everything you could hope for out of a No. 1 overall pick. After a rough rookie season that saw him tear his ACL, Burrow and the Bengals have won the AFC North each of the last two seasons, reached Super Bowl 56 two years ago and made a second straight AFC Championship Game appearance last year. Burrow won Comeback Player of the Year in 2021, and was named a Pro Bowler in 2022.
