Joe Burrow Player Overview

What You Need To Know:

  • After an average 2018, Burrow stunned the nation by throwing for a record 60 TDs last year.
  • Playing on a stacked offense helped, but Burrow’s accuracy, timing and anticipation looked elite.
  • A.J. Green, Tyler Boyd and Tee Higgins give Burrow a strong trio of WRs to work with.


Late bloomer

Burrow began his college career at Ohio State. He played behind dual-threat QB J.T. Barrett for 2 seasons before transferring to LSU.

Earning the starting nod in 2018, Burrow posted unspectacular totals. He completed under 58% of his passes, averaged only 7.6 yards per attempt and hit 300 yards just once all year.

On the field, WRs Justin Jefferson (a 2021 1st-rounder) and Ja’Marr Chase (a likely 2021 first-rounder) consistently delivered. Transfer TE Thaddeus Moss also arrived.Mix in versatile RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire, and Burrow was clearly poised for success.

Greatest-of-all-time level success.

Facing a schedule that included 7 top-10 opponents, Burrow fired off the most passing TDs in NCAA history (60). His 5,671 yards were the 3rd most all-time. He really showed up when it counted, going for 349-4 vs. Georgia (SEC Championship), 493-7 vs. Oklahoma (semifinals) and 463-5 vs. Clemson (National Championship).

Burrow went without an INT in his last 5 games. On the year, LSU led the nation in points per game (48.4).

Advanced numbers from Pro Football Focus further highlight Burrow's stunning season. His adjusted completion rate of 81.9% led all D-1 qualifiers. He also led that group in deep passing yards (1,711) and deep pas…
