“I’m going to work as hard as I can,” Burrow said. “When my time comes to be a leader and be a starting quarterback, I’ll do whatever is asked of me.”

Burrow can have the same mechanics as Brady, but that doesn’t mean he’s in store for a Brady-like career, obviously. There have been plenty of quarterbacks with lights-out mechanics and fundamentals that have struggled mightily in the NFL.

Brady had the luxury of going in the sixth round of the NFL Draft back in 2000 allowing him to fly under the radar. Burrow, however, won’t have that luxury as he’ll be thrown into the fire that is the Cincinnati Bengals right away.
