The Cincinnati Bengals used the No. 1 overall pick in the 2020 NFL draft on former LSU quarterback Joe Burrow.

He showed why over the first 10 games of the 2020 season as he was on pace to break several rookie records. Unfortunately, he suffered a devastating knee injury, tearing his ACL, MCL and other structural damage.

His 2020 season came to an abrupt end, but the Heisman Trophy winner will be ready to go for the 2021 season. One of his wide receivers, Tyler Boyd, thinks Burrow will lead the team to a title in no time.

"Nothing average about Joe (Burrow). He's going to lead us to the Promised Land," Boyd says. "Joe looks great. He looks like he's ready to play a game right now. I'm not worried about Joe. He makes magic when his number's called.

Here's more via Bengals.com:

"It's like, 'How do you stop these guys?' I'm pretty sure there are guys already looking across the league and figuring out what guys got and I know we're one of the teams that guys are going to worry about."

Boyd is one of the full compliment of weapons at Burrow's disposal for the upcoming season. While A.J. Green left in free agency to play for the Arizona Cardinals, the Bengals quickly filled in his absence.

The team drafted former LSU star Ja'Marr Chase with the No. 5 pick in the 2021 NFL draft.

Boyd, Chase and second-year wideout Tee Higgins should be one of the team's best wide receiver trios.
