Shortly after news of the deal broke, the team seemingly confirmed the deal with a GIF.
A native of Ames, IA, Burrow led the Tigers to an undefeated 2019 and its first national championship since 2007.
In 15 games, Burrow threw for 5,671 yards on 402-for-527 passing with 60 touchdowns and six interceptions.
The last time the Bengals drafted with the first overall selection was 2003 when they took USC QB Carson Palmer.
