LSU quarterback Joe Burrow is widely expected to be taken by the Cincinnati Bengals with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft after his Heisman-winning campaign this past season.

Well, should Burrow land in Cincinnati, he'll grow accustomed to squaring off against the likes of the Steelers, Browns and Ravens. One Steelers linebacker is already fantasizing over the idea of sacking Burrow in 2020. Vince Williams took to Twitter to (prematurely) welcome the LSU star to the AFC North, announcing that it's "gonna be cool sacking Joe next year."

Williams clearly isn't too worried about having to stop the Bengals next year, even if Burrow is under center.

Still, this is a bit of a bold statement for Williams after the veteran only had 2.5 sacks in 2019. Burrow is elusive and given he does end up in Cincinnati, he won't be all that easy to take down.

Burrow being hailed as the next great quarterback will provide defenders with plenty of motivation to deliver a big hit to welcome him to the NFL. Williams is just the first player to voice his desire to do so.
