The first overall pick of the 2020 NFL Draft belongs to the Cincinnati Bengals and it's likely remaining that way, as the AFC North club has no intention of trading away the top selection, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Cincinnati finished the regular season 2-14, acquiring the No. 1 selection for the first time since 2003.

The quarterback position is considered the Bengals' top priority, and LSU's Heisman Trophy winner Joe Burrow is the favorite to go first overall.

Bengals quarterbacks coach Alex Van Pelt praised Burrow early this week, admitting the pivot "checks off a lot of boxes" as a prospect.

Cincinnati relied on Andy Dalton and Ryan Finley under center throughout the 2019 campaign. Dalton has been their Week 1 starter since 2011.
