Former LSU Tigers quarterback Joe Burrow recently put together one of the best passing seasons college football has ever seen. Rightfully, he was rewarded with the Heisman Trophy, the first overall pick in the NFL Draft and even led his team to a National Championship win.

Now a member of the Cincinnati Bengals, Burrow has high expectations for a rookie. And even though he hasn't played a single down in the NFL yet, Burrow is much older than you might expect a first-round pick to be. In fact, he'll be turning 24 years old on Dec. 10.

With that in mind, here are five players that are surprisingly younger than the reigning Heisman Trophy winner.
