Josh Allen, QB, Wyoming
We knew Allen had a rocket arm. He showed that at his pro day. But sometimes seeing something that special in person can help drive the point home.
When you’re dropping 75-yard dimes, even at altitude, that’s going to make NFL teams stand up and take notice.
Allen appeared to have worked on his footwork as well, something my evaluators have pointed to as a deficiency for the Wyoming star. He showed better touch and accuracy than you see on film and NFL teams will have to determine why they think that didn’t show up more consistently in games.
But the pro day was all about proof of concept with his talent. If teams had questions, he gave answers. He’s clearly the most physically gifted arm in the draft and for someone who needed a ‘Wow’ performance, Allen gave one.
