Scouting Report: Josh Allen
School: Wyoming Position: QB Class: Junior Height: 6-5 Weight: 216 lbs Projected Draft Round: 1-3
Allen has recently grown into his frame, as he had a very slight build coming into college, but is developing into a premier pro-style quarterback prospect. Experienced under center and with good footwork, his time in a system similar to what he can expect in the NFL should boost his stock. Very efficient release, and puts a lot of velocity on the ball. Good footwork and knows how to shuffle his feet instead of panicking and looking for running lanes. Very nice foot shuffle to climb back into the pocket and get to his optimal release point. Needs to continue to improve his touch on short and medium length routes. Didn’t have great numbers in the past two seasons but that may be more due to the talent he was working with than any comment on his ability.
