Josh Allen, QB, Wyoming

This Wyoming product with the big arm is one of the most compelling players in the 2018 draft.

Josh Allen started at junior college, then sent begging emails to Division I programs hoping they’d give him a shot. Wyoming took the bait and brought him aboard, but Allen broke his collarbone in his first year. In Year 2, he proved himself with a 28-touchdown, 15-interception season that had draft analysts foaming at the mouth about his prospects for the following year’s draft.

His 2017 season left something to be desired as his production dipped a bit to just 16 touchdowns; his yardage dropping by nearly 1,400 yards. But he also limited himself to just six interceptions, and he threw for eight touchdowns and zero interceptions in his final four games – all wins.

His college accuracy was suspect at just 56 percent, but his 6-foot-5, 230-pound frame and 80-yard arm give him physical traits few quarterbacks have. Whichever team believes in Allen will surely believe they are getting a steal.
