Draft Scout *Josh Allen News
03/03/18 - 2018 NFL Combine, Saturday: Allen missed a few passes early, especially to his left, an issue that also shows up on his game tapes. At times, Allen is late syncing his million-dollar right arm with his feet, causing some passes to drift. Just as he did at the Senior Bowl last month, Allen improved as he went along. While it is dangerous to read too much into a workout in which quarterbacks are throwing against air, Allen's stellar throwing session was evidence that he could be only a few fundamental tweaks away from becoming a much more accurate passer than is suggested by his career 56.2 completion percentage at Wyoming. While improving accuracy at the highest level is rare, it is not unprecedented. Better fundamentals (and supporting casts) in the NFL have allowed Matt Ryan and Joe Flacco to become quite successful after completing 59.9 and 63.2 percent of their passes at Boston College and Delaware, respectively. Allen's technique could use some fine-tuning. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftscout.com
03/03/18 - 2018 NFL Combine, Saturday: Quarterbacks Josh Rosen and Josh Allen took full advantage when projected No. 1 overall pick Sam Darnold opted not to throw during Saturday's highly anticipated throwing session at the NFL Scouting Combine, delivering dazzling performances that scouts won't soon forget. Allen, a physically-imposing quarterback from Wyoming, was the obvious star of the morning quarterback session, at one point drawing audible oohs and aahhs from a normally silent audience of talent evaluators after throwing a particularly pretty deep ball that traveled at least 70 yards in the air inside Lucas Oil Stadium. While perhaps lacking Allen's best fireball, Rosen was even more impressive when it came to accuracy. The former UCLA Bruins star threw strikes to all levels of the field, including three consecutive picture-perfect vertical routes -- which stood out even more since they came moments after Oklahoma Heisman Trophy winning Baker Mayfield fluttered his three attempts at the same throw. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftscout.com
02/28/18 - 2018 NFL Combine Quotes: Does Josh Allen's 56.2 completion percentage and accuracy questions give you pause about him at all: "I think all of that's too early. I think we're going to find out about why it was 56.2 percent. I think that's what you have to do. I think that's why we're here at the combine, and that's what we'll be doing over the next month or two is to find out why those things are happening and again have the player give us an opportunity to get an understanding from him and for us to keep digging into those things." Allen big, built for your division, huge arm, but accuracy question mark, do you see similarities between him and Kizer because it seems like you already have that guy: "I don't want to compare players, but again, we'll find out more about Josh while being here. But he is, he's a big guy with a big arm, talented and again we'll find out more about him, about why certain things have happened the way they have." - Hue Jackson, Head Coach, Cleveland Browns
01/27/18 - QB Josh Allen answered any questions as to why he will be the first player selected in the 2018 NFL draft from the Senior Bowl with his play in the third quarter. He showed feather-soft touch on perfectly placed touchdown passes to tight ends Tyler Conklin (Central Michigan) and Durham Smythe (Notre Dame) to cap scoring drives, while displaying an equally impressive laser shot on a deep crossing route to Colorado State's Michael Gallup that showed off his arm strength. The 6-foot-5, 237-pound Allen also showed off the spatial awareness and athleticism to dip and duck under pass rushers and still keep his eyes downfield, ultimately completing 9 of 13 passes for 158 yards and two scores after starting off just 2 of 5 for 14 yards in the first half.
01/25/18 - Senior Bowl Thursday: Allen was very up and down on Tuesday and Wednesday, showing flashes of why several are high on his NFL prospects. However, he showed much improved consistency during Thursday's practice, especially during red-zone drills. When the field shrunk and there was less thinking involved, Allen was at his best, throwing corner fades, hitting the seam route and using his plus velocity to fit the ball into tight windows. Allen is a highly polarizing prospect and his performance this week only stoked that fire. He likely didn't convert anyone, but for those who believed in him prior to this week, they will leave Mobile still feeling good about those opinions. And on the flip side, Allen's doubters depart with several of the same concerns about his accuracy and overall future in the NFL. Regardless, even Allen's harshest critics will admit that he performed well during Thursday's practice, arguably the most important day of the week when it comes to evaluation. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
