MFST’s No.1 QB in the 2018 NFL Draft has declared: Josh Allen
Our No.1 QB and 5th overall prospect in the 2018 NFL Draft has officially declared for the Draft.
Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen has played his final collegiate game, a 37-14 win over Central Michigan in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl. In that game Denver Broncos president of football operations John Elway was in attendance and Allen finished 11-of-19 for 154 yards with 3 touchdowns and no interceptions.
Allen’s decision to play Friday went against the current trend of top prospects skipping bowl games to begin preparing for the draft. He said he felt like he “owed” it to head coach Craig Bohl and quarterbacks coach Brent Vigen to play.
“Coming all the way from one scholarship offer, you know, Coach Bohl and Coach Vigen, they believed in me when I came out of junior college,” Allen said. “I felt like I owed them at least one more game here. Football’s a part of me. If I’m not playing, then I’m not me. So I’ve gotta be on the field at all the times, because I love this team, I love this game and I love the Cowboys.”
Bohl was also quick to praise Allen for playing in the bowl game.
“In today’s world where players are making all kinds of decisions about bowl games, Josh chose to play, and I applaud him for that,” Bohl said. “If there’s any NFL team looking for a player out there, you’re never going to find a bigger competitor and a better leader than him.”
Some may look at Allen’s numbers this season and not see a highly rated quarterback prospect, but he had little help from the Wyoming offense. The Cowboys offensive line was bad and their skill position players were well below the norm in college football.
Put on the tape and see the kind of throws he can make and that will prove our point as to why he is our No.1 QB in the draft.https://www.myfantasysportstalk.com/mfsts-no-1-qb-in-the-2018-nfl-draft-has-declared-josh-allen/https://i1.wp.com/www.myfantasysportstalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/josh-allen-wyoming-quarterback-draft.jpg?fit=770%2C433&ssl=1https://i1.wp.com/www.myfantasysportstalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/josh-allen-wyoming-quarterback-draft.jpg?resize=150%2C150&ssl=1NCAAFNFLNFL DraftRecent PostsCollege Football,Josh Allen,NFL,NFL Draft,Wyoming CowboysOur No.1 QB and 5th overall prospect in the 2018 NFL Draft has officially declared for the Draft.
