Josh Allen worked out in front of a lot of scouts from quarterback-needy teams. Besides the Browns’ large contingent, which included owner Jimmy Haslam, Giants head coach Pat Shurmur, Jets General Manager Mike Maccagnan, Seahawks General Manager John Schneider and Broncos senior adviser Gary Kubiak also made their way to Wyoming.
Everyone knows Allen has a strong arm, and he displayed that again at the end of the workout with several 60-plus-yard throws. But scouts wanted to see him show touch and accuracy.
They’re not all the same, but they do some things that are somewhat interchangeable.If you aren’t a hard-core Rockies fan, you probably didn’t notice.They didn’t wait around to find out.After a back-and-forth battle leading into the final minutes, eventually took over the game on both ends of the floor.A lot of them seem to think they understand CTE and the dangers, but I wonder if they really do.
The crazy part here is that Schefter wasn’t joking. This wasn’t some gag.
Playing devil’s advocate here for a second, when you consider that Washington did pretty well for itself drafting two quarterbacks in 2012, one could convince oneself that this is a legitimately viable solution to Cleveland’s perpetual dearth of talent at the quarterback position.
The Steelers wait on linebacker. Pittsburgh has drafted a linebacker in the first round in four of the last five drafts, including Jarvis Jones (2013), Ryan Shazier (2014), Bud Durpee (2015) and T.J. Watt (2017). Then again, the position remains the focal point of the Steelers’ defense.
Stanford safety Justin Reid is a popular second-round pick across several mock drafts, and he would be a good fit for Pittsburgh. As for running back, this would be a good time for the Steelers to draft Rashaad Penny, an all-around college star back who finished with 2,974 all-purpose yards at San Diego State last season. That’s 645 more all-purpose yards than Penn State’s Saquon Barkley.
