We all had the luxury of watching Josh Allen every Saturday during the football seasons. The whole country will soon be seeing him on Sundays.
David Carr for NFL.com compares Josh Allen to Von Miller.
“There’s one guy in this class that has Von Miller-like closing qualities”
“Kentucky’s Josh Allen is the best pass rusher in this class because he gets to the quarterback in critical moments, whether it’s during a play on third down, in the red zone or down the stretch in the fourth quarter. The explosive defender compares to Denver’s Von Miller in the way that he can cause a disruption on any given play, and how he can put a game away with a batted down pass or strip. Allen’s a closer-type player that every NFL team is trying to get.”
Maurice Jones-Drew for NFL.com wrote:
“Josh Allen’s game will translate well in the NFL”
“When evaluating pass rushers, it’s all about production and what they actually did at the college level — not their potential in the NFL. That’s why I have to go with Josh Allen. The Kentucky edge rusher logged 17 sacks last season (second in the FBS), which tells me that he has the goods to make the passer consistently uncomfortable.”
Bucky Brooks for NFL.com added:
“Kentucky prospect headlines a deep class of pass rushers”
“The best pass rusher in this draft class is Josh Allen. The Kentucky prospect not only has the physical attributes but he has a long resume of production, including his final season when he tied for sixth nationally with 21.5 tackles for loss and ranked second in the FBS in both sacks (17) and forced fumbles (five). He displays dominant flashes on tape and his rare combination of speed, quickness and power allows him to turn the corner consistently. Plus, he’s a good worker and his game will continue to improve at the next level.”
The NFL Draft begins on April 25th. Kentucky will have a lot of talent in the draft.
