Why no Josh Allen for a visit?

Recommended Posts

With the Bills having special visits with the other top guys, including visiting Darnold in LA. Are you surprised we haven't brought in Allen?

Does it mean anything? Is he their guy or do they have no interest?

 

It could be they believe he is going number 1 to Browns, they have no interest in him, or he is the guy they covet?

 

What say you?

Not worth a top 12 pick, why bother

I don't think he is who the Bills covet.

 

Face of the matter is the QB we select must be ready to start Day 1. Only QBs who fit that mold are Darnold, Rosen and maybe Mayfield.

Hoping that it's because they don't want him but it could be the biggest smokescreen of all time and it's the guy they've been targeting the whole time.

They set the visit up. He just couldn’t accurately get to the airport

That's what has me worried. Although they didn't see him play more than a couple times I've heard.

Remember you are talking about a QB that the scouts have went and saw a grand total of 1 time during the season. 

 

The linking is media hype because he is a big armed QB and Buffalo apparently needs one for their weather

Good point! One I've ascribed to myself. The others are projects.

Good point. I'm thinking the whole Josh Allen think is big crock.

 

Hopeful we get this right!

Yea but they met with him at senior bowl, combine and did a private workout with him. I’d say he has had just about the same amount of time from the Bills as the others.

And i said scout went a grand total of 1 live game from him. 

 

They were at numerous games from rosen and darnold mayfield and Rudolph. 

 

A grand total of 1 for Allen.

In person, probably 3 times if you include the Senior Bowl. They’ve seen the others probably like 5 or 6 times. I’m sure they’ve poured over the film of all of them. If they never saw him at all, I’d say you can cross him off the list, but they could easily have seen enough in a couple games to think he is or isn’t the guy they want. 

 

You also have to consider that in the case of many of these other QBs, Buffalo isn’t only scouting the QB. For example, USC has Ronald Jones and Burnett, UCLA has Lasley, Oklahoma has a good OLine and pass rusher, OK State has the WRs.

I wouldn't worry about it.  I still think he's one of their top guys.  I can't prove it.  The only thing I can say is what I've been saying in other threads this morning.  Allen FITS the personality that Beane and McD want to represent what the Bills are building.

 

Again, I can't prove anything but it wouldn't shock me one bit that their QB board looks like this:

 

1)  Darnold

2)  Allen

 

Anyone else after Allen would have to have the same personality traits.

Yes, but that is probably partly due to their being few to no other NFL prospects at Wyoming or their opponents.

 

not saying the bills are gonna draft him, but I think he has gotten a pretty good look from the Bills.

This is reasonable and not a bad joke, so thanks for that.  I think we like two of Darnold, Allen, Rosen; not sure which two.  If our evaluation leads them to believe in Allen, I am quite happy taking him.  He has the highest upside.  I prefer Darnold.  If we are able to trade up to #2 and do so before the draft, that would obviously indicate we have two acceptable candidates, whoever they are.

I would switch it and say Rosen, Mayfield and maybe Darnold but that's a nit, overall agree.
