4-16: Josh Allen has a Pre-Draft Visit with the Bills

Recommended Posts

That whole thread about us not bringing Allen in for a pre-draft visit just became obsolete.

 

I like all of the top 5 QBs, so I’m glad they are giving him a closer look.

The guy is highly rated by many teams and pundits the Bills are doing the right thing by bringing him in and taking a better look.

 

I kind of feel you could write the above sentence with ________  replacing Allen as the name of the QB.  I think most people just grab for the easy sound bite and rehash it.

If they feel like they can fix his footwork and accuracy than he could be the best QB from this draft from a pure passing standpoint. I feel like the hardest thing to fix with a QB is accuracy and touch on your passes. He will probably excel in breaking down defense's, calling audibles and calling out blitzes. He is tall, mobile and smart. Cam Newton had accuracy issues and improved them enough to become a good QB. The Bean is in a position to change the culture of losing and not having a QB to believe in with one good pick.

I really hope we don’t trade up for him but if he’s the guy, I’ll be really excited to see what he can do and hope and pray we build the OL so he doesn’t have to be In postion to make bad decisions very often.  I think he’ll bust before he becomes a very good QB but if he does, we’ll all be very excited and he’ll soon be the apple of our eye.  Hopefully he has the heart and desire to become great while we surround him with the proper pieces to succeed

As I said in another thread, no matter who they bring in, we will have more talent in the qb room than we've had in the last 18 years.

Not sure what to make of this. It is pretty late in the game and you would have to think the Bills already have the order of their quarterbacks pretty much set. We are a week and a half away. If he was a priority target at the most important position, you would think that you would want him in earlier to get a better judgment on him. At the same time, Allen may not have been able to meet with the Bills due to scheduling conflicts. Plus, it was pointed out to me today that Allen had met with the Bills for a workout in March. I guess we will just have to wait until the 26th.

They say he can throw a ball so fast that it breaks the sound barrier and farts louder than thunder and shoots bolts of lightning from his arse.

If William Wallace were here he'd agree with you.

Why are people hating so many QB prospects in what is supposed to be the greatest QB class of any draft ever??

He fits Beane's prototype from a physical perspective. 

I think he fits most GMs' prototype from a physical perspective.

Everybody else's QB will be better than ours!!!!

 

In seriousness, if we can't get a top QB from this draft, I will feel like a kid at the prom with no date and no one to dance with.

Exactly this....  If Beane and McDermott find that Allen is their guy, go for it.  I'll just be happy that they get one of them and they go all in on it. 

 

I've said this before and I'll say it again, worse case scenario they select a QB and he is a bum.  Everyone gets fired in 2 - 3 years and we're back to square 1.  I'll still be a Bills fan...

It's good that the Bills are doing their due diligence, but I don't see Allen as a match to the descriptions Beane has given or a fit to the plan they have been executing since McD got here.

No see we have no idea how teams rate him. The media is all over him sure, but saying hes rated highly by teams is conjecture.

 

Moreover, are we really using the Wonderlic as measuring stick?

No doubts in my mind that Darnold and Allen are their top two prospects.  I can't prove it, but I believe it based on what they've said, their history with QBs and what they are trying to build.

I love how the top teams in the draft are having this kid in for a visit yet the QB experts here are against him.

 

Lots of unemployed Scouts/GM’s here.

Exactly how I would feel if they draft him and did it by moving up to get him. I think I would compare it to the EJ draft, imagine instead of moving back and drafting EJ/Kiko they moved up to top 5 to just take EJ. Yuk

 

Coming out of college with the same hype and the same issues. He is a big guy that looks like a QB maybe he can get better or maybe he will be a career backup and then traded away. I would rather have a QB that does not have accuracy issues.

He won't succeed in buffalo. Here's why. AJ McCaron and Nate Peterman. They are going to stink up the field. The bills just traded all of those picks to get a QB who is on the bench. How long could that possibly last? By the bye week fans will be going nuts demanding they play the kid. He's not ready

 Not that he is the most accurate passer ever but for comparison, Newton competed 66% of his passes at 10 yards/ attempt in the SEC.  

 

We all need to pretend like we are qb experts but I see a lot more excuses for Allen than actual success.  The Bills aren’t the team to be taking risks on QBs imo.
