Josh's passing stats for 2019 aren't as bad as many people think.

Then you have Jeff George or Cutler, with all the passing talent in the world. I could not bear to have them as my QB. 

Good examples of the difference between quarterbacks and passers.

We're arguing with people who would have demanded Eli Manning be cut before he beat Brady in two Super Bowls.

Come on, lets be serious here.  Stats matter and go a pretty long way in assessing your capability.  Fromm fell to us in the 5th.  If his stats last year mirrored his previous two years at Georgia, he goes day one.  His fall off in stats is what made scouts begin to question his ability.


Case Keenum broke NCAA passing records and still went undrafted. 
 

Fromm fell to us because he has an inferior NFL arm.
 

Ability and projectable NFL traits matter more than just blindly looking at stats.

Speaking as someone who watched a ton of June Jones QBs come and go I can safely say you have no idea what you’re talking about.

Bryce Petty likes CFB stats. 

So does Colt Brennan.

Jake Fromm was never considered a day one prospect. Ever. As per the bold text, this defies all scouting logic.

I laugh because as I explained in my answer “intangibles” and other non passing aspects are valued more than other attributes, Beane implies this in your posted article, and yet you ask the question why would they trade up and spend so much on a project. And then you see fit to post yet more stats to say Allen sucks. On one hand you appreciate attributes unrelated to passing the ball and on the other you seem to dismiss them as not important. 
 

As I said, there’s a difference between being a quarterback and being a passer. We will know soon enough about Josh Allen. In the meantime, while it may be amusing, it’s meaningless to project his career path based on what other QBs have done in their first two years. But his trajectory since his senior year in high school has done nothing but rise. There’s reason to believe that will continue based on his history as he acquires more experience at the position. 
 

 

What i'm trying to say is why put so much solely on intangibles and physical traits?  Why take a risk that big when the main body of his work, his actual production on the field, is so low?  Why not look for the "it" factor, but also have stats to back it up?

 That's just untrue.  In his draft day thread, (i believe) I posted many, many, articles predicting him to go first day, maybe first overall, prior to right before his last season started.

Prior to his last season starting? That explains it. NFL scouts don’t start the process in earnest until August and won’t have a preliminary book on most prospects until the Senior Bowl at the earliest. Even later for juniors who declare, like Fromm, who won’t be issued a preliminary grade until after the combine. 

 

I’m sure there was no shortage of talking head pundits, draftniks, and other wannabe scouts who took everything Fromm did his first two years and made projections based on that last summer, but that’s just not real world, brass tacks talent evaluation.

I can find dozens with better college stats who never made it to the NFL, let alone became a top seven pick, let alone started 27 of their first 28 games in the NFL. All with precious little refined experience at the position to boot. 

Good stats in college don’t necessarily translate to NFL success, but bad college stats almost always translate to lack of NFL success.

Let’s not act like Craig Bohl is some QB producing machine or the his schools are QB factories. And again, Wentz’s relative experience exceeded that of Allen’s. 

With all due respect, how does this make any sense?  The guy produced two top 10 qb picks in 5 years at Wyoming and North Dakota State!!! That is the ultimate sign of great coaching.  Maybe Allen’s college coaching isn’t this pee wee football coaching you thought.

While great college stats predict nothing in the nfl, it is extremely rare to find guys who didn’t dominant becoming greatplayers in the NFL.  Allen was rarely dominant in the MWC.  He has struggled to maintain a dominant game in the pros so far.  That’s what worries me long term.  I think he will be a guy we will always debate because he will always lack consistency.  He has never done it on any level, even a lower tier D 1 conference and now he is going to do it in the NFL?  That seems like a huge bet to make.  
 

luckily, they have built a really strong team around him and he doesn’t really have to win games now.

I do think it is an interesting question. If you weighed where they played (you deserve more credit for better stats in the SEC than the MWC), in the last 10 years (maybe even longer), has there been a 1st round qb with a less impressive college resume than Allen?  Gabbert was up there and he sucks.  But I struggle to think of many more.

You and the Chiefs' fan can cogitate on that interesting question. The only thing that matters is how Allen develops.

Craig Bohl, QB whisperer. Say it with me! :lol:

 

Craig Bohl has never been known as an some offensive minded savant . Indeed, his bio indicates strong experience on the D side; both as a player and coach. The ONLY reason he “produced” Wentz and Allen is because they both possess freakish physical traits that couldn’t be ignored by the NFL scouts.

The point is college stats aren’t a reliable indicator of NFL success, regardless. But they come in handy when pushing an agenda.

Allen's 2 years under his belt with a suspect offense if really going to help him this year.  Bills should have a good running game and a good receiver corps for the first time in years. I don't think any QB would have had significantly better stats for Bills than Allen did.  This team just had to many offensive weaknesses.  

I really think the 2020 Bills offense isn't even going to resemble the last 2 years.

       In 16 games Josh  completed 271 passes in 461 attempts for a 58.8%.  If he had 2 more completions per game, that would give him 303 completions for a 64.3% average, which is in the range of most NFL quarterbacks.  Yes, there are some QB's with higher completion averages.  For example,  Drew Brees  led the NFL with a 74.3 completion average, but his completion yardage was 2,979 yards, less than Josh's 3089 yards. It looks like Brees and a few other QB's are throwing a few more screen passes or dump off passes than Josh threw.  Plus you have to figure in drops.  All in all, I'm not worried at all about Josh"s accuracy issue,  In my humble opinion, it's not an issue.

 

The only think I see is that he needs to improve on the deep ball.
