2018 NFL Draft Scouting Report: QB Josh Allen

Height: 6’5”

Weight: 237 lbs.

Age: 21

School: Wyoming


40-yard dash: 4.75 sec.

Vertical: 33.5”

Broad: 119.0”

Bench: DNP

3-cone: 6.90 sec.



All-time great arm strength and velocity. Able to make throws deep outside the numbers with ease. Can throw with touch at all levels of the field. Wins from the pocket. Knows the ins and outs of a pro-style offense. Goes through progressions. Prototypical size. Will stare down the barrel to make a throw. Extremely accurate when his mechanics are in synch. Great mobility. Makes plays in and out of the pocket when things break down. Tough to bring down as a scrambler and runner. Combination of arm talent, athleticism, and confidence allows him to make throws on the run with outstanding ball placement. Strong leader. Played his best in the bowl game with everyone watching.



Inconsistent mechanics. Footwork needs improvement. Arm talent can sometimes cause him to make a throw that he shouldn’t. Receivers will need to adjust to his fastball. Could be more patient and have a better pre-play plan. Didn’t play great against Power 5 competition.

It’s not an exaggeration to say Josh Allen could have the strongest arm in football history, but he’s also intelligent, mobile, and has shown enough to be confident about his accuracy at the next level when he’s surrounded by NFL talent. Sitting would probably benefit him, but Allen might be able to make an immediate impact based on his unteachable skillset.
