Cons

  • Lacks mobility
  • Needs to improve his throw on the run
  • Tends to throw off his back foot or one foot especially under pressure
  • Inconsistent mechanics
  • Looks to flee the pocket if his first read isn’t there
  • Needs to improve his decision making
  • Struggles on short throws and screen passes

 

Overall

Josh Allen has the talent, body, and tools to be a solid NFL quarterback, but needs to make some improvements before becoming a starter.  At the college level he is very inconsistent. He has flashes of brilliance when he is under pressure and drops a dime on the run, but he also will get a little chancy and make some poor throws or throw into tight coverage. At the moment he is most likely a 2nd or 3rd round pick.
