Here’s a couple things we know about Josh Allen: 1. he’s very tall and 2. he has an absolute CANNON for a right arm. You put those two things together and you have scouts from sea to shining sea creaming their jeans. So, of course, all eyes were on Allen today at the combine during the QB drills and he didn’t disappoint. He was launching missiles 70+ yards in the air and dropping them in a bucket.
He also had the crowd in the palm of his hand.
A 70-yard teardrop by Josh Allen. First crowd eruption of #NFLCombine2018. Wow. 👀

This comes a few weeks after we saw him hitting the crossbar on his knees from the 50-yard line. Seriously, somebody check on Mel Kiper. I don’t think one person can handle that many repeated orgasms.
this is exactly the type of thing that's gonna get him drafted entirely too high, but damn it, it's cool to see Josh Allen hit the crossbar from the 50 on his knees pic.twitter.com/plMnG8oVDM

This combine performance will keep him at the top of mock drafts. The Browns look like they’re out of the Kirk Cousins sweepstakes, so now it’s looking more and more like they’re going QB at #1 or #4. This should work out well.
The top five in my Mock 2.0:
1. Browns: Josh Allen
2. Giants: Saquon Barkley
3. Colts: Bradley Chubb
4. Browns (from Texans): Minkah Fitzpatrick
5. Denver: Sam Darnold
