Buffalo Bills selected Josh Allen out of Wyoming in the 2018 NFL draft with the seventh pick. Josh is still young and developing. However, he saw some promise during this past season that may play out well in the near future. Injuries did plague Allen throughout the year. When healthy he proved he can perform well. Josh was one of the better quarterbacks coming out of college and he sure did live up to the hype.
2018 Rookie Season:
Limited to 12 games this season, Josh had 10 passing touchdowns and 8 rushing. Granted he throw 12 interceptions, obviously that needs to be worked on. I anticipate with more time, practice and better health, that INT stat will improve. Firstly, Allen didn’t have much of supporting cast to throw to. Zay Jones, a second year player out of East Carolina, came on strong towards the end of the season. He seemed to be a good target for garnering receptions. With some help Buffalo can contend for years to come. Secondly, with more offensive fire power type of additions, Josh may have a bright future. Head Coach Sean Mcdermott is a smart head coach. He has to focus on signing key players in the off season after this disappointing year.
Future is mighty bright:
A full season of Josh playing all 16 games is a must if the Bills are looking to get back to the playoffs. If LeSean McCoy sticks around ( rumors are that he will be back for 2019) that gives Josh a comfort zone. Having a veteran running back to carry some of the workload will be key for him. Upgrades at the wide out position is a must. The Defense is one of the best in the NFL. Bills fans have a bright future with Allen, as long as key pieces of the puzzle get added.
