Josh Allen enters the 2018 NFL Draft as one of the prospects with the highest ceiling. Allen has struggled with his accuracy throughout his collegiate career, but his strong arm and prototypical size have NFL scouts intrigued. The star signal-caller landed at Wyoming after receiving no Division I offers out of high school, neither the FBS or FCS. He did earn a walk-on offer from San Diego State, but he ultimately turned that down after not being guaranteed playing time.
Allen was linked to the Cleveland Browns from the beginning of the draft season, but as the draft approached there has been some discussion about just how high the signal-caller will land.
During his time at Wyoming, Allen earned Second Team All-Mountain West honors.

As a projected top-five selection, Allen is expected to make anywhere between $30 million as the No. 1 pick to $25 million as the No. 5 pick.
