The Denver Broncos remain on the hunt for their quarterback of the future and have their eye on an arm up north in Josh Allen of Wyoming.
While free agent signing Case Keenum is expected to carry the load short-term, long-term, there are still questions of who will be the ‘franchise quarterback.’
Throwing for numerous scouts from across the country. Allen’s pro day was described as ‘dazzling,’ or ‘what we expected,’ depending on who you speak too. Many eyes were on the strong-armed quarterback who threw for 5,066 yards in college at Wyoming.
Allen was expected to be taken in the top five of the NFL Draft even before the pro day and after his day in Laramie, most have him pegged as a lock for a top three selection. His arm-strength being the top reason why, but also his smarts for the game, even amid criticism of his 56% completion mark for his college career.
