Has Josh Allen played his last game for Wyoming?

In the most non-shocking news ever, Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen will declare for the NFL Draft, per Walter Football.

Cowboys head coach Craig Bohl basically said as much a few weeks ago in a post game press conference.

All that is next is the official announcement from Allen himself.

Allen has been considered a first-round pick since last January when his name garnered a lot of buzz last January about being the first quarterback taken off the board.

Others have hopped on the Allen bandwagon citing his measurable and also that Bohl coached quarterback Carson Wentz when at North Dakota State. Wentz is now having one of the best seasons in his second year in the NFL with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Allen’s 2017 year has not gone ad planned with poor stats and also a shoulder injury which has caused him to miss over two games. His bowl status is up in the air as well.

Despite the issues in production, plus the injury Allen is still considered a high-first round pick.

Via Walter Football:

One NFC general manager who could be in the market for a quarterback said they have a firm first-round grade on Allen.

Team sources who are currently at the National Football Scouting meetings in Indianapolis say that Allen may not get out of the top 10 with the way he is being discussed at those meetings.

The thinking is that Allen has the tools to be a great quarterback but the lack of talent around him is part of the issue with his stats being worse than last year.

Allen completed 141 of 251 passes for 1,658 yards, 13 touchdowns six interceptions while completing just 56.2 percent of his passes. He also had 84 carries for 207 yards and five touchdowns.

Despite those numbers, Allen is still considered a first-round in a lot of mock drafts, and other pundits still see him as a high first-round pick.
