Bills Did Due Dilligence and More They Saw Allen More They Liked
Buffalo Bills execs spent more than a year evaluating Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen before trading up to get him with the seventh pick in the draft.
They went through a challenging plane ride over the Rocky Mountains to land in Laramie for workouts. The created their own pass completion evaluation format because of the nature of the Cowboys offense last year, without a legitimate running back.
They watched him in person. They watched him in film.
And the more they watched him the more they liked. To heck with the completion percentage. They looked at game situations.
The only thing they found they felt needed work was Allen's foot work. When he threw a bad pass, they said, the biggest problem was how he placed his feet. They knew that could be alleviated.
