Mountain West Football Top 50: No. 2, Wyoming QB Josh Allen
Cowboys quarterback Josh Allen is next in our countdown of the Mountain West’s 50 best football players.
Will Allen play like a future NFL star?
Our list is now at No. 2 with Wyoming Cowboys quarterback Josh Allen at this spot, and that this point not hard to guess who the top player is.
Allen makes it here because of what he did last year for the Cowboys. He took the to the Mountain West championship game and had wins over San Diego State and Boise State in the regular season.
Allen has a ton of potential and draft experts last year thought he could go in the first round, and it is possible he could go No. 1 overall in the 2018 NFL Draft.
The positives of Allen are that he has a huge arm and size by standing at 6-foot-5 and he is a gambler. However, him taking risks did not always pay off last year because too many times Allen would force a throw and it would not go his way.
He did have 3,203 yards and led the Mountain West in passing touchdowns with 28, but he also completed only 56 percent of his passes. Allen has a ton of talent but to be truly elite needs to work on a few things.
