Most of you probably saw this coming, right? While it may seem like the easy answer Josh Allen‘s road to greatness hasn’t always been smooth.
When he was drafted with the seventh overall pick in 2018, Allen was seen as nothing more than a tall body with a big arm. Luckily, Allen surprised many Bills fans with his ability to run the football. In fact, Josh Allen was second in the NFL in rushing yards by a quarterback (behind MVP Lamar Jackson) and scrambled for over 500 yards.
Unfortunately, the big question with Allen is his arm talent. The young signal caller has immense potential and can throw a football farther than almost any other quarterback in the league. His rookie year he amassed 10 touchdown passes while throwing 12 interceptions. He improved on those numbers drastically in 2019 throwing 20 touchdowns to only 9 interceptions (many of which came in the early season).
If Allen continues his improvement, he will likely earn a Pro-Bowl nod and will finally be seen by his skeptics as one of the better quarterbacks in the 2018 draft class. That improvement will be aided by Brian Daboll who is entering his third year as the Bills offensive coordinator. With Allen entering his third year in Daboll’s system, it is likely that the Bills offense will make a major leap this year.
