Josh Allen on ESPN2

Talking about his final year at Kentucky making the transition to “being a man.” Mentioned now having responsibilities and wanting to give his wife and baby their “best life.”

Seems like a good, humble kid. Would not be at all displeased if he ends up wearing The Blue.
My favorite player in the draft

Allen or White

Do what it takes to get one of them

strikes me as a very safe pick. He is a guy who can cover a little bit off the edge, can play against the run and be a dangerous speed rusher even if his power moves lack which Sy has alluded to being a concern.

He just strikes me as a guy even if he doesn’t become an elite pass rusher would still be a highly productive one and a guy you could have on your defense the next decade.

If they don't trade out

I think he'll be a Jet. Or Bosa. Really a toss up between them
Jets really are the key to the draft

If they trade out, or choose Oliver, odds go up of Allen being there for us.

The Oliver stuff seems pretty real. They may well go for him. But I think they desperately want to get into the 2nd round to draft a center. That is a massive massive hole we have

Heard him and Oliver inerviewed on radio last night with Dominik (the ex-Bucs GM). You could tell from the interview that Allen was the more mature player and person. Oliver did not seem to care about skipping bowl game to get a head start on draft prep and is already looking forward to the break between end of rookie season and mini-camp the following year. Allen was extremely humble and talked about needing to mature physically and mentally and that is why he stayed at Kentucky this year.
I like Allen

but I'm concerned he's a one trick pony speed rusher. Is he strong enough to beat NFL linemen and not just try to run around them? I'll defer to the FO and I'd be happy to land him at 6, but he's not nearly as clean to Q or Bosa IMO.
