At one point, former Kentucky pass-rusher Josh Allen was picking up steam for the No. 1 overall pick in the upcoming NFL Draft.
He said it multiple times throughout the season, including after Kentucky’s Citrus Bowl victory over Penn State.

While the odds for Allen going No. 1 overall are dropping, most draft analysts believe Allen will be going No. 2 overall to the San Francisco 49ers or No. 3 overall to the New York Jets.
Allen wrapped up his visit to San Francisco yesterday, and he will now take visits to several teams in the upcoming days.
Kentucky DE/OLB Josh Allen is wrapping up his two-day private visit today with the SF 49ers, per source. From SF, Allen will go on to Detroit to visit the Lions, and then later visit the Bengals, Buccaneers, Jaguars, Bills, Giants, Jets and Raiders. Busy schedule.
