Nobody knows more about the NFL draft than Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay — at least that’s what ESPN wants us to think. The network’s two NFL draft golden boys churn out a ton of pre-draft content, and their most recent gift to the internet is a list of underrated prospects ahead of the 2019 draft.
Kiper picked three, McShay picked three, and UK’s Josh Allen was one of the six who earned a mention:
Josh Allen, OLB, Kentucky
Could we get some pub for the other Josh Allen? With eight sacks and 12.5 total tackles for loss this season, he’s one of college football’s best pass-rushers. At 6-foot-5, 230 pounds, Allen can bend the edge as well as any player in this class. He is going to be a really good 3-4 outside linebacker, and he’s trending toward Day 1 next April. — Kiper [ESPN.com]
Trending toward Day 1? Josh Allen is a Day 1 talent. He’s a first-round pick. Everyone knows that. I thought we all agreed on that?
But it’s still nice to see Allen get even more love, this time from the O.G. NFL draft analyst.
