His tape was incredible to watch and I didn't see the accuracy issues people were talking about.

I don’t want him starting until we get better pieces for him. We have no proven targets outside of KB, who will draw double teams.

90% of NFL throws come within 20 air yards. Josh Allen is bad under 20 yards. He's even worse within 10 yards where 64% of NFL throws take place. 

Bust of epic proportions.

I think at worst you have a Jameis-level starter, at best you have a Pro-Bowler.  I'm putting the chips in on him :D

I think his floor is well-below Jameis. His floor is more like Jake Locker

This is super important to me. Right now...I think the Bills would hurt him more than help him if they played him.

Locker would be my floor as well. He's not an unreasonable comparison

I agree, unless he has an incredible pre season and forces the coaching staff’s hand, he has to sit to start the season.

I think he'll be a career tease, he may have a few big games against teams he's supposed to beat but never win against upper crust defenses

I think his floor is even lower than that.

No I don't.  IIRC, I had Josh Allen as my #6 quarterback in this year's draft and he has gone to a team with little offensive talent aside from Shady McCoy.  I think he will be a bust, full stop. 

 

That being said, I understand why Buffalo took him ahead of Josh Rosen.  Buffalo is not an easy town to throw a football in thanks to the winds.  Buffalo needed a quarterback who had that kind of howitzer arm and that just isn't Josh Rosen.

Hack never looked the part to me. At least with Allen, I have seen the potential. I do agree with @MSURacerDT55 that he could be a bit of a tease throughout his career though, and I say that as a pretty big fan of Allen overall. I don't think he'll just never play like Hack...that is too low of a floor to me. Locker makes sense, but I've also used Josh Freeman (without the other issues) as comparable floor, which I think is fair. I honestly just don't think it's possible to be a bottom 10 pick and bottom out as badly as Hack has in his career if only because Allen will at some point get into a huddle in a real game lol

Obviously Allen will play due to his draft position but in a worst case scenario I could easily see him being unplayable shortly after.

I think his ceiling is just above Derek Anderson. His floor is just below Derek anderson :S
