Top NFL Draft prospect hurls his entire college team under the bus

What was he thinking?

Wyoming Cowboys quarterback Josh Allen has some learning to do when it comes to optics.

One of the presumed top NFL Draft prospects for this year, Allen is a polarizing talent, as his numbers don't exactly justify him being selected in the top portion of the first-round.

While people talk about him being a winner, Allen actually only went 16-11 with the Cowboys.

However, those who can't use his numbers or winning record to quantify why he's so special believe they have an excuse for that data being corrupt. His teammates, you see, just weren't that good.

Oh, and Josh Allen agrees with that sentiment.

"I went back and got better as a person and a player. I lost a running back, receiver, tight end, and a center all to the NFL. We played lots of young guys. It was different. I had to put everyone on my back and say we can do this," he told 92.3 The Fan.


Maybe Allen was just attempting to put last season in perspective, but with all the pros he mentioned he had on the team before last season, he still only completed 56 percent of his passes. Furthermore, he only led the Cowboys to an 8-6 record in 2016 with all of those NFL weapons.

Maybe, just maybe, those pros made him more than he made them pros.
