UW's Will Dissly impresses during NFL Scouting Combine workout

  • Quarterbacks At Combine Not Lacking In Confidence

The wild-card in the group could be Wyoming's Josh Allen. No, that doesn't mean he can't play and practice with the same passion as Sam Darnold, Baker Mayfield, Josh Allen or any other signal caller in the draft. "It's hard for me to say they pass up on a franchise quarterback. They're close, they're very close, they've got the right pieces they just need that one guy and quarterback make the difference".

Lastly, Washington State's Luke Falk has people wondering if he has enough arm to make every National Football League throw. His only option was to begin his career at Reedley Community College, 90 miles outside Firebaugh, where he'd have to keep selling his game.

"I love football with all of my heart and soul", Rosen said from the NFL Scouting Combine on Friday. But I think I'm ready as I can be. But I understand that guys who sit for a year and have the opportunity to learn and kind of soak in NFL daily life and understand how to be a professional football player, when they start the next year or the year after that, they step in and they know what they're doing.

Allen's well-documented path to this point was a circuitous one. He lived through a quarterback's version of unrequited love, and the sting is still his fuel.

The latest example was the decision by quarterback Sam Darnold, who could potentially be the first-overall pick in the draft, not to throw passes at the Combine, though he did all the other workouts.

But the truth is that his father's decidedly non-Hollywood approach has created the blueprint Allen has followed during the hectic pre-draft process.

He was the only one of the top four prospects who voiced concerns about throwing at the Combine. For teams hoping to grab one of these QBs, and for teams hoping to see an early run on the position in order to push other talented prospects down the board, Allen and Mayfield appear to be the most volatile variables.

"I think every quarterback in this draft wants to be that guy, " he said.

There's little debate that Mayfield has an edge to him. "I'm not a big rah-rah guys".


Mayfield has the most to gain or lose here. There's no reason that anyone on the coaching staff from previous year should still be there. Or perhaps it's simply a propensity for stiff-arming distraction.

Besides, he insists, none of that matters now. "But again, as you just mentioned, it's something we have to find out about".

Darnold was measured at 6-foot-33/8 and weighed in at 221 pounds. And his physical feats have become the stuff of Bunyanesque legend.

Allen will train in California for another week and a half before returning to Laramie to prepare for Wyoming's Pro Day on March 23.

Allen stood out on Saturday; in the words of NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock, who broadcast the entire workout live, Allen "put on a show". It's a responsibility he's embracing. Rosen says his accuracy and processing speed is what "absolutely" makes him the best player - not just quarterback - in this year's draft. The Giants were scheduled to meet Friday night with Darnold, Rosen and Allen.

But the larger questions surrounding Allen pertain to his accuracy. It was not only the deep balls where Allen felt comfortable, but he was consistently hitting targets in the short and intermediate areas as well.

"I don't think they brought any of their offensive coaches here", Goedert said. And Allen's arm. And just about every move he makes.

Two for Josh Allen.
