Josh Allen confident tweets won't impact NFL Draft stock

However, they contained racial slurs and other offensive language, according to Yahoo!

The Buffalo Bills acquired the seventh overall pick from the Tampa Bay Bucaneers and drafted Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen.

Allen becomes the highest draft pick by a UW football player ever.

After being asked "Why are you so white?"


A 2011 posting read: "I hate LeBron", which isn't offensive - although James now plays for the NBA's Cleveland Cavaliers. The Bills traded up with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to get Allen.

The Bills were able to save their second first round pick-number 22 overall-and can still add to their roster tonight.

On Wednesday, there was a report out of Cleveland that the Browns were likely going to pick Allen or Baker Mayfield at the No. 1 spot; they ended up choosing Mayfield.

Nevertheless, Allen combines cannon arm strength with dynamic mobility and drew comparisons to Carson Wentz during the pre-draft phase, testing out as an elite 82nd-percentile SPARQ athlete. UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen, Penn State running back Saquon Barkley, Notre Dame guard Quenton Nelson and North Carolina State defensive end Bradley Chubb round out the top five. A boom-bust project, Allen also offers a Bollerian/Lockerian floor. He had the best statistical season of his college career in 2016 when he threw for 3,203 yards and 28 touchdowns with 15 interceptions. In 2017, Allen was beaten out for first- and second-team All-Mountain West honors by Nick Stevens (Colorado State) and Brett Rypien (Boise State).
