Josh Allen: “I plan to improve every day”

AP

Josh Allen got through the bumps of the draft process, and then met a role model.

Now it’s on him to do the thing the Bills traded up in the first round for him to do.

Allen said after his first rookie minicamp in the NFL that he knows there are adjustments he’s going to have to make, but he’s confident he can handle them.

“I’m going out there and I’m going to play football how I know to play football,” he said, via the Buffalo News. “I’m still working on a lot of things. Coach [Brian] Daboll’s going to help me out. Through this whole draft process, I felt like I’ve made a lot of strides. . . . As we progress through this rookie minicamp, and through the rookie developmental period, I plan to improve every day.”

He caught the eye of some of his new teammates, impressing his fellow rookies with his command of the huddle.

“The biggest thing is you can tell how a quarterback’s going to act in the fourth quarter by the way he treats his huddle,” fifth-round guard Wyatt Teller said. “He was very respectful, but he was very stern. He complimented us if we had a good break and if we made the play right, but he had great huddle presence. If someone’s out of place or if someone’s like leaning in too far, he’s like, ‘Hey, hey, hey. Work on the huddle, fix the huddle.’

“You can kind of tell that he’s taking it serious. He’s more than an arm, obviously. He’s a smart kid, he works hard.”

He’s going to have to, as the Bills have invested a lot in him being the kind of face-of-the-franchise player they lacked.

  1. No need for the Bills to rush Allen this year. It’s going to take a while to get his footwork corrected so that it becomes second nature, especially with an OLine that looks to be less proficient than last years. So what if they take a step back this year? Next year the salary cap problems of the previous regimes will be a thing of the past. The Bills will still have their full complement of 2019 draft picks to help fill some more of the holes unaddressed this year.

  2. Will be the best QB in this draft. Bills got lucky. Good for them. My favorite AFC team now.

    LOL @ the Browns being the Browns yet again. Mayfield will bust. Browns just don’t know how to get out of their own way. Everything is handed to them on a platter and they always make the wrong pick. It is like they are doing it on purpose at this point.

  3. Odds are against him. College QB’s with his accuracy do not do well in the NFL and none with similar college numbers turned it around once the got to this level.

  4. Darin Gantt… Actually the Bills didn’t invest a whole lot into getting Allen. a 1st & 2 2nd’s isn’t a whole lot when you consider most teams give up an extra 1st or several high picks to move up and get their QB.
    RGIII… 3 1st round picks & 1 2nd.
    Mahomes… 2 1st’s & a 3rd.

    Lol dang auto correct
    Looks like Tarzan…plays like Jane

    Unlike Rosen who looks like Jane and plays like Cheeta. Unless he gets another concussion then he just won’t play.

  6. If the EJ Manuel playbook is any indicator, he will be rushed onto the field and evaluated to be a bust if he doesn’t go to the sb this year – lol

  7. I can’t help but like the Bills, they remind me somewhat of my team. For that reason alone I hope he works out for them.

  8. The good news: Josh Allen plans to improve every day!
    The bad news: At that rate he’ll be like 137 years old before he’s any good…

    HaHa. Josh Rosen is 10X the QB Prospect Allen is, Rosen was regarded as the best most polished NFL Ready QB to come out since Andrew Luck, Rosen will be a much pro QB than Allen. Allen is this years Blaine Gabbert, very similar QB prospects. Rosen will be the best QB from this draft class.

    Thats why he was the 4th QB picked….SMH

  12. I have a great feeling about him. I think he is going to surprise a lot of people. My nephew has watched him play and said you really needed to see his games to make a true judgment and he likes him a lot too. I think he has a year to learn and with Kelly helping him, he’s in a good position. His team was bad so can he really be blamed too when THEY didn’t catch the ball? I’m not getting brought down. I’m giving him a real chance. I’m on top of the world right now w life and the bills are gonna be part of this great future ahead. Wait and you’ll see….

  13. I would be shocked if he beats out McCarron who was a better college QB than Allen.
