The NFL Draft is in full swing, and Josh Allen is now officially a member of the greatest football league there is.
On Thursday, Allen was taken with the seventh overall pick, falling to the Jacksonville Jaguars. After being projected anywhere from second overall to sixth overall, Allen slid, thanks to the horrible front office management by the Oakland Raiders and the New York Giants.
Anyway, Allen winds up in franchise full of potential with defensive players like Jalen Ramsey and Calais Campbell. This was a team that was a play away from making the Super Bowl in the 2017 season. Hopefully, Allen is the missing piece for Jacksonville to get back into Super Bowl contention.
Here’s what social media had to say about Josh Allen’s draft night:

Booger McFarland just said “I look forward to Josh Allen getting better coaching.”— Not Jerry Tipton (@NotJerryTipton) April 26, 2019
Well I look forward to ESPN getting better analysts.
Josh Allen was a 2 star prospect with no other Power 5 offers, and UK’s coaches turned him into a top 10 pick.
