Josh Allen Draft Predictions
Josh Allen seems like the perfect fit for an organization with the history and reputation of the Oakland Raiders. Raiders head coach Jon Gruden has received an immense amount of heat in the wake of trading Khalil Mack last season. Allen would instantly offer the pass rusher that the Raiders were desperate for last season after Mack's departure. Allen's skills could immediately translate as a pass rusher at the next level and his coverage skills are a bonus. Expect his name to be called early in the draft.
