By now you know unless you have been living under a rock that Wyoming QB Josh Allen was drafted on Thursday night by the Buffalo Bills with the 7th overall pick in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft. Allen has made his way to Buffalo and received his new jersey and held a press conference so after all of that, here is the essential Josh Allen NFL Draft reading from this past weekend to keep you updated on the start of his professional career.
Allen to start 3rd on Bills depth chart

This should come as no surprise. Allen will start behind free agent signing A.J. McCarron and second-year player Nathan Peterman in his quest to become the Buffalo Bills starter. How quickly he rises will depend on learning the Bills offensive system and his consistency. It’s likely he will not win the starting job out of training camp but I would expect him to become the starter at some point in the season.

The #17 wore by Allen in brown and gold will also be his number in the NFL in blue and red.
Buffalo is a good fit for Allen

Lastly, a good write up from BuffaoBills.com that outlines why Allen is a good fit for the Bills. This is based on his small town roots and the adversity he faced making it to Laramie which much like Buffalo has seen a day or two with cold and windy weather.
