ESPN Mock: Who Does McShay Have The Jets Selecting?

Posted Feb 8, 2018

Four QBs Go in Top-Six Picks in McShay Mock, Green & White Select Allen


In his latest mock draft, ESPN’s Todd McShay had the Jets selecting Wyoming signal caller Josh Allen No. 6 overall.


A pair of California gunslingers were the first two picks off the board with USC’s Sam Darnold at No. 1 to the Browns and UCLA’s Josh Rosen to the Giants at No. 2. McShay then had the Colts selecting NC State’s edge rusher Bradley Chubb, who was followed by Penn State RB Saquon Barkley with the Browns’ second first-round pick. At No. 5 overall, Denver selected Heisman trophy winner Baker Mayfield, who was a part of the North team at the Senior Bowl, which the Broncos coached.

Allen started two seasons for the Cowboys, throwing for 5,015 yards, 44 touchdowns and 21 interceptions while completing 56.2% of his passes in 25 games. Many draft pundits believe the 6’5”, 240-pounder is a top-three quarterback in this year’s class even though some consider him a raw prospect. Allen completed nine of his 13 passes for 158 yards and two touchdowns in the Senior Bowl following an up-and-down week of practice.

“I’m way more accurate than that shows,” Allen said. “That’s what I’m cleaning up in this offseason to show everybody come practice time that I’ve been working on that. The key to my accuracy is making sure my feet are set right and have a more polished throwing motion. When my feet are right, it allows my hips to open a little better, which is where your accuracy comes from.”
