While some can point out that he wasn't playing with players as talented as he was, you could also point out how bad Rosen's UCLA team was. You probably will after reading this, though.

NFL Draft expert Mel Kiper Jr. predicts that former Penn State tailback Saquon Barkley will be selected No. 4 overall by the Cleveland Browns on April 26 in Dallas.

Countering that is that Allen had wide receiver Tanner Gentry (with the Bears), the best running back ever in Laramie in Brian Hill (5th round draft pick and now on the Bengals) and center Chase Roullier who was in the rotation with the Washington Redskins this year. Could New England think about a quarterback here? Whether that happens in the first round, second round, or later in the draft will be telling for what they think of their quarterback situation moving forward.

ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. predicted in his first mock draft of the year that the Cleveland Browns would draft former Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen first overall. It's a controversial prediction. "I've gone back and forth a few times on Josh Rosen, Sam Darnold and Allen, but I just moved Allen up to my No. 1 quarterback", Kiper says.

Allen finished his junior season with an unimpressive 16 touchdowns and six interceptions in 11 games, as well as five rushing touchdowns.

The Patriots seem more likely than not to draft a potential quarterback of the future in this year's draft. But the National Football League is all about projection, and he has a high ceiling.

"The best comp for Allen (6-5, 233) is Big Ben (Roethlisberger) when he came out of college", the unnamed executive told the Plain-Dealer.

Yet, compared to last year, when Myles Garrett was the sure-fire top prospect, this year's class has very little clarity, particularly before the combine and workouts.
