Draft Profile: Josh Allen (Defensive End, Kentucky)


Defensive End, Kentucky


258 pounds

Josh Allen is a senior at Kentucky. He is projected to get picked in the top 4 by most NFL mock drafts. While the Buccaneers cannot afford to trade up in order to acquire him due to the many holes this team needs to fill, Licht should pull the trigger on this game changer if he is still available when the Bucs are on the board at pick number 5. Allen is one of the best players available in the draft this year at a position that has become more and more important in today’s pass-happy league. He has all the tools to become a starter at the next level right away and to be a pro bowler sooner rather than later.
