Josh Allen wants pressure of going to Cleveland Browns 1st overall
With only two days left before the NFL draft, no one knows exactly what the Cleveland Browns will do with the pick, but there is a very good chance that a quarterback will be selected. One of the guys in the running for that pick is Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen.
On Tuesday, he talked about how he wants the pressure that comes with being selected first overall.
“Yeah, it would mean that I’m going to Cleveland,” Allen told Pro Football Talk. “My biggest interest of being the No. 1 pick, obviously the pressure that comes along with that, I would love to have that pressure on my shoulders because I’ve always thrived in those situations, and I feel like Cleveland would be a great spot to be. But if I’m not, I’m not, and I’m going to do whatever I can to the team that actually picks me and actually wants me so we’ll go from there.”
He also isn’t concerned about the people who have critiqued and ripped his play during the pre-draft process. He knows what he can bring to whatever team that drafts him.
“It doesn’t bother me one way or another,” Allen said when asked who the top-rated quarterback is. “Everybody’s got their own opinion and their own say. In today’s age, everybody wants to be right, so there’s people that hate you; there’s people that love you.”
There is no question that he is going to be drafted high. The question now for Allen is just where exactly that is going to be.
