Expectations are running high for Josh Allens second season. He is progressing smoothly under the tutelage of Coach McDermott and offensive coordinator Brian Daboll. Veterans Matt Barkley and Derek Anderson are mentoring him. ALLEN HAS THE SIZE, MOBILITY, AND ATHLETICISM TO DEVELOP INTO A PREMIER QUARTERBACK.

OPTIMISTIC OVER THE TEAMS PROSPECTS WITH JOSH UNDER CENTER, WE HAVE REASON FOR HOPE AS 1BUFFALO.

The college draft will be coming up in 2 months. The front office is already plotting strategy. The Bills foremost priority is a wide receiver.
