Watch Josh Allen's Incredible "70-Yard Teardrop" At The NFL Combine

Teams finally get to see QB hopefuls at combine

If the Giants see fit to select one of them, it will be an adjustment - more so for Allen, who was raised on a farm and went to college at Wyoming, as opposed to Darnold, who played college ball in Los Angeles.

Former USC quarterback Sam Darnold met with the media Friday at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, with the questions hitting on his growing friendship with ex-UCLA passer Josh Rosen and his turnover issues in college.

"I'm trying to show who I really am and not who I'm trying to be, because I don't want them to draft someone they think they're getting, and then not get that guy..."

Allen is not about to forget the path he took to reach this point, a slow churn of messages that either weren't returned or ended with "thanks, but no thanks", replies.

One of about four or five players the Browns are considering in the first round, Allen hopes the Browns liked what they saw from him these few days.

But you wouldn't know it, based on the crowd that surrounded his podium Friday afternoon.

Allen dazzled scouts and coached with his big arm so much during his workout that he drew a loud "ooh" after one nearly 70-yard toss.

Allen had somewhat of an idea of what to expect at the Combine because this isn't his first time here. Maybe it's the fact that he attended the combine as a spectator a year ago, cataloging a process he would soon encounter. However, that kid ought to want to get up before or after Rosen, Lamar Jackson, all these guys, and say, "I'm just as good", or, "I'm better, let's go, let's rip it". "So it was hard, but it was a decision I had to make and a gut feeling that I went with and stuck with". Four of the seven analysts put Mayfield in the top six, but the other three have him at 11 or lower, including one with the Sooner star all the way down at #17.

Xi became vice president in 2008 and was given a top spot in the powerful Central Military Commission in 2010. Limits were introduced more than 30 years ago ostensibly to prevent a repeat of the Mao dictatorship.

ARMED AND DANGEROUS: NFL Network analyst David Carr is sold on Josh Allen of Wyoming as a thrower of fastballs. The deluge of opinions and analysis about draft prospects, especially top quarterbacks, can be dizzying - perhaps more so than family members of prospects than the players themselves.

Rosen and Jackson entered the draft after their junior seasons and could not participate in the Senior Bowl.

"I think that there's kind of a misconception with the whole thing", he said. "All three guys were good guys".

For quarterbacks, the Combine is primarily beneficial to individuals with great physical optics - the guys who "look" like quarterbacks in stature or motion. "That's just the sense that I got from him, and he's just got this demeanor about him that's really cool". That's just not how it is.

"You see a lot of smaller-school guys go on to the National Football League and have success", noted Allen. "As soon as I get drafted, I'm [going] to dive into that playbook and start moving forward".

Allen has said he would be up for the task of revitalizing the Browns, who have won a combined one game over the past two seasons.

For his part, Rosen said it'll only bother him if teams come away from the combine unconvinced that football is his ultimate passion.

"I'd be completely fine with it, " he said. "I love football with all of my heart and soul".
