Watch Josh Allen’s Incredible “70-Yard Teardrop” At The NFL Combine

Not every quarterback projected to go in the first round of the upcoming draft opted to throw at the NFL combine.

One of the top four certainly not regretting his decision to toss: Wyoming’s Josh Allen.

The 6’5″ behemoth drew audible gasps from scouts when he hucked this pigskin from the offense’s 10-yard line to the defense’s 24-yard line. Factoring in the angle from the middle of the field toward the sideline, the throw had to be at least 70 yards and on the money.

Arm strength has never been an issue with Allen. This is a guy who hit the crossbar from his knees from 50 yards away

But he completed just 56.3 percent of his passes in 2017 playing mostly against weaker Mountain West Conference foes after completing 56 percent in 2016.

He showed scouts that he can at least complete passes accurately with no pass rush and his feet set at the combine.

UCLA’s Josh Rosen and Heisman-winner Baker Mayfield of Oklahoma didn’t exactly crap the bed in the throwing portion of the combine either.

The only of the top four quarterbacks not to throw: USC’s Sam Darnold.

“I just felt it was the best decision for myself,” he said of opting not to throw. “Obviously, you know, throwing at my pro day with my guys at (USC). So I think its gonna be an amazing experience and something I’m looking forward to. … It was even tough today, sitting and watching these guys throw. I just kind of wanted to get out there and throw. So it was hard, but it was a decision I had to make and a gut feeling that I went with and stuck with.”

Yeah, I wouldn’t want to follow Allen’s arm either.
