Twitter reacts: Bills choose Josh Allen in first round of NFL Draft

The Bills selected QB Josh Allen with the 7th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. Allen is a 6'5, 230-pound quarterback with a rocket for an arm, and that's the kind of player that teams typically line up for the chance to acquire.

NFLDraftScout.com senior analyst Rob Rang lists USC quarterback Sam Darnold first in his most recent Big Board.

Now the question becomes when Allen will be deemed ready to take over as starter on a team once again hitting the reset button on offense.

He also found himself caught in an unexpected controversy yesterday regarding some very alarming tweets from his high school years, but it did not appear to affect how much the Bills wanted him at all. 12, 53 and 56 (both second-rounders) picks for the right to move up five spots and select whom they hope is their quarterback of the future.

Allen is ranked 10th by Rang, Mayfield is 13th and Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson is 23rd.

The Buccaneers finished 5-11 last season. Though Wyoming was unable to defend its crown last fall, they still won eight games, the first time since 1987-88 they'd managed to reach that mark in consecutive years.

Yahoo! Sports reported Allen sent the tweets in 2012 and 2013 and they contained racially insensitive language and offensive statements.

The presence of AJ McCarron means there won't necessarily be immediate pressure on Allen to step in and assume the starting role, but Buffalo didn't make this pick so he can sit on the bench too long.
