The early expectation for the 2018 NFL draft is that it will be a strong year for quarterbacks. While it’s said almost every year, it could be true if the top signal callers continue on their current developmental trajectory.
At the top is the trio of Josh Rosen of UCLA, Sam Darnold of Southern California and Josh Allen of Wyoming. They’re all viewed as first-round picks, but each has a glaring issue. For Rosen, it’s his health after his missed part of last season with a shoulder injury. For Darnold it’s his inexperience, playing in just nine games and owning a slightly unorthodox delivery. For Allen, it’s a matter of decision making after he threw 15 interceptions and completed only 56 percent of his passes last season.

In addition to swatting the Flywire, the new look allows the two side stripes to extend farther toward the center of the jersey.
