Colin Cowherd: “I look at this list of players and Lavonte David, a linebacker on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, is ranked 100. If he’s the 100th best player in this league, the NFL is in good shape because that dude can play, and is one of the best young linebackers in football. Thirteen spots ahead of them they have Josh Allen. I mean, c’mon now (LOL). Big and strong, I get it. Runs over people, big arm, I get it. Josh Allen is not a top 100 player in the NFL. He’s 6’6”, he can run, and I think he has the strongest arm in the NFL, but great players do not unravel against the best teams or coaches. Josh Allen has played the Patriots three times. His completion percentage is 48%, his passer rating is 56, and he has more picks than touchdowns…. In 27 NFL starts, Josh Allen has only completed 56% of his throws. That’s atrocious and TERRIBLE. I know he can run – great! – but that’s not a top 100 football player in the NFL. There’s 1,700 players in the NFL and I would make the argument that Josh Allen is not a top 200 player today. If Lavonte David is 100, then Josh Allen is not a top 200 player in the NFL, he just looks the part.” (Full Video Above)
Listen to Colin Cowherd dispute NFL.com’s recent release of their 2020 ‘Top 100’ rankings of NFL players, as their annual list has always been one of the most interesting talking points of the offseason.
Check out the video above as Colin targets Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen being ranked 87 on the list, as Colin makes the argument that Allen isn’t even a top 200 player at this point in his career.
