A surprise contender may be emerging to go with the top overall pick in the NFL Draft next April.

Peter King of MMQB reported Monday that a veteran scout believes Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen will go No. 1 overall to the Cleveland Browns.

Per King:

So in my rounds on the phone over the weekend, I heard this from a veteran college scout, a man who was one of the first to trumpet Carson Wentz as a high first-rounder during his final season at North Dakota State, on the fate of the first pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, and on what Cleveland GM John Dorsey might do: “I believe there is no way Cleveland, at number one, will pass on Josh Allen. This is Wentz reincarnated. Allen’s a perfect Dorsey quarterback. Just watch.”

Allen, 21, helped Wyoming to an 8-5 record this year (second in the Mountain West) and threw for 1,812 yards with 16 touchdowns to six interceptions in 11 games.
