Josh Allen gets Matt Stafford comparisons. Lamar Jackson gets Terrelle Pryor comparisons. Allen is getting No. 1 overall pick projections for the 2018 NFL Draft while Jackson might fall out of the first round amid suggestion he should move to receiver. Oh yes, it’s draft season.

So I’ll ask: Why isn’t Allen getting tips to try out tight end? Think it’s ludicrous? Well, it’s only slightly more ludicrous than suggesting Jackson should try out receiver when he’s one of the best quarterbacks in a top-heavy draft class.
