2008 Draft: Rnd 1 Pick 18
Drew Allar is unique in that there are not many pocket passers at his size (6-foot-5, 230 pounds) with his arm dexterity. The Penn State signal caller not only has plus arm strength – he delivers throws from multiple arm slots and gets considerable rotation throughout his upper body allowing for off-platform throws. There does not appear to be a great comp for Allar. We considered Philip Rivers and Josh Allen before ultimately settling on Flacco. Rivers has a unique playing style and release and it’s tough to project Allar ending up as a similar athlete and rush threat to Allen. While he’s an inch or two shorter than Flacco, we see some similarities in the plus arm talent, movement skills and even some of the delivery from Flacco’s time at Delaware and ultimately in the NFL.
