Josh Allen is likely to become the highest selected University of Wyoming athlete in the NFL Draft, ever on Thursday.


Currently, the highest a Poke has ever been taken in the draft was at pick fourteen. That was Ron Billingsley who was drafted by the Chargers in 1967.

Many experts, including ESPN's Mel Kiper think that Josh will possibly be the number one overall pick. Whatever happens, the excitement across Wyoming will be palpable. Josh has created several million dollars worth of exposure to the University of Wyoming and the entire state.
