Did Jaguars top pick Josh Allen slip in your dynasty league's rookie draft amid concern that he'd play LB? Well, drop that concern. "Josh Allen was drafted to be a defensive end," DC Todd Wash told the team website Thursday. "He did a real nice job of dropping [into coverage] in college. I can't honestly say -- being a D-line [coach] that I get too excited about a 15-sack guy dropping into coverage. Hopefully, you won't see too damned much of that." Allen finished his Kentucky career with 17 sacks and 21.5 total tackles for loss last season. He has a shot to prove immediately relevant in IDP leagues.

The Jaguars spent the 7th pick of the NFL Draft on DE Josh Allen. The former Kentucky star exploded for 17 sacks and 21.5 tackles for loss in his senior season, after tallying 14 sacks and 19 tackles for loss over his previous 2 seasons. Allen should work into the edge rotation right away. Jacksonville has Yannick Ngakoue and Calais Campbell starting at DE currently, but Campbell often moves inside for passing situations. Most importantly for IDP owners, going to Jacksonville's 4-3 base scheme should start Allen with a DE designation. That helps his value for dynasty rookie drafts.
