Mayfield faced better competition throughout his career, but Allen never had the clean pockets or the reliable pass-catchers that Mayfield was afforded at Oklahoma — especially in 2017. With that in mind, Allen needs to show more consistency with his footwork (and subsequently his accuracy). His career 56.1 completion percentage in college will be a frequent discussion topic during the pre-draft process. The tape shows a quarterback who can make the tough throws look ridiculously easy at times; now he needs to show he can make the routine throws consistently. As a side note, I think Allen will do well in the classroom and his experience in a more pro-style system should give him a mental edge over some of the other spread-based QBs. — McShay

I’m actually more interested in seeing Mayfield’s numbers at the weigh-in than anything he does on the field this week. Is he really 6-foot-1 or is that a stretch? Based on standing eye to eye with him, my guess is he’s a little under that number. Is his hand span 9 inches or less? The five-year NFL combine average for QBs is 9.5 inches, and anything under 9 is concerning. It won’t define his career, but the Brandon Morrow Jersey list of sub 6-foot QBs who have had sustained success in the NFL is a short one. — McShay
My concern is with how Shazier went limp, including [temporarily] his arm. It is extremely worrisome how his legs, especially the left leg, flopped as he turned over. He did not sit up to help extricate his left arm from being trapped behind his back.
Nick Martin Jersey Some good news coming out from Steelers. Two players called Shazier’s injury a spinal chord concussion, comparable to Tommy Maddox injury in 2002; Maddox missed 1 game. Encouraging news, another said.
A first-round pick by the Steelers in 2014 out of Ohio State, Shazier was a Pro Bowl selection after the 2016 season and is among Pittsburgh’s best players. Tyler Matakevich, a 2016 seventh-round pick from Temple, came in for Shazier in Monday’s game.
