Wyoming QB and top NFL draft prospect Josh Allen said he would embrace going to the Giants and getting a chance to learn behind Eli Manning. "Being able to learn from Eli would be fantastic. He's obviously a two-time Super Bowl winner and super knowledgeable at the game of football. I was able to spend some time with him at the Manning Passing Academy, and he's a great guy. So being able to go down there (I would) soak up everything he does and follow him around like a puppy."

Allen handled all of them in similar fashion, saying all situations will come with pressure — but he has already been self-motivated and held himself to a higher standard his entire life.
