49ers News: Todd McShay Has San Francisco Taking Wyoming QB Josh Allen In 2018 "Way-Too-Early" Mock Draft

The San Francisco 49ers still have a big need at quarterback after choosing to address their defense early in the 2017 NFL Draft, but with a loaded QB class in 2018, they are expected to take one early in next year's draft.

ESPN's Todd McShay expects them to do just that, projecting the 49ers will take Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen with the No. 2 pick in his "way-too-early" 2018 mock draft:

Allen is very physically gifted, but he needs to improve his decision-making and be a little more consistent with his footwork. He has good mobility and the arm strength to make any throw in the book.

San Francisco has the No. 2 pick in that mock draft, with the order based on Football Outsiders' projected records for the 2017 season.

McShay also has quarterbacks going with each of the top three picks, with USC's Sam Darnold going No. 1 to the Cleveland Browns and UCLA's Josh Rosen going No. 3 to the New York Jets.

Allen, who stands 6-foot-5 and weighs 222 lbs., threw for 3,203 yards with 28 touchdowns and 15 interceptions last season in his first year as the starter. He also ran for 523 more yards and seven more scores.
