Giants to meet with Kentucky edge rusher Josh Allen ahead of NFL Draft

The Giants will continue their meetings with top-30 prospects on Friday when they host Kentucky edge rusher Josh Allen at the facility, a source tells SNY’s Ralph Vacchiano. 

Allen follows Michigan defensive end Rashan Gary and Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray, both of whom met with the Giants on Thursday. 

The Giants have brought in, or plan to bring in, all top-5 quarterbacks in the draft and most of the top prospects. 

Allen, a 6-foot-5, 262-pound pass rusher and native of Montclair, NJ, is considered to be the second-best pass rusher in the draft behind Ohio State’s Nick Bosa due to his size and speed. 

He had 17 tackles and five forced fumbles his senior season, which both ranked second in the FBS, and he was tied for sixth nationally with 21.5 tackles for a loss. 

Many mock drafts project Allen to be taken before the Giants, but it is certainly possible he could still fall to them at the No. 6 pick, especially if a quarterback-needy team trades up ahead of the Giants.
