Thirty-five years to the day after the Buffalo Bills drafted Jim Kelly, they will hopefully get their next franchise quarterback in Josh Allen. After the Bills traded up to No. 7 and selected quarterback Allen from Wyoming, Twitter, naturally, exploded.
There were the positive responses, with many tweeters trusting the process.
Good pick! Josh Allen slid, and probably should have been the number 1 pick. He won't be mad, he is going to a team that is ready to make a playoff run and possibly contend in a year or two. #Buffalo #Bills

Like that pick for the #Bills and for Josh Allen. With AJ there already there he won’t be pushed to start right away and can develop for a year or so and work on his accuracy issues. And AJ might actually get the chance to start. I like it. #NFLDraft

Not everyone was as ready to go with the flow. Some fans had negative reviews of picking Allen.
The Process takes a hit. #Bills

Didn't jump off the couch over Buffalo pick. I wanted the other Josh. Time will tell #Bills

This move reeks of EJ Manuel draft... #bills

I do not like that move for the #Bills. Good luck to Josh Allen but that's a lot to give up for a guy with some real red flags
