Top-ranked QB Josh Allen apologizes after offensive tweets from high school resurface

It's difficult to know what this new information will do to Josh Allen's currently-high draft stock if anything. However, it will have to be explained to future teammates.

Possible No. 1 overall pick and former Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen apologized late Wednesday night for (now-deleted) racially-charged tweets from 2012 and 2013, when he was in high school.

 

Allen apparently called ESPN's Stephen A. Smith that he was "young and dumb" when he wrote them which the reporter stated live on First Take.

Why are you so white ? If it ain't white, it ain't right!

Allen has since deleted the tweets, many of which contained the N-word and an epithet used to disparage gay men.

 

In another tweet in 2013, after being asked: "Why are you so white?" Allen responded, "If it ain't white, it ain't right!" 

 

Before the discovery, Allen was thought to be a top 5 pick. However, it appears he could drop because of the tweets, given the fact that he arrives with other on-field questions to go along with is generational arm talent.
