Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen nearly declared for the 2017 NFL Draft before a change of heart.

Allen was very sure in his decision, passing on feedback from an NFL general manager. He had already spoken with another GM.

"I called (Wyoming) coach (Craig) Bohl back and he said, 'Here, I'm going to get you another GM.' And I said, 'Coach, that's not necessary, I'm going to come back to school and play another year for you,'" Allen said.

Last season's was Allen's first as Wyoming's starter.
