Former Wyoming QB Josh Allen may have the best arm in this year's draft, but arm strength doesn't neccessarily equate to success in the NFL. Short horizontal passesĀ are the focus of most NFL offenses, so Allen's ability to throw the ball 80-yards is more impressive than useful at the next level. Draft evaluators need to be more focused on the film than pro day performances.

The Astros have now lost five straight games and the starting pitching and bullpen have let them down over that stretch. Cristian Javier was recently demoted to help him build up his stamina so that he can pitch deeper in games as the team's 5th starter when the schedule demands a 5-man starting rotation. But in the meantime, the Astros could desperately use his help out of the bullpen, and he's likely headed for relief duty when Framber Valdez returns from injury anyway. So this begs the question, is a role as the team's fifth starter the best way to maximize Javier's abilities? Check out the video to find out.
