Backup QB Rankings: Kyle Allen 'Threat' to Davis Mills for Texans?

Allen is set to backup the Texans' young quarterback project this season

Quarterback Kyle Allen, the in-state collegiate talent

is back in the Lone Star State with the Houston Texans after four years in the NFL. 

But he's landed in the low spot of No. 22 on Pro Football Network's backup quarterback rankings for all 32 teams.

Allen is similar to Siemian in that he has gotten the opportunity to be a fringe starter

but is clearly better off as a dependable backup

He’s capable of pushing Davis Mills without being an actual threat to his QB1 status

Allen can perform if he’s asked to replace Mills due to injury.
