4.18 short shuttle, 38" vert., 10'7" broad jump on his pro day. Has the sparq and the length. All we can hope for is he has the drive and ability to translate it all to steal of the draft in the 5th.

His tape is also good, level of comp and some issues tracking deep ball imho drove him down boards. I can't believe he fell in Steeler's laps. This to me is like Javon Hargrave gift of last draft.

Yes.

Dave Te told me to like Allen so I do.


Brian Allen Utah would have been a much more solid pick, IMO.

I didn't know the comma was required!

Being 24 years old already is a huge knock on him and likely played a part in where he was selected.

Good risk-reward in the 5th round. If he's not 24 years old than he's drafted by another team. With the 34" arm length he can lend an inch to Cam 30", Cockrell 29.8", and Senquez 29.75" but not Artie 33.2". Arm length is useful but it's not as important as football skill.

Low risk pick and it's a luxury to have a 6'3" sub 4.5 corner in today's NFL where the Recievers are huge. Allen is a former WR and he's still learning the position and how to tackle, he's raw. But overall, promising pick but probably needs a year to develop.
