Yes.

Dave Te told me to like Allen so I do.

You would take Dave Te's word over mine? Damn, Lit.

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.

exactly. He is a player with a HUGE ceiling. Better than Sherman huge. We'll see if they can make him better, find right role.

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


exactly -- I didn't realize this guy was as old as my grandpa....

Not a good factor...

definitely why he dropped so much -- dude will be collecting social security while JuJu is still playing!!

I would doubt Dave Te if you shat upon his opinion, but when I see Dave Te and B2B at least "tapping on" the table in unison for a guy, I'm good to go!

I agreed with his take on Allen-- happens to be a player he saw in person in practice and games as a scout, too. I was just kidding that my word was not enough!

It's funny, I don't think he's got the same knowledge base or judgement, but Dave Te on the radio is the closest thing going to Joel Buschbaum.

Every time Allen intercepted a pass you notice how he catches the ball... Like A WR. Watching his tape out there you will notice Allen is a Hands catcher and Will Go Up After and High Point the Pass much like a WR would. I don't believe you'll be able to 'Stash Allen on the practice squad'. I think he'll be poached like Shabazz and Feeney were last season.
