Allen is blessed with the physical tools (great size) to eventually become a backup corner for a press-heavy team but is a raw prospect lacking the natural coverage instincts to develop into a starter. Very capable of jamming receivers at the line but can struggle to mirror once in a trail position. Utilizes his length and reach to rack up the pass break-ups and extend for difficult INTs but needs to show more aggressiveness on jump balls and when taking on blockers against the run. Instincts and awareness need to be developed. Allen likely will be taken on Day 3.

(Oh goody another backup corner. Well I suppose we need someone to keep the bench warm. - mesa)
