BIO: Awarded All-Conference honors the past two years and given All-America consideration as a senior. Previous All-Academic selection.
POSITIVES: Hard-working, self-motivated lineman who works best in a small area. Blocks with forward lean and anchors at the point. Engulfs defenders or removes them from the action. Alert, and works well with teammates. Has a nasty streak and gives good effort.
NEGATIVES: Lacks footwork in space, over-extends into blocks and not effective off the line of scrimmage.
ANALYSIS: A durable lineman the past three years, Allen does the extras to improve his game. Marginally athletic, he can play in the NFL if placed in the proper system.
