BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter who totaled 60 tackles as a senior after a career-high 95 during his junior campaign.
POSITIVES: Hard-working two-down run defender with a good head for the ball. Instinctive, quick filling gaps in run defense, and nicely anticipates the action. Strong, defeats blocks, and wraps up when tackling.
NEGATIVES: Struggles moving laterally, slow changing direction, and does not get depth on pass drops. Pursues the action too aggressively and does not consistently play under control.
ANALYSIS: Allen is a tough run-defending linebacker with very limited speed. His ability to make plays in the box could help him catch on as a backup in a 3-4 alignment.
