PLAYERS
Anthony Allen
Round 7, Pick 225
Position: RB
Class:  5Sr
School: Georgia Tech
Conference: Atlantic Coast
HT: 5-8.5
WT: 199
40 Time: 4.55
Biography: Louisville transfer who started both the seasons he played for Georgia Tech. All-Conference selection as a senior with career numbers of 217/1225/6. Junior totals included 64/618/6.

Positives: "Strong interior ball carrier who is a bit one dimensional. Displays power in his game, carries the ball with toughness, and gives effort in all aspects. Keeps his running form despite taking several hits, stays on his feet, and breaks tackles to pick up yardage off initial contact. Falls forward when tackled. Gives effort blocking."

Negatives: Straight line runner who loses momentum when he must change direction. Cannot run to daylight in the open field. Marginal skills as a receiver.

Analysis: Allen is a well-sized prospect who does the little things well and should be a competent backup as a short-yardage specialist at the next level.

Projection: 5th
