Allen Bailey
Round 3, Pick 86
Position: DE
Class:  5Sr
School: Miami-Fl
Conference: Atlantic Coast
HT: 6-3
WT: 285
40 Time: 4.71
Biography: Two year starter awarded all-Conference honors each of the last two years with 45/11/7 as a senior and 34/11/7 as a junior.

Positives: "Big, versatile lineman who can be used at tackle or end in a two-gap system. Plays with good pad level, consistently doubled by opponents, tough to handle, and rarely gives up an inch of room. Fluid moving about the field and shows the ability to bend off the edge or chase the action in pursuit. Strings plays out laterally, remains disciplined with assignments, and is relatively instinctive. Strong, jolts blockers with violent hand punch, and hustles around the field trying to make plays. Does more than just pin his ears back and rush up the field. Occupies blockers, allowing linebackers to get the ball. Positions himself to make plays."

Negatives: Lacks great first-step quickness. Adequate but not a great pass rusher. Must develop more moves with his hands. Did not develop the past two seasons as scouts had expected.

Analysis: "Bailey looked like a future star early in his college career yet failed to live up to expectations as a senior. He offers a great amount of upside and if coached properly, Bailey will be a productive starter at the next level."

Projection: 2nd
