Biography: Former wide receiver who moved to cornerback and started at the position the past two years. Senior totals included 43 tackles/2 interceptions/4 pass breakups after he had 18 tackles and one interception the prior year.
Positives: Adequately sized cornerback who's shown steady development in his game the past two years. Gives effort defending the run, quick to defend screen passes and forceful up the field. Fluid turning his hips and displays solid movement skills.
Negatives: Quick out of his backpedal and seems unsure of himself moving in reverse. Just an average break to the ball out of his plant and marginal closing speed.
Analysis: Allen has shown flashes of ability the past two seasons since moving to cornerback and offers the size and skills necessary to get consideration as a dime back in zone coverage.
