Scouting Report: Strengths
  • His passing game skills are strong. He’s a natural hands catcher who turns upfield quickly in the screen game, and Allen shows a great feel for setting up wheel routes.
  • Allen is a natural playmaker, at his best with the ball in his hands.
  • Made Bruce Feldman's 2023 Freak's List - ranked #34. He wrote "Last year he made it on the strength of his power-cleaning 406 pounds and clocking a 1.49 in his 10-yard split. He benched 365. Allen has bulked up 10 more pounds to 245 now. “I’m bigger, but I am leaner now,” Allen says. “I went from 11 percent body fat to 8 percent this offseason. I’m definitely faster now.”"
  • He runs with violence; he’s capable of thrashing through tacklers, and he has the natural balance to withstand contact.
  • He shows good initial burst and runs with violence through traffic. He typically finishes runs well, especially in short-yardage situations.
  • Fights for extra yardage and is reliable in short-yardage situations.
  • Allen aggressively finishes runs and consistently falls forward in a crowd. His low pad level and a bit of wiggle keep him from absorbing big hits.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • He’s good on screen and swing passes, but Allen doesn’t have the route-running feel to be the kind of back you flex out.
  • Allen could stand to get smaller when squeezing through traffic.
  • Allen has soft hands, but he can be slow to gather and head upfield after the catch.

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
