Anthony Allen Scouting Report
Anthony Allen
Anthony Allen - Georgia Tech (HT: 6-0¾ - WT: 228)
Combine 40: 4.59 - Position Rank: 24 of 35

Positives: Above average speed for his size, has some explosion to his game... Holds onto the football, great ball security... Good power, hard runner, excels between the tackles... Good burst through the hole, doesn't go down easy... Physical, tenacious runner... Runs with good forward lean... Keeps his legs moving on contact... Solid run blocker, versatile enough to play fullback, played in Georgia Tech's triple option offense which asked him to do more blocking than most feature backs are used to... Solid receiver out of the backfield, displays good hands and doesn't let the ball get into his body... Productive player when given the chance to shine, was underutilized at Louisville, transferred to Georgia Tech and seized the opportunity rushing for over 1300 yards and seven touchdowns in 2010... Plays up to competition, some of his best games in 2010 came against Georgia, Virginia Tech, and North Carolina... Should be a good power backup and goal-line runner... Led all running backs with a 41.5" vertical at the combine.

Negatives: Not very creative, doesn't cut very well... Not real elusive in space, prefers to try to run over defenders, doesn't have much wiggle to him... Will be a 25 year old rookie... Running backs haven't adjusted to the NFL well from Paul Johnson's triple-option offense, seemed to inflate stats in college... Below average vision and patience, runs past his blockers at times and misses cutback lanes... Doesn't have much experience running routes out of the backfield... Will not contribute on special teams, has one career kick return.
