Bio: 
Two-year starter who completed 56.1 percent of his passes for 1,427 yards, 10 touchdowns and five interceptions in eight games and missed four contests with a right shoulder injury in 2017. Earned an invitation to the NFLPA Bowl. Led the SEC with 3,430 passing yards and completed 61.1 percent of his passes for 25 touchdowns and 15 interceptions as a junior.
Pos: 
Undersized quarterback who is accurate in the short and intermediate field. Displays tremendous pocket awareness, remains poised under the rush and goes to the underneath outlet if nothing else is available. Goes through progressions, locates the open wideout. Throws the ball away and doesn’t force passes to covered targets. Displays outstanding vision, puts touch on throws when necessary and effectively rolls outside the pocket and throws on the move.
Neg: 
Lacks a big arm and cannot drive deep throws. The further downfield he throws the ball, the less accurate he is. Lack of height will be a hindrance at the next level.
Analysis: 
Allen was efficient at the college level but comes with limited potential. His understanding of the game could help him catch on as a third quarterback.
