Pos: 
Nice-sized inside linebacker at his best defending the run. Quick to read and recognize the action, plays with a vicious and nasty attitude and works hard to make plays. Takes proper angles to the action, scrapes well laterally and nicely redirects to the ball carrier. Forceful on the blitz, quick up the field and delivers violent blows to jar the ball loose from opponents. Displays a sixth sense for what’s happening on the field, is rarely off his feet and also remains disciplined with assignments. Effective special-teams player who has blocked punts in the past.
Neg: 
Displays average quickness and long speed in his game. Struggles in coverage and really is best making plays downhill.
Analysis: 
Allen possesses the size and temperament to backup at inside linebacker in a 3-4 alignment, as he’s a terrific run defender who stacks well up the field. He also plays with a special-teams mentality, which will be his ticket at the next level.
