Overview:

Allen had a very nice career at Utah, playing in 42 career games, he had 62 tackles, 4.5 for loss, 5 interceptions, and 14 pass breakups. He has good size, he has good speed, he is solid in coverage, and is a tough nosed player. He is also a defensive play maker, he has goodÊinstincts, is a shut down cornerback, and a very good tackler. On the other hand, he does not have elite speed, but that does not hurt his game, and he had a season ending injury in 2014 after 6 games played. With that said, I view Allen as a early day 3 pick when it is all said and done.
