Overview:

Allen has the experience, and size to play in either a 4-3, or a 3-4 scheme. He ended his career with 28.0 sacks, and 44.5 tackles for loss. He also was a tackling machine, ending with 152 tackles. He does a great job getting pressure on the quarterback, and he always commands a double team. He is very versatile, as he can play both defensive end, and defensive tackle. He is a run stuffer, and a sure fire tackler. He is a good pass rusher, and he gets through the offensive line with ease, plus he plows his way through the line in pursuit of the quarterback. He does have issues with bigger offensive lineman, but I do not see this as an issue for NFL teams, as Allen should be among the top 5 picks.
