Overview

Allen was a two year starter at tight end for Clemson where he won the Mackey award as the nations top TE before declaring early for the draft. He was a first-team All-ACC selection and has great size for the position and even better speed. He is a polished and accomplished route runner who understands how to play the position and will be an immediate threat at the next level. He is a more classic, line-attached tight end who can work upfield out of a three point stance without having to rely on aligning in the slot. He has a rare combination of size, speed, athleticism, and overall understanding of the intricacies of the position.

Analysis

Strengths

Allen is an extremely flexible mover who works in and out of a two-point stance with ease. He has the strength and body control to avoid jams at the line of scrimmage and is good to fight through and stack back on top of his defender and get into his route. He can drop his weight in and out of breaks and is a very smooth runner for a man his size. He is quick to turn his head and locate the ball and uses his body well to shield off defenders downfield. Allen is an explosive athlete who can separate form linebackers and safeties alike. He is natural as a short area receiver and could be a go-to option early on to move the chains.

Weaknesses

Allen labors at times off the ball when blocking in the run game and has a bit of an unorthodox stance when trying to block. He is simply not the caliber of blocker that he is receiver, but he is above average there. It's difficult to find many weaknesses in Allen's game based off the junior year he put together.
