Brian Allen   # CB

Height: 6-3   Weight: 215   Age: 26

Born: 10/21/1993 La Marque , TX

College: Utah

Experience: 3rd season

High School: La Marque HS [TX]









Draft 2017

Pick No.173

Selected By: Pittsburgh Steelers

Round: 5

Pick (Overall): 30 (173)

Pick Analysis: Allen did not play defense in high school, but Utah seems to be able to convert the long, tall receivers into coveted cornerback prospects. The married father of one played in 10 games as a reserve as a redshirt freshman in 2013, even playing receiver in one game. Allen contributed on special teams, safety and cornerback in six games the next season, missing the second half of the year with an injury. He returned to begin realizing his potential on the outside in 2015, playing in 13 games, starting three, intercepting a pass and breaking up three others. Allen led the Utes with four interceptions in 2016, starting seven of 11 games played.
