Cortez Allen   #28 DB

Height: 6-1   Weight: 197   Age: 28

Born: 10/29/1988 San Diego , CA

College: The Citadel

Experience: 5th season

High School: North Marion HS [Citra, FL]









Draft 2011

Pick No.128

Selected By: Pittsburgh Steelers

Round: 4

Pick (Overall): 31 (128)

Pick Analysis: Allen is blessed with the physical tools (great size) to eventually become a backup corner for a press-heavy team but is a raw prospect lacking the natural coverage instincts to develop into a starter. Very capable of jamming receivers at the line but can struggle to mirror once in a trail position. Utilizes his length and reach to rack up the pass break-ups and extend for difficult INTs but needs to show more aggressiveness on jump balls and when taking on blockers against the run. Instincts and awareness need to be developed.
