Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Allen has quick, coordinated footwork to drive fast and furious on plays with enough make-up speed to compensate for his aggressive play style. He is battled tested and plays with supreme confidence, often attempting to get into the opponent?s head with his gift for gab. Loves to throw his body around. Allen always believes a ball in the air belongs to him and displays reliable ballskills with a knack for making something happen after the interception, averaging 29.3 yards per INT return.

WEAKNESSES: Allen has limited strength and can be easily out-muscled by receivers. He will bite on pumps and fakes and needs to improve his overall discipline and body positioning so he doesn't get turned around, especially on post and corner routes.

Player Overview

Although he doesn?t look like much with his pint-sized frame, Allen plays bigger than he looks with a feisty attitude that allows him to match up with superior-sized WRs. He found the field early in his Purdue career and enters his senior season with 36 starts, 19 passes defended and seven INTs, four of which he has returned for TDs (school record).

Allen doesn?t have elite size, strength or speed, but his fearless attitude will earn him a shot, ideally suited as a nickel corner.
