Adam Allen is listed running a 4.6, 40 yard dash at 225lbs and you can clearly see his game speed is that of a Division one athlete, on the first play of his highlights. Adam is able to fly down field and simply blow through the up back and make a aggressive tackle on kickoff. The next play Adam is able to demonstrate his remarkable closing speed, while easily tracking down the quarterback in the backfield. He shows great moves on the interior line and is physically imposing on his opponents. On the next play, Adam reads the run-option extremely well and once again finishes off the tackle with brute force! The spin move exhibited at 52 seconds into his film reminded me of the great London Fletcher. Allen also shows a extremely high motor in his aggression chasing down ball carriers and not giving up on the play. Allen is seen easily "scraping" down the line of scrimmage and then is able to detach from blockers to make significant plays in the backfield. With Allen's overall athleticism he will be utilized in a variety of ways at the next level. In my opinion, he will fit perfectly as a Hybrid OLB/DE and can provide a instant pass rush to any College program. With his 4.6 speed, I can see him being very valuable playing the pass, as you can see at 2:27 into his highlights when he takes a interception to the house. His play in the run game is extremely stout and he surely can play with the big boys, at any level of College Football. Adam can be seen around 4:50, making three great reads on quick "snap throws" and getting his hands up to bat the balls down. I love Adam's overall skill set, as he can be used in nearly every aspect of the game to propel your team to a high level. My official "Evaluation" grade on Adam Allen is a high caliber D1 prospect, as he has already heard from Miami (OH) University. He shows glimpses of brilliance as a outside player on the Defense and can be lined up practically anywhere with his aggressive style of play. His special teams play will be a immediate impact on ANY collegiate football program and I am extremely excited to work with Adam at our Oak Hill, Ohio Regional Mini Camp this Saturday! Thank you Adam for trusting us to show you to the world of College football and keep up the great work!
