Tends to struggle in man coverage where he has to turn and run
Not a violent threat in deep half/over middle
Doesn't have superstar potential
Summary: Nate Allen has been a favorite of mine all year. Some guys just find ways to make plays despite average measureables. I expect Allen to win a starting job quickly in his career. He's a prototypical free safety who is clean off the field and has a reportedly great work ethic. I expect Allen to come off the board between picks 35 and 70.
Player Comparison: Tanard Jackson. Jackson didn't have great measurables coming out of Syracuse, but he's a very good technician and a great playmaker for Tampa Bay.
Out of sheer boredom and the upcoming NBA draft has gotten me itching to make a new mock draft. Of course the NFL draft is a whole lot less predictable than the NBA draft, but also provides more success stories than the NBA draft. Again, I used schedules to determine each team's records and if you get upset with me just remember it's June and a whole lot can change by next April.
