    Summary: Allen Bailey might be stuck in no man's land when it comes to a true position at the NFL level. While position versatility is coveted, he has limitations in both spots. At end, he does not have the speed required to rush off the edge, and at tackle, he is not big enough. He is a tremendous athlete though and a former linebacker. Unfortunately he has underachieved.

    A team might select Bailey on Day 2 believing they can coach up his athletic ability and really have something special in a couple of years.

    Player Comparison: Robert Ayers. In terms of height, weight and speed, they were almost identical at their respective Combines. When Ayers went to the NFL he was considered versatile and has struggled to find the right position. Now he will hope to find his way as Denver switches schemes. This is a good example of how a great athlete can get lost at the next level even with clear ability, and Bailey might suffer a similar fate. The one major difference is that Ayers excelled at the Senior Bowl while Bailey struggled mightily, and will not be selected anywhere close to No. 18 overall as a result (as long as the Buccaneers take someone else at No. 20).
