Jeff Allen, Offensive Lineman, Illinois 2012 NFL Draft Player Profile


Measurables:

6’4″ 307 pounds

5.28 40 yard dash, 33 1/2″ arm length, 10″ hands, 26 bench press reps

Player report:

Big Ten honorable mention by coaches and 2nd team all-conference as voted by the media after being voted to the 2nd team also as a junior. Big, strong kid who struggles to use his length to his advantage at times. Not an elite athlete but very strong at the point of attack and seems best suited to play guard at the next level. Slightly sloppy build but uses very good technique and was a four-year starter for the Illini. I think he could get drafted as high as the late second round and should be a starter in the NFL eventually. Needs to show more effort in the weight room and get into peak physical shape so he can hold up against NFL defensive linemen.
