This four-year Penn State star brings a decorated resume to the table as he goes through the pre-draft process.

Allen played in 49 games with the Nittany Lions and finished fifth on their all-time tackles list with 321 – 17 of them for loss. He also blocked the field goal that led to Penn State’s first-ever blocked field goal return for a touchdown. He earned first-team All-Big Ten honors after his senior year.

Despite his four years of play, Allen is still just 21 years old, but he turned into one of Penn State’s most outspoken leaders during his career after starting out as a “hot head,” as he called himself, even referencing a game in 2014 when things got heated begin him and current Vikings star Stefon Diggs.

He is the godson of Hall of Famer Curtis Martin.

PRODUCTIVITY SCORE: 108.9 | ATHLETICISM SCORE: 96.1 | AGE SCORE: 118.0
