Ourlads' Analysis:

2017 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about BRIAN ALLEN: Utah, 6031 215 4.43. Started one year and 12 out of 33 games. From La Marque, TX. The fifth year senior began his career as a wide receiver. Finished second on the team with 10 passes defended and four interceptions. Possesses a rare combination of height, weight, and timed speed. Plays the ball very well. Can out jump and outreach almost anyone he is matched up against. Gets to the ball at the apex of his leap. Wide cover radius. Effective use of long arms as a press corner. Willing tackler in downhill run support. Plenty aggressive and physical. Struggles to correctly forecast routes and throws. Often a step or two behind mentally. Always in a catch up mode. Slow mover in and out of his breaks. Doesn’t trust his own speed, will bail on his backpedal way too early and leave too much underneath separation. Tight-hipped and will struggle to change direction with a receiver. The size and speed to go along with his ball skills create a sense of potential and high ceiling, but at the end of the day he was too easily beaten by receivers who knew what they were doing. He is a long term project. 2016 stats: 35 T, 4.5 TFL, 1 sack, 10 PBU, 4 INT. BTR:left 4.55, right 4.97. OSR:13/35. Fifth/sixth round. (A-34, H-10, VJ-34.5, SS-4.18).
