2018 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about BRIAN ALLEN: Michigan State, 6011 298 5.34. Three-year starter from Hinsdale, IL. A thick and powerful blocker who is solid on the line and dominates on the second level. Takes good angles and cuts off backside pursuit. Plays with intensity that borderlines on vicious and nasty. Powerful on down blocks. Drives legs on contact. Long torso blocker who can anchor and leverage versus the most powerful bull rushers. Accurate, quick, and consistent on his shotgun snaps. Good mental processing to locate the most dangerous man in pass protection. When uncovered, a defender he’s blocking better work to finish because the 37-game starter will give a rib shot to an unaware pass rusher. Allen is productive with decleat blocks and work to finish. A future starter with toughness and intelligence. OSR:33/38. Sixth/seventh round. (A-32 3/8, H-9 1/4, BP-27, 10-1.88).
