2018 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about MARCUS ALLEN: Penn State, 6021 215 4.52. Four-year starter from Upper Marlboro, MD. Has good size for the position along with physical and mental toughness. Shows a fluid initial pedal with good footwork and above average reactions and change of direction. Has solid zone cover skills improving each year. He has played half, quarters and deep high in the Penn State scheme. Good awareness seeing the threats and reacting to pattern pressure. Matches up well in quarters to a vertical route by a tight end or slot. At times in the deep zones gives up too much cushion worrying about getting beat deep and does not get to a lot of balls. Takes some false steps at times reacting to a cut or breaking on the ball. Does not get beat deep but is not a consistent playmaker in deep coverage. Plays the short flat well reading the quarterback and routes. Solid in run support. Instinctive versus the run with top level range in pursuit. Experienced chase player cutting down angles on the backside. Does a good job tracking and adjusting to movement working downhill from the deep safety spot. Physical attacking blocks with a jolt with his hands. Sheds well. Physical secure tackler with knee bend and finish. Makes plays in space. Has good kick coverage skill and this along with potential as a sub package linebacker may be his ticket. 2017 stats: 71 T, 4 TFL, 1 sack, 3 PBU, 1 QBH, 2 FF, 1 INT. BTR:left 5.14, right 5.20. Did not run at Combine, his choice. Second/third round. (A-30 5/8, H-9 1/8, VJ-37, SS-4.32).
