Ourlads' Profile:

2016 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about GERONIMO ALLISON: Illinois, 6032 196 4.65. Two-year starter from Tampa, FL. Junior college transfer. Honorable mention All-Big 10. Led the Illini in receiving and receiving yards in 2015. Only Aaron Burbridge from Michigan State was targeted more than Allison in the Big 10 last fall. A good sized receiver with long arms. A possession receiver who can run the slant patterns and give a big target to the quarterback. Has good body control and is competitive going after the ball. A large catching radius. Good vision to find the cavities in the defense. An inconsistent double catcher at times. Doesn’t always catch the ball cleanly. Can polish his intermediate route running and needs to improve his base and body position as a blocker. Caught 106 balls in the two years after he transferred from Iowa Western Community College. East-West Shrine notes: Led the West in targets (11) and receptions with six. He tallied 68 yards and two touchdowns. A big strong target with long arms. Good balance and body control. A hand catcher who plucks the ball out away from his body. A willing blocker in the run game. Strong week of practices, particularly Wednesday where he took advantage of his size and run after catch ability. Was added to the Senior Bowl roster. 2015 stats: 65-882, 13.5 ypr, 3 TD. OSR:38/ 42. Sixth/seventh round. (A-32 7/8, H-9 1/2, VJ-33, SS-4.28).
