Jonathan Allen – Defensive Tackle – Alabama
DOB – JAN 16 1995
Height – 6’3″
Weight – 286 lbs
Plays with a ridiculous amount of strength. More explosive than combine numbers show. Can play inside or outside but put him close to the ball and let him flourish. A force getting after the Quarterback and even better against the run. High motor and squeaky clean off the field. May have the best hand technique out of any defensive lineman in the draft and knows how to use his upper body strength to get blockers off balance. NFL ready body and mind. Leader of the Alabama team.
Wish he was a little bit bigger to hold up with less questions inside. Has a lingering shoulder injury that are causing some teams to really do their due diligence. Lacks ideal length and isn’t the quickest guy on the field.
Reminds of a lot of Fletcher Cox mixed with some Aaron Donald. If he adds a few pounds and that shoulder injury checks out he could very well be one of the top interior defensive lineman in the NFL as a rookie. Couldn’t build a more powerful lineman in a lab.
