NAME: Josh Allen

SCHOOL: Kentucky

CONFERENCE: SEC

POSITION: Edge Defender

CLASS: Senior

JERSEY: No. 41

RECRUITMENT RATING: 2-star

HT: 6’4

WT: 230 lbs

D.O.B.: N/A


PROS: Josh Allen is a fluid athlete with good straight-line speed for an edge player. Moves well in space. Has the ideal length, height and improving weight to play on the edge. Range to make plays to the perimeter. Flashes coverage ability in zone and man. Flashes of setting a strong edge and turning runs back inside.

CONS: High pad level exposes a ton of surface area as a pass rusher. Gets locked up consistently by tackles and cannot escape. Lacks pass rush moves and counters to work a plan of attack. Tons of easily neutralized rushes. Does not recognize and attack two-way gos like he should. Gets mauled at the point of attack in the run game. Pad level, power and mental processing aren’t where they need to be. Struggles mightily to disengage from blocks. Misses a lot of tackles. Needs to break down better in space. First step is average. Takes a few strides to build up to top speed, won’t threaten tackles to the corner off the snap. Bend is not where it needs to be to become a high-level cornering rusher.
