Scouting Report

OVERVIEW

After handling the field goal kicking and kickoff duties as a junior, Allen added punting to his resume as a senior and developed into of the best special teamers in school history. He struggled juggling all three jobs over the first month of the 2016 season, making just four of his first eight field goal attempts and missing three straight including two misses that almost cost them the Wisconsin game and put him on the bench. However, Allen rebounded well, making the final 15 field goals to cap his Michigan career. He finished with an 82.2 field goal percentage, falling just short of the school-record (Bob Bergeron, 82.9-percent).

As a punter, Allen was much more consistent in 2016 with 44.4-percent of his punts landing inside the opponents 20-yard line. He earned All-Big Ten Honorable Mention honors as a kicker, but landed on the Second Team as a punter. Regardless if he is drafted, Allen will have a chance to make a NFL roster as a punter and kickoff wrangler.

STRENGTHS: Versatile experience, handling field goals, punts and kickoffs as a senior. Enough thump on his kickoffs to reach the end zone with 60.7-percent of his kickoffs resulting in touchbacks in 2016. Improved accuracy as a senior with 24 of his 54 punts (44.4-percent) landing inside the 20-yard line. Clean snap-to-punt motion to get the ball out and up. Was benched as a field goal kicker after three straight misses, but showed the mental toughness to get back on track, making his final 15 field goal attempts. Perfect 99-for-99 on point-after attempts. Handled the elements well.

WEAKNESSES: Average-at-best leg strength. Will struggle to handle full-time field goal duties in the NFL with only one career made field goal of 50+ yards. Only one season as the full-time punter only two career punts entering the 2016 season.
