2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Dwayne Allen, TE, Clemson

Allen was a force for Clemson at tight end ever since joining the Tigers in 2009. He was just a junior in 2011, but he has the tools to excel at the next level and as a result he is leaving early. Allen played in all 14 games as a freshman, making 10 receptions for 108 yards and three touchdowns. In 2010 he hauled in 33 passes for 373 yards and one score, garnering All-ACC Second Team honors. Allen was once again an outstanding red-zone target as a junior. In 14 games the Fayetteville, NC native had 50 receptions for 598 yards and an impressive eight touchdowns.

As one might guess just from looking at his starts, Allen is a big target for quarterbacks standing at 6'4'' and 255 pounds. He has decent speed, having been clocked at 4.67 in the 40-yard dash (but that is not how is going to make his money on Sundays). Allen simply runs solid routes and has great hands. He is a sound blocker and has a significant impact in the running game. He will have to improve his speed if he is going to be a reliable pass-catcher at the next level and become a stat machine. Regardless, he can be a major contributor in the red zone and a big help to any offensive line. Allen should be a second-round selection in the 2012 draft.
