    Should be a nice compliment to Hall. Strong AF. Size is good for a 20 year old. Anyone know how his hands are?

    Now make sure you give him the rock in I-formation and don’t turn him into a glorified scatback out of the shotgun.

    Nice wiggle and burst for a big kid.

    We needed a power back to complement Breece and Izzy. I like this a lot.

    A monster that’s not even legally allowed to drink yet and complements the star RB perfectly. Very very good pick.

    Just what we needed. We were abysmal in short yardage last year. And we don’t want to make a habit of AR sneaking for the tough yards.

    Is that why we didn't pick Jaylen Wright? Seems like pretty highly rated and was there at 121. Just wondering. Went to Miami instead.

    No one wants to say this part out loud but Breece Hall is due a new contract in two years… we know how that goes with RBs.

    Allen has the tools to be an RB1. Wouldn’t be shocked at all if this is just as much about the future as it is today.

    I thought so. I think they had Allen in their radar.

    Reminds me of Marshawn Lynch...with a touch of OJ thrown in there

    He was explosive in an offense that provides massive gaps for runners because of the wide splits the receivers play with and down field nature of the passing game.

    Not saying it should hurt the player, however I don’t think there was a ton on tape that translates to good NFL running back for Wright. I think he tops out as a kick returner.

    Well he's a big fast dude that runs through people, but very few RBs are even close to as violent a runner as Marshawn Lynch was and this is no exception.

    I like this pick. Kind of an old-school runner. But he can give Breece some breaks and also soften up the defense.
