Build

Does he have prototype size? What is body type? What is growth potential?

Above the line size and length with his height and long arms. Slim and even build from top to bottom. Large frame, but has room to add to it. Had a car accident entering his freshman year - 103 stitches. Suffered a abdominal and groin injury in 2018 which caused him to miss 5 games.

Mental

Is he instinctual? Does he play with urgency?

Competitive player with adequate toughness. Will not easily go down after initial contact. Average instincts as he knows where the marker is and the distance he needs to go. Adequate effort/motor, will not stop blocking till the RB has passed him - won't give up on blocks. Holds on to his defender even though his technique may not be right.

Athleticism

Does he have the athletic traits you want?

Adequate explosiveness and speed. Isn't agile enough at the tight end position, creates minimal separation. Average body control and flexibility in and out of his breaks as well as adjusting himself when the ball is in the air. Lacks the power to be an above the line blocking TE at the next level. Must improve lower body strength and have a more explosive strike on the defender.

Technical

Does he have a refined skill set? Is he a projection or is his game developed enough to contribute early?

Average route running. His most frequent routes included shallow crossers, underneath routes off QB bootlegs, and corner/out routes. A bit stiff in and out of breaks which makes him an average route runner; however, his short-area quickness and frame allows him to create separation occasionally. Strong/adequate hands with good focus when the ball is in the air. Sees the ball in. Flashes the ability to catch well through contact. A big target for the QB. Average ball-carrier ability, not someone who will make defenders miss but can occasionally shed tackles. Above the line blocking. Has a wide base with good hand placement in the chest. Solid technique chopping feet and opening up holes for the running back. Moves his defenders back occasionally. Blocks well in space and understands blocking assignments by getting to the next level. Must improve lower body strength in order to be an effective blocking TE at the next level. Overall, he is an adequately reliable tight end who will get the job done in the running game and will make catches when he is asked to run short-interemediate routes.

Summary

What role does he play? What is his initial projection?
Allen was utilized as an inline tight end, H-back, as well as a slot receiver during his time at Iowa State. He was the primary run blocking TE while his teammate, Charlie Kolar, was used more frequently in the passing game. Overall, Allen is a depth piece that can prove to be a reliable No. 2 TE on a team with his sollid blocking skills as well as his reliable hands. Must add to his frame to be an effective blocker at the next level.
