    That is good news because depending on what happens during FA we could grab him to play safety

    His time was officially a 4.39

    He also ran a 3.81 short shuttle, which is ungodly, as it's considered a very good time if you even break a 4.00 flat.

    It appears that he has recovered from his injury physically, but has he recovered mentally

    Assuming Fuller starts at FS, he would have to play SS and I dont believe he is suited for SS

    Id love to have allen, but our major concern in the second is LB. I admit that our safteys were horrible last year, but I think that alot of that had to do with the personel around them. 1. LBs that didnt lay the wood (and just generally suck excusing KB) so the safeties had to be cautious of the run. The RB just got to the secondary far to often. 2. We had rookies at the corner back position. What makes a great secondary is that everybody understands, believes and knows that each has their man or zone. The safeties were trying to help the corners cover and ended up getting burned them selves. I would at least give Williams, Thompson, Fuller, and Randel another season b4 i cleaned house.

    Allen looks good, I'd take a quality safety or LB in round two, whichever is best value. Depends who drops, but I'd gladly take allen, he looked great until his injury, and looks like he'll be fine...

    the thing that worries me about allen is that he didnt do any of the position drills.
