The KC Chiefs select....
Jeff Allen/G/ Illinois
Allen has been a starter for four years on the offensive line for Illinois. With his size and experience playing on both the right and left sides, he will have good value as a backup at the next level. He has decent athletic ability and strength but knows how to keep defenders from beating him. He is likely worth a sixth- or seventh-round pick.
Strengths Allen will make it as a pro because of his versatility. He has shown that he can play four of the five positions on the line (all but center). He tends to wait for defenders to come to him in pass protection, but is able to use his hands to keep them at bay. He has decent footwork in his pass set and when in space pulling. He is also a good mirror/shield blocker. He doesn't power his way upfield very often, but his man rarely gets behind him.
Weaknesses Allen is not a flashy blocker and is slightly slow at times. He is a bit of a 'tweener, excelling at neither the tackle nor guard spots. Opponents might be able to exploit his comparative lack of athleticism.
