Draft Scout Jonathan Allen News
03/09/17 - Alabama Pro day: Defensive tackle Dalvin Tomlinson and wide receiver ArDarius Stewart did a little more, posting 22 and 10 repetitions in the bench press, respectively. Each is projected as a possible third-round selection by NFLDraftScout.com. While few expected any of Alabama's top prospects to compete again after such a short layoff since the Combine, it was thought that Allen, in particular, might want a second chance after a somewhat disappointing performance in Indianapolis, including a 5.0 time in the 40-yard dash after measuring just under 6-foot-3 and 286 pounds. Allen did not appear as quick or flexible as Tomlinson (6-3, 310) during arc drills that were part of Wednesday's workout, though the reigning Bednarik and Nagurski Award winner's production (69 tackles, 16.5 tackles for loss and 10.5 sacks) speaks for itself. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
03/03/17 - 2017 NFL Combine, Day 2 Takeaways: 4. Will arthritic shoulders drop Alabamaís Allen?...While Thursdayís athletic testing produced the quantitative data the combine is famous for, one of the big stories circulating around Lucas Oil Stadium was a report from NFL.comís Ian Rapoport that Alabama defensive lineman Jonathan Allen is dealing with arthritic shoulders. Allen, the No. 2 overall rated prospect on NFLDraftScout.comís board and a consensus All-American, never missed a game due to injury at Alabama but did undergo procedures on both shoulders during his time there, making his medical evaluation this week more important than any athletic test he will take. - Rob Rang & Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
02/13/17 - Alabama DE Allen adds Lombardi to trophy collection...Alabama defensive end Jonathan Allen capped his collection of college football awards Saturday by being named winner of the Rotary Lombardi Award, the Rotary Club of Houston announced. Allen was selected over three other finalists -- Heisman Trophy winning quarterback Lamar Jackson of Louisville, defensive end Myles Garrett of Texas A&M and linebacker/returner Jabrill Peppers of Michigan. "I was just in shock," Allen said after being named the winner. "Whenever you receive an award of this magnitude, it's obviously a blessing." The award is Allen's fourth of the campaign. He also won the Bronko Nagurski and Chuck Bednarik awards as the nation's top defensive player and the Ted Hendricks Award as the nation's best defensive end.
Allen, expected to be one of the top picks in the 2017 NFL draft, had 69 tackles and 10 sacks in 2016. He also returned two fumbles for touchdowns and finished seventh in the Heisman balloting. Allen joins Cornelius Bennett (1986) as the only Alabama players to win the Lombardi Award. The Lombardi Award was first given out in 1970 and has traditionally been awarded to an offensive or defensive lineman. It was expanded this season to include all positions with the mandate being that it goes to a player who best demonstrates outstanding performance while meeting the standards of former Green Bay Packers coach Vince Lombardi's brand of leadership. - The Sports Xchange
01/10/17 - Alabama star Jonathan Allen took to social media to thank the fans after the national championship game. Before that, the defensive end, who won the Nagurski Trophy and Bednarik Award as the nation's top defensive player, was his own toughest critic. Even though he had seven tackles and a sack. "What hurts me is the fact that I let the team down," Allen said. "The offense played so hard. The defense started good but we didn't finish strong. That's not what we do. "I've got to place the blame on myself. I didn't play like I should. I let the team down." Allen is projected as an early first-round NFL draft pick. He clearly took a little stock of his career afterward. - AP Sports
