Re: OFFICAL 2012 NFL COMBINE THREAD (anything and everything combine)
[quote user="Neverend"]I'd have to respectfully disagree about Allen being more quick off the line than Fleener. I think if Fleener participated more at the combine he would have absolutely had a faster 10-yrd dash than any TE not named Orson Charles. Allen has good quickness off the line but it seems like defenders have success when they hit him at the line and get physical him (for arguments sake, that could be more of a technique thing). If he were so quick I'd like to see him elude press coverage more often.[/quote] Allen has great seperation skills, and ESPN"s Scouts Inc broke down all the TOP players at there positons and Dwayne Allen was 3rd in Seperation Skills, which is instrumental when your qb needs to get rid of the ball quickly...</P>

<DIV class=mod-content>ESPN's Scouts Inc. broke down the top NFL prospects at each offensive position heading into the NFL combine, and it looks like the ACC could have some stars at wide receiver and/or tight end.
When it comes to ball skills, former Virginia Tech receiver <FONT color=#225db7>Danny Coale</FONT> ranked among <FONT color=#225db7>the top five receivers at the combine</FONT>. Scouts Inc. also ranked the receivers by their big-play abilities, and Georgia Tech's <FONT color=#225db7>Stephen Hill</FONT> ranked No. 4, followed by Miami's <FONT color=#225db7>Travis Benjamin</FONT>, who was tied for fifth.
Former Clemson tight end <FONT color=#225db7>Dwayne Allen</FONT> was No. 3 in the "<FONT color=#225db7>separation skills</FONT>" category, while Miami's <FONT color=#225db7>Chase Ford</FONT> was No. 3 in big-play abilities, and NC State's <FONT color=#225db7>George Bryan</FONT> was No. 2 in competitiveness.
Two of the ACC's offensive linemen were also featured, as Florida State's <FONT color=#225db7>Zebrie Sanders</FONT> was <FONT color=#225db7>the No. 3 tackle in run blocking</FONT>, and Wake's <FONT color=#225db7>Joe Looney</FONT> was the No. 2 guard in awareness.</DIV>
