    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...

    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 Danny Coale ranked among the top five receivers at the combine. Scouts Inc. also ranked the receivers by their big-play abilities, and Georgia Tech's Stephen Hill ranked No. 4, followed by Miami's Travis Benjamin, who was tied for fifth.

    Former Clemson tight end Dwayne Allen was No. 3 in the "separation skills" category, while Miami's Chase Ford was No. 3 in big-play abilities, and NC State's George Bryan was No. 2 in competitiveness.

    Two of the ACC's offensive linemen were also featured, as Florida State's Zebrie Sanders was the No. 3 tackle in run blocking, and Wake's Joe Looney was the No. 2 guard in awareness.

    I feel like Allen is definitely the top TE in the class and I hope we can get him.

    -solid blocker
    -great route running
    -gets of jams with ease
    -insane acrobatic catches

    In my opinion he is definitely better than Fleener.

The dudes got ups! Can't wait to see his vertical..

    Cordy Glenn is a freaking monster! Dude busted out 31reps on the bench with his very long arms(long arms makes it tougher to do many reps obviously, for example David Molk did 41reps with his short arms).. The GA boys are making noise early on with Orson Charles getting most reps outta TE's and Glenn putting up fine performance with his very long arms... Mike Adams had 19reps with a tad shorter arms, to give u guys a idea....

    You know who was number 1 in separation skills?...Fleener

    I personally gauruntee that Allen doesn't go in the first....more like mid 2nd to early 3rd. The guy has below average size and only average athleticism.

    I do think Fleener has a higher chance of going in the 1st because more of the teams who need a TE are pro style teams. Personally, I think Atlanta might have their sights on him since Gonzales is showing his age and has hinted at this being his last year.

    And, if we want a guy to fill just a pro style TE role then I do hope we take Fleener.

    But, if we want a guy who can be a tight end and ocassionaly split out or play h-back to help fill the hole that a possibly departing MM would leave, then I think Allen serves that role better.

    I would not complain about either player to be honest.
