Scout and Spartan Digest looks at former Michigan State center Jack Allen as he prepares for the upcoming NFL combine and draft in our prospect preview.

NFL DRAFT PREVIEW

Jack Allen 
COLLEGE: Michigan State Spartans
H
T/WT: 6-2 / 296 lbs.
PROJECTION: 3RD Round

ANALYSIS

Allen is build more on the stocky side but can use that to his advantage at the next level.  While he can struggle against longer defenders, he'll be able to match-up with NFL defensive tackles and nose guards who are more bulk than length.

Tought, hard-nosed player, Allen uses his wrestling background to understand leverage.  Solid in his technique, Allen does not have long arms but does a solid job in setting up in a solid base with an above average punch. Allen is also a solid student of the game understanding where he needs to be on each play.  Must continue to get stronger at the point of attack.  Plays very good in space especially zone-blocking schemes.
