RB Allen boosts stock at Georgia Tech’s pro day

Published on March 13, 2011 by     Seahawk Fanatic

With representatives from 15 teams, RB Anthony Allen helped his stock at Georgia Tech’s pro day on Wednesday.

Taken through a workout by Rams RB coach Sylvester Croom, Allen looked good catching the ball and should end up being a late-round pick.

QB Josh Nesbitt wanted a chance to show what he can do as a running back, but that didn’t happen because they needed him to throw passes. He’ll get another opportunity to prove his ability as a runner, but he’s a very good athlete. Historically, other guys have made the transition from quarterback to other positions. He might also get a look as a safety and will likely be a sixth- or seven-round pick.

The event took place indoors, on a fast surface. Here are some other notables:

Allen (6-1, 222) – He had 40-yard times of 4.59 and 4.65 seconds. He stood his other numbers from the combine.

CB Mario Butler (6 5/8, 184) – He posted a 4.56 and 4.59 40 to go with a 4.49 short shuttle. He also had a 33 1/2 vertical and 10-5 broad, while standing on his other combine numbers.

LB Anthony Egbuniwe (6-4 3/8, 256) – He put up times of 5.06 and 4.99 in the 40, a 4.53 short shuttle and 7.51 three-cone drill. He also had a 32 1/2 vertical, 10-foot broad jump and did 23 reps on the bench.

LB Brad Jefferson (6/1 7/8, 240) – He had a 4.75 and 4.74 40, a 4.49 short shuttle and 7.62 three-cone. He also posted a 33 1/2 vertical, 10-foot broad jump and did 27 reps on the bench.

Nesbitt (6 3/4, 212) – He had 40 times of 4.59 and 4.67, a 4.10 short shuttle and 7.24 three-cone. He also posted a 34 1/2 vertical, 10-broad jump and did 19 reps on the bench.

DB Jerrard Tarrant (6 1/2, 204) – He posted a 4.50 and 4.59 in the 40, a 4.37 short shuttle and stood on his other numbers from the combine.
