2011 Denver Broncos Draft Cameos: Allen Bailey

Defensive End - Allen Bailey, Miami

Height:  6'3"
Weight:  285
40yd:  4.77

Interest Level:

Private Workout:  Yes
Private Visit to Team Facility:  Yes
Attended Proday:  No
Other:  -

Quick Take:

A naturally strong 4-3 end who has experience moving inside on occasion.  Was part of a heavy rotation and so always was playing fresh.  Long arms, big hands, and seems to enjoy engaging the OL in the trench.  May project to a 2-gap player.  Can be pushed and turned around, almost by surprise, and doesn't seem to have a good feel for what is going on around him in the trenches.  Doesn't play at full speed, appears to be watching blocks develop.  Not the first player across the line.  Reminds me of Ryan McBean, somewhat raw and hesitant.

Where He Goes in the Draft:

Bottom of 2nd round

What is Denver's Interest In Him?


It is hard to tell how well he might adapt to very specific roles on a defense, such as a standing rush DL in a 5-2 nickel alignment, and so extra workouts were no doubt called for by Denver to try to hash out some of these elements of his game.  He will probably get drafted for raw strength and speed, but Denver should sit tight and see if he can slip onto their list at #67

[Note:  All players in the table are ranked by overall grade within their round grouping, however, the round groupings are based on where this player will likely be drafted based on where teams are currently selecting in the draft.  Therefore a player is ranked within a group by his level of ability, but players in nearby groupings may have higher or lower actual grades, despite being in a different group.  Confusing enough for you? --Styg]
