Allen Bailey scouting report

Allen Bailey DT Miami FL
Ht: 6’3″

Wt: 285

Elite athlete for his size; a converted linebacker. Experience at both end and tackle. Prototypical skill set for a 3-4 defensive end. Tons of experience; saw significant playing time throughout his four years at Miami. Good overall strength. Shows a decent bull rush.
Career underachiever. Never came close to living up his full potential. Effort may be an issue. Struggles at times against the run. Doesn’t have the size to be a dominant run defender. Suffered a stress fracture in his back in high school.
Bailey has a ton of potential, but it’s hard to overlook the fact that he rarely played up to it at Miami. With his size and athleticism he should have been dominant in the ACC. Purely based on skill he should be a 1st-round pick, but he plays like a 3rd or 4th round prospect. As a result, he’ll probably come off the board somewhere in between. The upside is there, but I wouldn’t rely on him for anything. He’s a boom-or-bust prospect who will either be a steal or a non-factor.
