What to Watch

Quarterbacks, receivers and tight ends will be going through athletic testing along with position drills.

Austin Allen

Today is the day we get to see Allen look to set himself apart from the rest of the tight end class. Allen has had a big year already breaking Nebraska records, winning the Big Ten Tight End of the Year and then went on to stand out at the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.

Allen already weighed in and now we get to see what he can do on the field. What I’m really looking to see is his speed and quickness results. The top tight ends in the NFL all ran 4.63 or faster. But I’d be happy for Allen if he ran anything under a 4.79. Listed below are the averages for tight ends that have been drafted over the last five years.

1.63 in 10 yard split
4.37 in Short Shuttle
7.14 in 3 Cone
33 12 in Vertical Leap
9’09” in Broad Jump
