Pick 229 Seahawks select Brian Allen, CB Utah
The Seattle Seahawks need to show the LOB that they are serious about their commitment to force all position groups to compete. The Seahawks can do that by taking their third DB of the draft. I profiled Allen in Mock 4.0:
"Allen is a prototypical Seattle Seahawks corner. He stands at 6 foot 3, with 34 inch arms. Allen ran a 4.48 40-yard dash, and even benched 225 pounds 15 times. He also ran an excellent 3-cone drill, running it in 6.64 second. Much like current Seahawks corner, Sherman, Allen began his career as a wide receiver. Because of the late transition, Allen needs to improve his tackling quickly. However, Pete Carroll will see Allen as somebody who hasn’t had time to learn any bad habits. The Seahawks belief that they can coach up anybody makes Allen’s tool set very intriguing. After all, you can’t teach length."
