Jonathan Allen amongst PFF 2nd yr players primed for a breakout yr

Recommended Posts

DI Jonathan AllenWashington Redskins
2017 Overall Grade: 81.3* 

After playing at least 400 defensive snaps in his final three years at ‘Bama, Washington Redskins interior defensive lineman Jonathan Allen suffered a season-ending Lisfranc injury just 159 snaps into his NFL career. Adding insult to injury, Allen had been amidst a three-game tear of opposing offensive linemen when his misfortune struck.

In the three games prior to injury (Weeks 3, 4 & 6), Allen recorded 11 total pressures and five defensive stops, the former of which tied him for seventh among all interior defenders. He also earned 79.3-plus overall grades in all three contests.

Allen has all of the tools necessary to develop into one of the better interior defenders in the NFL if he’s able to stay healthy, especially when given the opportunity to start in Washington’s talent-rich trenches with Matt Ioannidis, Ryan Kerrigan and Preston Smith.

Gotta agree, and I think it's an easy pick. Healthy, he's a beast.
