Jonathan Allen

1)  Jonathan Allen  –  Alabama  –  (6’3” / 294)

A first-team Parade All-American and five-star recruit out of Stone Bridge High School (VA), Allen turned down offers from multiple top college football programs to play for Alabama. He quickly became part of the defensive line rotation as a freshman, collecting 15 tackles (3.0 for loss) and forcing one fumble in 12 games, before landing a starting role on the Crimson Tide defense in his second season. His 32 total stops (11.0 for loss), 5.0 sacks, one pass breakup, and one blocked kick in 2014 were enough to earn him first-team AP All-SEC honors as a sophomore. Allen was even more dominant in 2015, finishing with 36 total tackles, leading the team with 14.5 stops for lost yardage and 12.0 sacks, adding four pass breakups, and forcing two fumbles. He was named first-team All-SEC for the second straight season, but (read more…)

Good morning, afternoon or evening; wherever you may be! The mailbag is back but before we dig in, how about a little love for our video team? The amount of videos produced for 2017’s Draft (coming to my town of Philadelphia, by the way…so get ready for a house party!) climbs daily. We’re lucky to have them, so take advantage of their work and watch!  Every week I’ll be collecting questions and each Thursday I’ll be answering those questions here on a regular basis. Question submissions can be submitted through social media with the hashtag #AskNDTonDB.

This week’s mailbag is a fun blend of questions, a little bit of starting your own scouting efforts, a little bit of 2017 class and more.

@NDTScouting @draftbreakdown favorite player that you consider underrated in this draft class so far? #AskNDTonDB

1)  Dawuane Smoot  –  Illinois  –  (6’3” / 265)

A three-star recruit out of Groveport Madison High (OH), Smoot was named his team’s Defensive MVP in both his junior and senior seasons.  He also earned three varsity letters and competed at the national level in track (discus, hurdles, and shot put). He played in just seven games as a true freshman at Illinois in 2013, posting a modest eight tackles and one sack. He saw action in every game in 2014, collecting 33 tackles (7.5 for loss), including 2.5 sacks, and batting down two passes. Smoot racked up 40 total tackles and broke up two passes as a junior.

Road Trip Update: A summer quest to add film of every 2017 NFL draft prospect

Written by Alex Sibo on July 27, 2016

Capture

With the 2016 NFL Draft well in the books, it’s time to start looking forward to the upcoming season of college football and the new class of prospects likely to emerge from the pack.

The following project is my effort to create a pre-season guide to the 2017 NFL draft by personally creating one new video for every potentially draftable prospect over the summer. As the map below indicates, I’ve conceptualized this project as a “road trip,” posting videos on a school-by-school basis in geographical order.

The pages below are organized by region with the most recent videos on the front page; graduate transfers are denoted with an asterisk (*) and listed under their former team, with the new school in parentheses. Check back frequently – page will be updated daily!
