Josh Allen Morgan Moses Jersey , OLB School: Kentucky | Conference: SEC Experience: Senior | Age: 21Height / Weight: 6-5 / 252 lbsProjected Draft Status: Top-10NFL Comparison: Leonard Floyd College StatisticsAdditionally, here are some advanced stats, courtesy of Pro Football Focus:PFF’s end of regular season stats - “The highest-graded edge defender in the country, Allen got home with a pressure on 23.4% of his pass-rush snaps this season. Highlighted by his national-best 93.5 pass-rush grade, Allen brought in 51 total pressures that included 14 sacks, nine QB hits and an additional 28 hurries. He dropped back in coverage on 141 snaps and allowed just 130 yards on 19 targets without allowing a touchdown, and made 51 total defensive stops with missed just four tackles out of 69 attempts.”Player OverviewA lightly recruited, two-start HS prospect, who chose Kentucky over Buffalo and Monmouth University, Allen finished his career as the University of Kentucky’s record holder with 31.5 (career) sacks and 17 (single-season) sacks. As a senior, Allen was named the SEC’s Defensive Player of the Year, while also taking home the Lott IMPACT Trophy, the Bronko Nagurski Award, and the Chuck Bednarik Award. There was some question as to if Josh Allen would even play in the Citrus Bowl against Penn State, but not only did he play, he closed out his Wildcats’ career with an MVP performance, recording three sacks and a blocked field goal attempt.Here are just some of his highlights from the Citrus Bowl. Allen struggled with stuttering and school work until formally diagnosed with ADHD in college. Three of his sisters played basketball in college, including Myisha Hines-Allen, who currently is a rookie forward for the WNBA’s Washington Mystics.For more on his back-story, read NFL.com’s How Kentucky’s Josh Allen became NFL draft’s fastest-rising prospect.Athletic Traits (Pre-Combine)A first team all-state WR in high school, Allen arrived much more lanky than his listed weight. Listed at 230 pounds as a junior, he apparently is now carries 252 pounds on his 6-foot-5 frame. He appears to have long arms, and will likely “check all the boxes” with his workouts at the NFL Combine, but it will be interesting to see if he really measures as an elite athlete for the position. Athletically speaking, I don’t think he is quite at the level of former Kentucky OLB/DE Bud Dupree. I see similarities to Anthony Barr, who played on the edge at UCLA before transitioning to more of a traditional LB in the NFL. More Film Against South Carolina, Allen had three sacks, four TFL’s and numerous other pressures. The first sack was on a backside pursuit, and he almost got a safety. On the second, he was unblocked stunting inside. For the third, he third he beat the left tackle with speed and got the strip sack with one minute left in the game. Georgia had success running right at his side of the line (Georgia ended the night with 331 yards rushing).Allen had his way with Florida’s Martez Ivey, but against Jawaan Taylor, not so much.Here are a pair of film sessions. The first by PFF:The second, by Voch Lombardi:See more of Allen’s work HERE.StrengthsProductive pass rusher Tress Way Jersey , who improved each season.Likes to go for strip sack, and finished with an NCAA best five forced fumbles.Competent in coverage with the lateral agility required of an modern NFL LB. Prototypical height/weight/length for the position.Can beat opponents with speed rush, and with hand usage. WeaknessesAt times, Allen doesn’t play to his size, and still appears to be too finesse.Wasn’t always able to get the QB to the ground (especially Nick Fitzgerald). Can get washed out against the run, including by Tight Ends (Georgia, Vanderbilt).Occasionally plays too tall, and needs to get lower when bending the edge. Needs to more quickly identify and disengage from blocks.Doesn’t always have a counter, if initial move fails (stonewalled by Gators RT Jawaan Taylor).He has the athleticism, but will he be able to hang with backs and tight ends that have nuance to their routes? What Others Are Saying Kentucky linebacker’s coach, Brad White - “From a run-game standpoint, he’s gotten really strong with his hands. He’d always been a good pass rusher and could always win with speed. Now he can win with the added weight and strength. He didn’t necessarily do that in the past. Now he can control tight ends and tackles. He can control his primary gap, tear off the blocker, then go make a play in another gap.”Senior Bowl executive director, Jim Nagy called Allen one of the most improved players in the nation. ”The knock on him was that he played with too much finesse. He would jump around blocks and played like a bulk-deficient player,” Nagy said. “Now he’s a different guy.”Draft Analyst, Tony Pauline wrote “Allen has the measurables and computer numbers NFL teams desire in a front-seven player and has shown a great deal of development in his game. He’s a forceful linebacker with the ability to get pressure up the field and rush the quarterback. But Allen is much more than a one-dimensional defender. He’s also a solid run defender who can make plays at the line of scrimmage or in pursuit, and his ball skills on passing downs are improving.”This week, NFL.com’sLance Zierlein had the Cardinals taking Josh Allen number one overall. ESPN’s Mel Kiper ranked Allen as his No. 2 player overall in his most recent mock draft. Bleacher Report’s Matt Miller has compared Allen to Arizona Cardinals DE Chandler Jones.How He Would Fit On The Redskins The Redskins have some decisions to make at outside linebacker.Preston Smith is a free agent,Ryan Kerrigan is aging, and Ryan Anderson has not yet proven to be either players long-term replacement. Allen would have been one of the most highly regarded prospects attending the Senior Bowl, but he pulled out last second. Other than at quarterback, it is rare for probably first round prospects to participate in the Senior Bowl. If he tests out as an elite athlete at the NFL Combine, he could end up a Top 10 Pick, and be off the board by the time the Redskins are on the clock. Personally, I don’t view him as a slam dunk top-10 pick.Unlike many 3-4 OLB prospects who were undersized DE’s in college, and face a major transition to LB in the pros, Allen is already a stand-up OLB. Allen would provide the Redskins with an outside backer, with the skill set to rush the passer, defend the run, and drop into coverage.Some have argued that Kentucky did not use him enough as a pass-rusher, but it is his experience and comfort level in coverage that distinguish him from other edge rushers in this draft class.In terms of usage in college, potential draft position, and possible NFL role Cheap Da'Ron Payne Jersey , I compare him to a player like Leonard Floyd.Floyd displayed similar versatility while at Georgia, but has yet to, and may never develop into a dominating pass-rusher in the NFL.Like Floyd, I see Allen as a multifaceted 3-4 OLB, who can be a piece of a team’s pass-rush plan, but may never put up the pass-rushing number of guys like Von Miller or Khalil Mack. Khalil Hodge, ILBSchool: Buffalo | Conference: MAC Experience: Senior | Age: 21Height / Weight: 6-1 / 235 lbsProjected Draft Status: Round 3 - 5NFL Comparison: Mason FosterCollege Statistics Player OverviewKhalil Hodge has had tremendous production in his early career and many view him as a mid to late round gem who is being overlooked because of the level of competition in the Mid-American Conference (MAC). He had an astounding 262 tackles his senior season at St. Mary’s High School in Stockton, CA. As a sophomore at Buffalo, he had a team-high 123 tackles on the year to rank eighth in school history and second in UB’s FBS era for a single season and was named All-MAC Second Team. As a Junior, he set the school FBS-era record for tackles in a season with 154, led the Mid-American Conference ranking second in the nation in tackles, and was named All-MAC First Team. He again posted excellent numbers as a senior with 138 tackles (7.5 for loss).But there’s more to Khalil Hodge than his college production, and a look at his background shows what drives him to excel on the football field. Khalil grew up the older of two brothers. His younger brother Kadeem was considered the more gifted athlete and was on his way to becoming a track star. Khalil wasn’t as fast as Kadeem, but was extremely hard working and physical, and found a natural fit in football. It sounds like competition with Kadeem constantly reminded Khalil how hard he’d have to work to succeed as an athlete. There’s a very informative article here that offers a deeper look into his life. Below are some especially revealing quotes about Khalil from that article.“[Khalil] was the older brother, but his little brother didn’t have to work at it as much. It came natural to him,” Howard Hodge (Khalil’s father) said. “Khalil would have to out-work him. They really pushed each other.”“What you’re seeing now has come from his hard work,” Howard Hodge said. “Growing up, when his peers were in the house playing PlayStation, Khalil would be outside running hills or playing pickup football in the park. His favorite video game was film study... When we started watching film together, I’d teach him gaps and assignments. As he developed, he started really having a passion for the Xs and Os.”“He’s the quarterback of the defense,” said Tyree Jackson, quarterback of the offense and Hodge’s sophomore year roommate. “That guy loves football. He’s competitive and he does everything right, the little things. He’s setting guys up, getting them lined up right.”“He’s a perfectionist,” senior linebacker Jordan Collier said. “He’s very keyed on the minute details. He really wants to be the best player he can be. He’s a hard, hard worker.”Sadly, Khalil’s younger brother Kadeem was shot and killed in December of 2017. The death really shook Khalil, but he responded by throwing himself into football. It seems that Khalil used the tragedy as motivation to continue to perfect his game, playing for his brother as well as himself. Khalil Hodge is an obsessively hard worker who has lived football since early childhood, brought up by a father who seems equally obsessive about football. Khalil may not have elite speed, but he has just about every other trait you’d want from an ILB and he is constantly improving his game.StrengthsTremendous college production. High football IQ, ability to diagnose plays early and is rarely wrong.QB of the defense. Gets other players into position and calls the defense.Takes good angles as a tackler. High motor Matthew Ioannidis Jersey , doesn’t wear down at the end of games.High effort, never quits on a play.Good awareness in coverage. Will not give up passes on busted coverage and is a good fit for a zone coverage scheme.Very gap sound in run defense. There were several examples in his tape where he did an excellent job correctly reading the gap the RB would hit, and Hodge got there first for a TFL.Excellent character. Leader on and off the field.Quick to shed blockers and pursue the ball.A very healthy player, not much of an injury history.WeaknessesLacks elite speed and athleticism.Gets pushed back if his base isn’t set (which is true for a lot of players).Sticky tackler, but not a thumper. Not much gets by him, but he’s not going to drive people into the ground like Reuben Foster or Darius Leonard. This could be seen as a positive as it will keep him healthy, but I like having at least one thumper who sets a tone for the defense.Played in the MAC against lesser competition.Let’s see his work:Comparing the videos above, there’s a noticeable improvement in his play recognition and decisiveness from 2017 to 2018. A lot of the little details, like angles of pursuit and tackling technique, seem improved too. Even though statistically he had a better year in 2017, I think he played better in 2018 in the videos above.More about Khalil Hodge:How He Would Fit On The RedskinsIt’s tough to assess a player like Khalil Hodge without Combine measurements because he played against lesser competition in college. From what I see on tape, Hodge is a good NFL backup with the potential to grow into a starting role over time. He doesn’t have the physical tools to be a 1st round pick, but he has the intelligence and work ethic to get better with practice and eventually earn a starting role. I’ve seen draft projections for him anywhere from the 2nd to 7th round, and it reminds me a bit of Quinn Blanding, who some projected to be a mid round pick, but ended up undrafted due to lack of athleticism. I think Hodge would be a worthwhile investment for the Redskins due to our need of ILB depth. Right now, it seems likely that the Redskins will be releasing Zach Brown in the offseason, possibly Mason Foster as well. Either of those moves will leave a gaping hole at the ILB position, with only young and unproven NFL players (Shaun Dion Hamilton, Josh Harvey-Clemons, maybe Reuben Foster) to fill it. In addition, many of these players have injury histories. Acquiring more ILB depth (and possibly starters) in the upcoming draft will be important. I haven’t watched enough college film to rank all the top prospects for the upcoming draft, but a 4th round pick feels right for Hodge. We don’t have a 4th round pick right now, but if he tests reasonably well at the Combine, our 3rd round Comp pick might be well spent on him. Otherwise, he’d be a bargain in the 5th round. I compared him to Mason Foster earlier and a lot of people may want to pass based on that comparison, but Mason Foster has been a reasonably solid starter over much of his career (only really seeming to slow down this year). I don’t see ILB as our biggest need anymore; EDGE, LG, CB, QB, and Safety are all probably bigger needs, and it’s unlikely we get a super athletic ILB outside of the top rounds. As such, a player like Hodge who is hard working and well-rounded would be a quality add in the later rounds. Custom Miami Dolphins Jerseys
