Allen is a versatile, athletic player whose receiving skills are NFL ready. A team with a multi-faceted offense will have a lot of fun moving him all over the formation. Sean Payton would love him, if he were not suspended and if the Saints had early draft picks. Others offensive gurus could also find interesting roles for him: Rob Chudzinski could use him well in Carolina, and Tony Sparano could develop some interesting two tight-end sets for the Jets.
Allen should be able to contribute about 40 catches and some red zone assistance right away. Whether he grows into a Pro Bowler depends on how well he refines his routes and his blocking. For now, pencil in an upside among the second tier of NFL pass catchers.
