RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Allen will compete with second-year player Earl Wolff to start alongside Malcolm Jenkins at safety.
A former second-round pick and a promising starter at safety, a patellar tendon tear in his rookie year has since derailed Allen's ascent. Still, he looks like he should start or serve as third safety for Philly in 2013.
A 2010 patella tendon tear left Allen's athleticism compromised for a disappointing 2011 season in which he totaled just 59 tackles and two interceptions in 15 games, but there's hope that he'll get better in 2012 as his knee gets back into shape. Still, Allen's skill set is that of a coverage safety, meaning he's not a great bet to post a high tackle total.
Cover safety doesn't figure to make enough tackles for most IDP owners.
Allen is the favorite to start at free safety.
