2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

Allen quietly continues to impress as he heads into his fourth season in the league and is set to start at strong safety again for the Falcons. Last season he notched 90 tackles, three passes defensed and two interceptions in 16 games. While he's not the flashiest player, Allen only failed to record less than four tackles in one game last season, and his 1,101 snaps gave him the highest defensive snap count on the team. If he continues to grow in Dan Quinn's defense, Allen could be primed for a breakout season.

2016

Allen started at free safety for the Falcons in 2015, racking up 69 tackles, three interceptions and a sack over the course of 15 games. He's expected to anchor the position again this season, and he should benefit now that he's got a year of Dan Quinn's system under his belt. 70 to 80 tackles and a few interceptions seems like an attainable target for Allen this season.

2015

Allen will contend for the starting free safety role as training camp begins. He'll battle with Charles Godfrey and Kemal Ishmael for that honor, but the winner will certainly have plenty opportunities to put up big defensive numbers in a defense that's hoping to improve on a disastrous 2014 campaign.
