My feeling is that Allen is a good athlete for a 3-4 DE, and I view NE's DE's as kind of hybrids - somewhere between 3-4 and 4-3 DE's.
I agree, he's more of a 3/4 DE. But for arguements sake, let's say he does get drafted by Miami? I can see the new coaching staff finding playing time for him, especially in run situations?

Zach Allen may not test to be the most athletic guy or draft prospect. But he seems like the type of player, you can never count out. He has a motor that never quits and has a lunch pale type mentality. He's stout against the run. And plays to the whistle. Jimmy Johnson once said, Zach Thomas may not run a 4.0 forty, but his instincts are 4.0. This his how I'd describe Zach Allen. The guy is just A Football Player!!! He may slip, who knows, but he may also, outplay some of the more highly touted DE in this class.

I wouldn’t argue with the outproduces his draft slot take.
