BSMW SUMMARY (as of 4/15/07)
The Patriots have talked to a ton of first day wide receivers, including Allison, who will visit Foxboro before the draft. Allison appears to be a quick, exceptional athlete with a lot of natural receiving tools, particularly hands and body control. He is said to have the explosiveness and vision to be a downfield threat, as well as a dangerous runner after the catch. Blocks well. Used as runner and passer on gadget plays. Though he has good height, the profiles fret about his lack of strength and bulk. Apparently still raw as a receiver, he is slow to read coverages. The profiles all questioned how quickly he can come up to speed as a pro. Though a senior, has only two years of D1 experience after transferring from junior college. His attitude and effort are in question; has a reputation for taking plays off when the ball isn’t coming his way. The mocks place Allison squarely in the third round. Even after loading up on receivers in free agency, New England isn’t set there over the long term. This year’s draft class is considered a good one, which means the Pats probably have better options than Allison, even in the third round.
