Comparison

Marcus Allen Pittsburgh Steelers

Went from 175-pound safety as he started getting recruited to a 200-pound defender as a senior who could play a hybrid role. Still capable of playing in space and covering receivers, but could also play in the box and be like an extra linebacker. Also effective as a blitzer. Lined up like a MIKE at times also. Shows burst and short-area explosion. Hits with power as well. Was able to run plays down which showed he has the speed to play strong safety or as a hybrid in college. Long-term, growing into linebacker is not out of the question though.
