    Apparently the patriots had a workout with him. Haven't heard hardly anything about but he is apparently a riser due to a good combine. He's a bigger cornerback at 6'1" and had a better vertcal jump than prince amukumara. could be a sleeper in the 4th or 5th.

    Good find. Always happy to add CB depth.

    Amukamara had a 38" vertical, Cortez Allen had a 35.5" vertical. Allen bested Amukamara in the broad jump by 1 inch.

    After looking at his combine numbers he looks like he could be a good safety candidate. He showed good strength (18 reps at 225), very good ability to cover ground (10.87 60yd), and very good agility (4.01 SS and 6.76 3 cone)

    Per Wes Bunting of the National Football Post:

    During the East-West Shrine Game he had this to say about him as well:

    Combine stats from NFL Draft Scout:

    Code:
    Combine Invite: Yes
    Height: 6012
    Weight: 197
    40 Yrd Dash: 4.50
    20 Yrd Dash: 2.50
    10 Yrd Dash: 1.48
    225 Lb. Bench Reps: 18
    Vertical Jump: 35 1/2
    Broad Jump: 10'09"
    20 Yrd Shuttle: 4.01
    3-Cone Drill: 6.76
    4.40/4.47/4.58 40 range before Combine

    Could be worth a 6th or 7th round pick. It would be interesting to know how well he tackles - might be a good special-teamer.

    I think he'll end up in the 4th - 5th rounds, and I have a feeling he's being worked out as a safety, not a pure corner. He could make a good FS, with ability to drop down and play physical against bigger wideouts. Like the player a lot.
