Dynasty Rookie Draft Outlook

Jaylen Wright

Wright has “run away from you” type of speed. A downhill bowling ball that consistently looks like he has been shot out of a cannon. He pauses at the line as he surveys the scene and finds a crease. While that could appear to be indecision, I think it’s more of a watered-down version of Le’Veon Bell’s style. Wright has the immediate burst to more than makeup for the quick pause. Wright pin balls off defenders in the second level. Once he gets to the second level of a defense, it’s usually game over. He offers more finishing power to his runs than maybe his stature would suggest. He consistently falls forward and earns every blade of grass. Wright holds up well in pass pro. With a solid, strong base, he has no problem upending pass-rushing defenders. He had 59 pass-pro snaps last season and only allowed one QB hit and zero sacks. His skill in this area will allow him to earn more passing down reps than his route running chops would suggest. He’s a check-down option only in the passing game. Wright has solid enough hands with an 88.2% catch rate and only two drops from his 34 collegiate targets.

Braelon Allen

Allen likely slots in as the early down thunder component to a committee. Allen is a volume-compiling grinding thumper back. Allen has a strong leg drive and can lower his shoulder and maul a defender. Once he gets a head of steam, defenders have to wrap him well, or they slide off him like water. He’ll be at his best in the NFL in a gap/power run game scheme. The aim should be to get Allen moving downhill immediately. Once Allen is into the second level of a defense, his combination of power and nimble feet really plays up. He has impressive footwork and lateral agility for his size to compensate for an average burst. Allen can churn out chunk plays with his lateral agility and power, but you won’t see many home runs in the NFL as his long speed isn’t there. Allen has decent bend, but don’t expect him to change directions once he’s moving downhill wildly. Once this train gets rolling, he can bend onto a side track, but you won’t see acrobatic start/stop theatrics. Allen is a functional pass catcher. He was utilized on check-downs and pop passes in college, so I don’t expect him to develop into a priority pass game weapon in the NFL.
