Braelon Allen owns the second-highest career dominator rating in the class (28%) after a lustrous career at Wisconsin. And he dominated since he first drew the starting job back in 2021 when he rushed for nearly 1,300 rushing yards and 12 TDs - en route to a 29% dominator rating. Allen achieved seven consecutive games with at least 100 rushing yards in his first season as a Badger.
He continued to find success over the next two seasons, although he never eclipsed the lofty expectations he set as a freshman at 17 years old. Regardless, his body of work is one of the best in the 2024 RB Draft Class, as is his average yards per play/snap (2.99).
And his size is rare to find among RBs nowadays at 6-foot-1 and 235 pounds. It's not quite Derrick Henry-level big, but it's as close as we have seen a highly-touted prospect enter the league at this size.
David Montgomery, Melvin Gordon and Henry were the first RBs Allen reminded me of after watching him on film. He runs with a ton of power and doesn't seem to lack the requisite speed for NFL purposes despite his size.
Allen also just turned 20 years old this past January. Certainly, possible he has massive room to grow given his youth. He did not run the 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine, but jumped in the vertical and broad tests. Neither were overly impressive with a 32″ vertical (30th percentile) and 117″ broad jump (35th percentile). The fact that he didn't ever run a 40 creates concern that he's actually much slower than on tape, but he's probably just being smart to not do anything that could hurt his draft capital.
Allen would go in Round 4 to the New York Jets, to compete for the No. 2 RB spot behind Breece Hall.

Braelon Allen shows off ability as pass catcher during OTAs and minicamp

Braelon Allen reportedly displayed "plenty of ability” as a pass-catcher during Jets OTAs and minicamp.

Fantasy Impact

Allen did not command a huge role as a pass catcher in college, but it appears he could take on a third down role in the Jets backfield behind Breece Hall. He'll be a late-round flier in fantasy drafts and a handcuff behind Hall.
