Jason Allen was a 1st round draft pick in 2006 by Nick Saban.
While Saban might not have been the best NFL coach, he certainly had/has a great eye for talent.
Jason Allen finally won a starting CB job this year in Miami, beating out all competition in the pre-season. He has had 3 ints so far this year, and certainly does not lack talent.
Just like former first round pick Ernie Sims, this opportunity seems based on a lack of "fit" for a defensive scheme, and a great chance to pick up a talented player for peanuts.
I say go get him! While it may seem that I have a perpetual hard-on for other teams' first round draft picks, I think that is a good thing, I mean, they were first round picks for a reason.....except Jamarcus Russel....he just sucks.
What do you think? Could our secondary use him? Does he fit what we do? Could he be a beneficial and productive member of our secondary?
