Like many of you, my reaction to the Kansas City Chiefs drafting OT Jeff Allen at No. 44 was, "Who?" Admittedly, the Illinois tackle was not on my pre-draft radar.
However, a quick review of a few scouting reports and reading your comments, I think the Kansas City Chiefs have made a solid pick. Allen, it appears at least, will not have a problem playing multiple positions on the offensive line. If you're not able to draft a franchise lineman, one who can rotate along the offensive line is in my opinion the next best option.
If you're still not sure on Allen, and you're not ready to vote Not Sure, our Illinois blog Hail To The Orange is taking your questions about Allen's pros and cons.
So let's get the initial Jeff Allen to the Chiefs approval poll out of the way. Vote!
