Braelon Allen, Wisconsin

Allen took college football by storm in his freshman year at 17 years old when he rushed for 1,268 yards and 12 TDs. Allen didn't take part in much at the combine, but with his build, and everything he's shown on tape, he didn't have anything left to prove. Last year, the Bills had Latavius Murray take the goal line touches from Josh Allen, now this year that job could be given to Braelon Allen, not Josh. Allen measured in at the combine at 6'1 235 lbs, and if you've seen any pictures of him at 18 years old, this kid is going to be a problem in the league.

Allen was unstoppable with the ball in his hands, and his 2,182 career yards after contact, as BadgersWire brought out, is something that could have the Bills running in the selection card on draft night. Drafting an RB of his size ensures one thing, the Bills don't have to run Josh Allen in the red zone every other play.

Allen could wind up slipping out of the third round and into round four, right into the sweet spot for the Bills on Saturday of the draft. ProFootballNetwork grades him as a Day 3 prospect with "great size and production. If that's the case, and the Bills fill the defense at that point, Braelon Allen could wind up becoming a Buffalo Bill.
