The Citadel’s Cortez Allen will be attending the 2011 NFL Combine. Allen impressed NFL Scouts so much during last week’s 86th Annual East-West Shrine Game to earn an invitation to the 2011 NFL Combine.
Allen will be one of more than 300 athletes to attend the Combine. It will be held from February 23rd to March 1st in Indianapolis, Indiana. Front office executives from each NFL team will be on hand to scout the athletes in order to see where they stand for the upcoming NFL draft.
Allen was a 2010 All-Conference second-team selection. He was also the only Southern Conference player to play in last week’s East-West Shrine Game. He was tied on the team with 5 pass breakups, while having 22 tackles and two interceptions.
Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Andre Roberts was the last Citadel player to be invited to the combine. Robert participated in the 2010 NFL Scouting Combine and was selected with the 88th overall pick in the third round of the 2010 NFL draft.
