Ravens Final Draft Pick Wants To Make Opponents "Sick"

The Baltimore Ravens used their final pick in the 2011 NFL Draft to select Georgia Tech running back Anthony Allen. They took the 6'1", 230 pound Yellow Jacket because they knew that they stood a decent chance of losing either or both Willis McGahee and LeRon McClain for the 2011 season. Allen has the combination of great size and solid speed (4.56 40-yard dash) and would seem to be a great complement to starter Ray Rice.

As stated in a story at the National Football Post, Allen was the 25th running back selected in the draft and he has been quoted as saying:

"I want to make all the other teams that passed on me sick to their stomach," Allen told the Carroll County Times. "I’m going in with more than a chip on my shoulder because of all of the people who doubted me. I’m going to Baltimore with something to prove."


Allen was named to the first team All-ACC squad last year, even though he played in an offense not suited for the pro level, but did come out of a pro-style offense when he transferred to Georgia Tech from Louisville for his final two collegiate seasons. Let's hope Anthony gets his chance to make his opponents nauseous next season!
