Scouting Report on Allen Baileyby Mike Farrell - 06/19/2006
Bailey is a man amongst boys in high school, playing against average competition and dominating it. Heâ€™s very quick and strong but his physical nature is what separates him. He doesnâ€™t want to just make tackles, he wants to make them with authority. Athletic enough to play running back in high school at 252 pounds, Baileyâ€™s defensive potential is limitless. He wants to be a linebacker in college but his potential is even higher as a pass rusher. His powerful legs and strong base give him excellent leverage against blockers and his long arms allow him to make plays others canâ€™t. Bailey is better straight forward than side to side but heâ€™s still raw and has a very high ceiling.
