Allen Bailey was once rated as a 1st rounder and I was always baffled by that projection. He is the definition of a project. He has all the physical tools you look for and is a true workout warrior. However, his technique is awful and he needs a lot of coaching up. He struggles to get off blocks and his great strength is negated because of his high pad level and his poor hand usage. If he can get coached up and get better at the fundamentals the sky’s the limit. He has a lot of work to do though and an immediate contribution shouldn’t be expected.
