Kareem Jackson, a Crimson Tide alum, is also with the Broncos.
Allen suffered from lower-body injuries in his collegiate career, but he did perform well in 2020. He collected 41 tackles, 13 tackles for loss (team-high), six sacks, five quarterback hurries, and two forced fumbles. Allen helped the Crimson Tide to an undefeated College Football Playoff National Championship season. He has two CFP National Championship rings (2017, 2020) and three Southeastern Conference title rings (2018, 2020, 2021). Allen will now work to become a star player for the Broncos.
