Many NFL draft pundits questioned Allen’s 4.89 40 yard dash a couple of weeks ago. Today Allen didn’t run the 40 in order to improve his time. When asked about his decision not to run today, and the overall perception surrounding his .40 time Allen said, “I’m not a track guy, I’m a football player….if you watch me on film I play way faster, and that’s all that matters.”
Jets Head Coach, Rex Ryan, was a big name in attendance who took time to speak to Allen personally.
