Anthony Allen, RB, Georgia Tech

For the fourth time in a row a Georgia Tech running back has been named to the All-ACC First-Team. Following Tashard Choice in 2007 and Jonathan Dwyer in 2008 and 2009, Anthony Allen took home the honors during his senior season. However, Allen started his collegiate career away from Georgia Tech…at Louisville. As a true freshman in 2006, Allen saw action in all 13 games and quickly turned into a prolific scorer. On 96 carries he rushed for 406 yards and 13 touchdowns and added another score on a reception. Allen saw his rushing total increase during his sophomore campaign and he ended up rushing for 696 yards and seven touchdowns and added 21 catches for 153 yards and two more trips to the end zone.

Allen then opted to transfer to Georgia Tech. After sitting out for a year, the 6-0, 229 pound back made an immediate impact for the Yellow Jackets as the third rushing option behind Dwyer and quarterback Joshua Nesbitt. Allen only carried the ball 64 times, but he made the most of his opportunities, averaging 9.2 yards per carry and scoring six touchdowns. With Dwyer out of the picture, Allen turned into the main rusher for Georgia Tech and carried the ball 217 times for 1,225 yards during his senior campaign.

Allen is a bruising back who can run through just about anybody. He does not have break away speed, but that is not the type of rusher he will be in the NFL. Allen is the type of player who can handle the load week in and week out and he is one of the better power backs in this class.
