Bears one of 6 teams present for late look at guard Roger Allen

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

The Bears were one of six teams represented today at Missouri Western in St. Joseph, Mo., to watch intriguing guard prospect Roger Allen at his pro day.

Allen was invited to the combine but a sports hernia prevented him from participating. He finally got down to business with Bears scout Ted Monago there, as well as representatives from Carolina, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Miami and Philadelphia. Allen has big-time strength as evidenced by his 38 reps on the bench press at 225 pounds at the Missouri pro day. The 6-3, 326-pounder is considered a mid-round prospect.

The scouts were also treated to some eye-opening numbers from a pair twins from Fairview, Ill. Vincent Anderson and Victor Anderson, both 6-2, 215-pound safeties, ran so well that the scouts made them each run a third 40-yard dash. Maybe they didn't believe what they saw on their stop watches. Victor was clocked as fast as 4.40 seconds and Vincent came in at 4.42. Victor put up 25 reps on the bench and Vincent had 23. Both had a 9-10 broad jump.

The issue with the Andersons is both have been off the radar at Southeast Missouri State as juco transfers from Mesa Community College. They attended Belleville East High. It's only a good sign that the scouts wanted to see more from them and asked them to run again. With their size and speed, they could warrant a look as free agents and have an opportunity on special teams.
