Alabama redshirt senior Chris Allen has signed with Priority Sports Agency and will take his talents to the NFL. Allen missed most of the 2021 season with a foot injury he endured in the season opening game against Miami. Allen also missed the 2018 season with a knee injury but was granted a medical redshirt.

Allen opted to return for his senior season in 2021 but unfortunately suffered a foot injury after a strip-sack in the Miami game. His injury left a hole that the Tide worked all season to fill, using Drew Sanders, Chris Braswell and Dallas Turner in his place.

Despite the injury, Allen is expected to be a Day 2 NFL Draft pick in the spring. Day 2 consists of Round 2 and Round 3 of the NFL Draft.

Allen concludes his Alabama career with 61 tackles, 19.5 tackles for a loss, 7.5 sacks, 4 forced fumbles and one fumble recovery.

He led the SEC in tackles for a loss as a junior in 2020 and for his efforts he was awarded second-team All-SEC.

Allen leaves the Capstone as a multiple national championship and SEC championship winner as well as with a degree.
