Jonathan Allen is ready to put the league on watch with one more accolade after an incredible sophomore year with the Redskins.
The 2017 first round pick out of Alabama was selected to the NFL Network's All Under-25 team as one of the four defensive linemen. Last season, Allen tallied 35 solo tackles, 11 tackles for loss (tied for first on the team), eight sacks (second most on the team) and 15 quarterback hits (third to Ryan Kerrigan and Preston Smith).
Despite a rookie campaign riddled with injuries, the defensive end came back in year two and proved exactly why so many teams were so high on him coming into the draft.
Each member of the list must be under the age of 25 by the start of the NFL's regular season kickoff on Sept. 5.
Allen (24 as of Sept. 5) joins Kenny Clark (DL, Green Bay Packers, 23 as of Sept. 5), Myles Garrett (EDGE, Cleveland Browns, 23 as of Sept. 5), and Joey Bosa (EDGE, Los Angeles Chargers, 24 as of Sept. 5) on the list.
Alongside Daron Payne, Montez Sweat, and Matthew Ioannidis, Allen will suit up in the front four for his third year in the burgundy and gold.
The full roster is as follows:
QB: Patrick Mahomes (Kansas City Chiefs, 23 as of Sept. 5)
