At 6'3" and 325 lb, Allen may be physically the strongest man to have ever played in the NFL with a 900lb-plus squat and deadlift as well as a bench press of 700lbs-plus.[1] [2]. His strength combined with his noted on-field aggressiveness have made Allen one of the best offensive linemen in the league's history.


While his strength is phenomenal, Allen burst onto the scene with the Cowboys by using his speed in one notable instance. In late 1994, Allen made his first NFL start on Monday night against the New Orleans Saints. Early in the game, Saints cornerback Robert Massey picked off a Troy Aikman pass at the Saints 35-yard line and appeared on his way to an easy return touchdown. Allen, all 326 pounds of him, ran the 210-lb. Massey down from behind and prevented him from scoring.
