Blue Collar:Andy Alleman Goes Pro Akron Beacon Article- Pro Day
04/04/07 - Athletic Andy Alleman, Stark County’s top NFL draft prospect, keeps earning “A’s” as the race for April gold hits the home stretch. The 6-foot-4, 306-pound guard has passed running and agility tests with flying colors. By Alleman’s calculations from cross-checking Combine and Pro Day numbers, he is the top-ranked guard in most measurable draft workout categories. One exception is strength reps, not that bench pressing 225 pounds 30 times makes him Barney Fife. The Browns, who are in the guard market, have as much inside information on Alleman as anyone. Much comes from Frank Verducci. Before Verducci was hired as a Browns assistant Feb. 8, he spent a week with Alleman getting him ready to impress NFL scouts. “We have the same agent, Joe Linta, and he got us together,” Alleman said. “It all happened pretty quick.” Verducci, who also has worked for the Bengals and Cowboys, gave Alleman a frank assessment of his University of Akron game films. “We weren’t sitting there patting each other on the back and smoking cigars,” Alleman said. “We went over positives and negatives.”

03/09/07 - After the combine and the workout Friday, Alleman is the No. 1 guard in the country in the bench press (30 repetitions of 225 pounds), broad jump (8-feet-10), pro agility short shuttle (4.38 seconds) and three-cone ``L drill (7.44 seconds), which also is the fastest time in the country for an offensive lineman. Scouts were impressed with Alleman's intensity in Indianapolis and again Friday. Alleman, who is expected to go between the second and fourth rounds of the April 28-29 NFL Draft, said he was doing only what he always has done: play hard every time he steps on the field. ``That's how I've always approached the game since I was little, Alleman said. ``It's a lot easier to attack something when you're well-prepared. It's a lot easier to let it rip, and I'm very, very happy with my overall performances. One of the scouts Alleman impressed was Steve Marshall, offensive line coach with the Cleveland Browns.

03/05/07 - With all that at stake, and his mother’s condition being in the back of his mind, Alleman still went out and made a claim as being one of the top three guards in the draft. He was the No. 1-rated guard in the broad jump (8 feet, 10 inches), the No. 3 guard in the vertical leap (30 inches) and the No. 3 guard in the 40-yard dash (5.07 seconds). For Alleman, it still wasn’t quite good enough. His goal is to be one of the top five overall linemen – not just guards. “(My mother’s stroke) affected me a little bit,” said Alleman, who starred as an outside linebacker in high school and didn’t begin playing on the offensive line until his junior year at Akron. “I’m going to re-do some things (at Akron’s Pro Day) because I wasn’t happy with a couple of things. I didn’t want to tell people (about the stroke) because I didn’t want to make excuses, but it sucks that it happened. It’s been a real stressful week with everything at the combine and everything else that’s happened.” A second chance Akron’s Pro Day on March 9 will give Alleman another shot at improving in the three areas he believed he didn’t perform to the best of his capabilities – the bench press, 3-cone drill and pro agility. Being back at home, and not having the stress that comes with the combine – where every little thing a player does is under a microscope – Alleman is confident he’ll ‘clean those areas up.’

02/27/07 - NFL COMBINE: Risers: Alleman ran well in the 40 then showed impressive footwork during pass protection drills. His overall athleticism surprised many and Alleman is now likely to be the third or fourth guard drafted.

02/20/07 - On the Rise: Some scouts were disappointed Alleman wasn't invited to the Senior Bowl, as he remains one of the fastest rising prospects in the nation. Alleman, considered a late-round pick entering the season, has positioned himself as potential first-day selection. A former starting defensive end at Pittsburgh, Alleman transferred to Akron because he felt he'd be better served playing guard -- and based on his 2006 performance, it is hard to find fault with his logic. Alleman has terrific strength and is a more fluid athlete than most guards. Having only played the position two years, Alleman is a bit raw in his technique, but the tools are there for him to be ultimately be considered one of the better guards from this draft.
11/09/06 - PLAYERS TO WATCH: OL Andy Alleman – The 6-4, 295-pounder came with Brookhart from Pittsburgh to Akron. Alleman sat out the 2004 season after transferring, but over the past two years has evolved into one of the MAC's most talented offensive linemen. He played his high school ball at fabled Massillon (Ohio) Washington.
09/22/06 - PLAYERS TO WATCH: OL Andy Alleman - The Pittsburgh transfer has become one of the anchors of the offensive line. The execution has been inconsistent, but this group has the potential to be dominant at the MAC level.
