Allen Bailey to Visit Chargers

Allen Bailey of the Miami Hurricanes has a scheduled visit with the San Diego Chargers. Bailey played defensive end and defensive tackle for Miami. Last season he recorded 7 sacks and 11 tackles for losses to earn second-team All-Atlantic Coast Conference.

Bailey stands at 6-foot-3 and 285 pounds and ran the 40-yard dash in 4.71 seconds at the NFL combine. He is projected to go in the second round and possibly could move up to the end of the first round.

If drafted by the Chargers, he would compete for the spot the Jacques Cesaire occupied last season. Cesaire is a free agent and the Charger feel that they can make an upgrade at the position. Bailey has the power and speed to play defensive end in our 3-4 defensive scheme.

Projected as a 2nd round pick, Bailey is viewed as a raw, extremely athletic power rusher who needs to improve on his edge rushing.  But his versatility and athletic ability would come with the expectations he could add a new element to the Chargers defensive line.
