NFL Draft Prospect: DSU’s RB Brycen Alleyne

Delaware State University running back Brycen Alleyne sped past his opposing competition for four years at Delaware State University and now he is looking to bring his talent to the NFL level.

Alleyne played at the Division I FCS program Delaware State University for four seasons, where he rushed for 1,719 yards, 11 touchdowns, 491 receiving yards, and two receiving touchdowns.

The 5-foot-6 inch, 156-pound running back was also a major factor in DSU’s return game as he had 54 punt return yards, 1836 kick return yards, and two kick return touchdowns.

In his four seasons at DSU, Alleyne was honored with numerous accolades including All-MEAC Conference Third Team (2018), MEAC Football All-Academic (2018), Preseason All-MEAC Second Team (RB) (2018), Phil Steele Preseason All-MEAC Third Team (KR) (2018) and Phil Steele All-MEAC Third Team kick-off returner (2017).

At Delaware’s Pro Day, Alleyne showed his skills to NFL scouts in attendance as the Delaware State product used this time to show off his speed. Alleyne’s 4.41 time for the 40 yard dash would have put him second among the running backs who ran at the NFL Combine.


Alleyne’s Pro Day Numbers

Alleyne may be from a small school from a small state but the media is starting to catch on to the DSU running back talents.

As Fansided’s The Jetpress( New York Jets) site named him #10 in their top 20 list of Top 20 small-school prospects Jets could target.


Here is what The Jetpress Steven Blush said about Alleyne:

“This Tarik Cohen-ish 5’6″ All-MEAC RB/KR grades highly for his leadership, coachability, consistency, and work ethic.  Could be what Jets thought they’d found in Trenton Cannon.”

We think Alleyne could be a kick return specialist for an NFL team which later could lead to an opportunity to join the offense for some touches.
