Former Georgia Tech b-back Anthony Allen had expected to hear his name called sooner, but as the 225th player chosen in this year's NFL draft, Allen said it was a strong finish to a slow day. He became the third running back drafted from Georgia Tech since 2008, joining Tashard Choice (2008 by the Cowboys) and Jonathan Dwyer (2010 by Pittsburgh).
Since 2000, no NFL team has drafted more Georgia Tech players than Baltimore. In 2006, the Ravens drafted running back P.J. Daniels and safety Dawan Landry. The Ravens also drafted former Yellow Jackets linebacker Ron Rogers in 1998.
Overall, it was a quiet weekend for the Jackets, as Georgia Tech had its fewest number of players drafted since no Yellow Jackets were taken in 2005.
