The Indianapolis Colts selected Clemson tight end Dwayne Allen with the 64th pick in the 2012 NFL Draft.
Fantasy analysis: This pick is somewhat curious after selecting Coby Fleener earlier, but the Colts will have a pair of athletic tight end. Offensive coordinator Bruce Arians generally likes one blocking tight end and one of the receiver mold.
Allen is athletic and can do damage down the field, so he could see significant action in 2012. That doesn't mean he will have much fantasy value, though, as he won't be a focal point of the passing game. Leave him to the waiver wire in all formats.
