Grayson Allen's four-year tenure at Duke was marred by his reputation as a dirty player. However, at the NBA combine on Thursday, he showed he can bring more than just a jump shot.

Despite his shortcomings and inconsistencies in college, Allen should become a solid 3-point threat with excellent vision from the off-guard position. His athleticism has always been considered above average, but the 22-year-old's combine measurements were undeniably elite.

Drill Measurement Rank
Lane agility (seconds) 10.31 1st
Shuttle run (seconds) 3.40 2nd
Three quarter sprint (seconds) 3.15 9th
Standing vertical (inches) 32.5 5th
Max vertical (inches) 40.5 4th

There are still several prospects who have yet to compete in the strength and agility portion of the combine, but that shouldn't diminish how spectacular Allen performed. He outperformed expected first-rounders Jalen Brunson, Khyri Thomas, and Bruce Brown in every listed category, likely securing a spot in the top 30.
