27. Houston Texans WR Keenan Allen Cal Jr. 6-2 206
About 94 percent of mock-dom has the Texans taking a first-round receiver, so of course, it's probably wrong. But the need to add a threat opposite Andre Johnson is painfully obvious, and Allen is the highest-rated receiver left on the board. Sometimes you can't over-think these things.

You think he is better than Hopkins or even Woods? If so how much? If it fell this way I would rather go Short or Hankins. Its defiantly not a no brainer to go with Allen.

Allen is a #1 WR. Best in class ahead of Patterson. I would call that a no brainer.

I don't know about that to be honest. I also don't think Woods or Hopkins are good enough to be top tier WR1. I don't think any of those 3 has the upside necessary.

I'd like to wait until Allen works out on early April to see what extent his injury was, but I'm thinking he's the closest among the 3 with the potential to be a #1.

In my eyes, both Hopkins and Woods are more likely #2.

Agreed, I have felt this way for a long time. Patterson is an athletic freak and all but Keenan Allen has a higher floor, and his ceiling isn't really much lower. Best WR in the draft IMO and the best case scenario for us.

Patterson is a high risk/high reward player. Allen has a lower ceiling than Patterson but a much higher floor. Would be a much safer choice.

Bleecher newest mock post free agency has Cordarrelle Patterson going #8 to Bills & Keenan Allen #10 to Titans. Remember I said no receiver should be graded out a top 10 pick? Then they doll out Jarvis Jones to Texans - http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1...agency/page/28 whatcha think about those shocking numbers? usually closer we get to actual draft the better idea we have who will go where, not so much this year its absolutely a crazy

If Allen is 100% healthy it is a no brainer.

Meh. IMO y'all are over rating him and under rating others that could be available at that point.

that's a very vague statement. I mentioned to friends when I saw his injury that it would be blown out of proportion & people will think he could fall to the Texans, so here we are, draft hyperbole. Closest thing to total package in WR class, that's my opinion you obviously have yours. He is not a top 10 pick but at least top 20. Crabtree is looking strong now but took him four years & he was the 10th overall selection & he had a foot fracture I believe so he couldn't run either, similar styles think he ran a 4.55 so that is about what I expect from Allen if he chooses to run. Dez Bryant is another comparable, with exception of his off field antics dude can still ball & is a playmaker he dropped to #24 & ran his forty 4.52. All three receivers have excellent vision & can create yards after the catch. Really hard to rate those three players against each other for various positive & negative attributes but I would say Kennan is the cleanest & most willing to sacrifice whatever it takes for the team.

In regards to rest of group, I also love Austin speed & playmaking ability. Maybe more like a DeSean Jackson or smaller Percy Harvin but because of his less than ideal NFL size he will probably go after Allen. Other teams besides Texans are intrigued with size/speed/strength ratios. Hopkins is a baller, tough, reliable but not a game breaker. Have a hard time differentiating between Hunter & Da'Rick Rodgers must be a Tennessee thing? Rodgers is probably the closest thing to Allen if you can trust him off the field? Great movement skills & game breaking ability, better speed too, just those red flags are hard to ignore, might work out just fine in a place like Cincinnati. Hunter is a first round tweener who reminds me of Lestar Jean, just lacks core strength, beautiful acrobatic frame to make highlight reel catches but how will he hold up? Patterson lets just say is still a raw talent. He is worth selection for his return skills alone but depending on his work ethic & intelligence Teams may be willing to take their time developing that natural ability. I just don't see him as an impact WR anytime soon. Quinton Patton is a personal favorite, plays with passion for the game which can make up for a lot. I think he will develop into a killer #2 for some team & if Texans chose that route I would look forward to immediate results, just wish he had more speed to stretch the field.

Anyway that is pretty much my take on Keenan Allen comparable both in the league now & next to arrive. He is a top tier talent who fits the NFL prototype for position.
