Default Keenan Allen-WR

This guy didn't work out at the Combine due to swelling in his knee. From what I read at the time it was caused by working out to hard, whatever that is. Now he's also missed Cal's Pro Day workout due to knee injury. Does anyone have better info. or know what knee injury this guy has really suffered? He has a private workout scheduled for April 9th. Am I the only one beginning to think his knee injury might be more than some minor swelling since it's taking months to heal?

He had planned to skip the Cal's Pro Day.
I wonder who will throw for him at the private work out.
Perhaps he wants somebody better than Maynard, LOL.

Depends on whose rankings you're looking at.

I think Mayock has him at #4 behind Deandre Hopkins. Walterfootball has him #3.

Gil Brandt.

"I'm not as enthusiastic about Cal wide receiver Keenan Allen as others are, which is why I don't have him going in the first round."

No Brainer huh!

PCL on his left knee. Allen is scheduled to visit the famous Dr. Andrews to check out the knee. Clearly, this is troubling to some teams. I think someone in the late 1st or early 2nd will get a steal, because Allen is the most polished, pro ready WR in this draft.

Allen is tops playing in/finding space, Hopkins I like better snatching it in coverage. Add them together and you get 85% AJ.

I'm very concerned about Allen's knee, though, and I'd like more info on what his ankle surgey was before the 2012 season too.

Feel like a broken record here, many people have their minds made up already who haven't actually even seen him play. You know that little hitch route that is so effective for Schaub to Johnson, where Andre creates yards after the catch? this is what Allen excells at as well. I've made pro comparisons but apparently people choose not to read or believe in what I'm trying to communicate. Failure on my part I guess, getting tired of this whole process, guess that's to be expected after going at it past 10 years, just usually more educated posters in draft forum. There should really be no confusion with this WR class

So it sounds like you are very big on Allen if you make any comparisons between him and AJ and would be delighted if the Texans got him ?
I don't follow college ball very much at all so I'm interested in what guys like you think about Draft prospects especially for the Texans since you know the players coming out. I've not seen any of these guys play, so I'm all ears when it comes to evaluations of the WRs this year since the Texans need help there so badly.

Yeh I guess Gill Brandt has never watched film on Allen. Guess he isn't educated enough. From now on we all should just take your word for it.
