He's not faster or more elusive. His (Allen's) understanding of the route tree is higher, but they are not equal in straight line speed. Allen is the better WR today, injuries aside. Rogers, red flags aside, is the better WR prospect. Allen is ready to play today which is a huge selling point of him, but he's a #2 WR. Rogers isn't ready to be anything more than a fly-route guy right now, but he is head and shoulders above Allen on potential. The gamble with all three of the Tennessee-ish WR's is that their floor is lower as mentioned above. They are gambles. However, like I said, they are the only WR1 guys. Allen is a very good prospect, but he is not a WR1 down the road unless it is by default. I'd gamble on all three of Rogers, Hunter, and Patterson over Allen. You can be fairly certain what you're getting with Allen, Hopkins, Patton which is great, but you can also be fairly certain that is all you are going to get from them. The gamble is on upside. That's why you gamble on the superior talent, not the immediate production.
