Keenan Allen is rated at the top of some teams draft boards at the wide receiver position, but he may be dropping down the boards after possibly being recently red flagged for failing a drug test during the scouting combine and was retested this month. His agent is denying the report and saying that he was red flagged for his knee and ankle injuries and was retested for that.
What to believe?
Allen failed to impress with his speed at the combine and at his Pro Day, but his work on tape cannot be denied. If you love the combine, then you wouldn’t even think about selecting Allen. I personally look at what someone does on the football field as my proof.
There is talk that Allen could be slipping to the 3d round because of this latest red flagged that was raised. That is 1st round talent slipping down that far. If the Chargers find a partner to trade down with and have a few extra picks in the middle rounds, it would be awesome if the take a flier on the kid. The tape doesn’t lie.
He is a quick kid that runs good routes and knows how to get open. He has the wiggle to shake defenders in the open field. He stands at 6-foot-2 and will win the jump ball.
