San Diego Chargers Rookie WR Keenan Allen got a lot of love last night in front of the national audience. He really stepped his game up last night for the team. Everyone knew where Philip Rivers was going to throw the ball, but the completions still kept coming. The Chargers kept moving the football and kept getting first downs with their rookie wide receiver.
Allen will get plenty of opportunities the rest of the season to show off his skills and show the rest of the league that they made a mistake for not taking him. Allen was passed up by the whole league because of a poor 40 time and because of a prior injury. Before the combine and news of the injury, he was projected to be one of the top receivers in the draft. I am happy that those things did not scare Tom Telesco from picking him up.
Allen is going to be good for a long time for us. Keep feeding him that rock!
