San Diego Chargers WR Keenan Allen is getting a lot of recognition for his play this season. NFL.com made a list of top 15 rookies from this season and Allen was number 8 on the list.
Check out the summary on Allen for the season:
8. Keenan Allen, San Diego Chargers wide receiver: We’ve pointed out Allen’s emergence as Philip Rivers’ go-to receiver in back-to-back prime time games the past two weeks. A first-round talent who slid to the third, Allen is a complete receiver playing with a veteran’s savvy. – NFL.com
I expect Allen to rise higher and higher on this list as he gets more opportunity to play in the game. He is the highest listed Chargers rookie on the list. It is mainly because skill positions get all the love in the league. D.J. Fluker has been solid over at right tackle and was only listed as an honorable mention for top rookies in the league.
I can’t wait to see more out of Allen this season catching those passes from Philip Rivers. Rise to the top of this list and help bring the Chargers those wins.
