Hopkins and Allen are my preference at WR. I thought for sure Allen was going to run a faster 40 than Hopkins but he's not even close.... Here is hoping for Hopkins @ 1.17 instead of Allen. Here's some info on Hopkins 40 for comparison's sake:

Hopkins improved his 4.57 time from the combine during his pro day. Here is a snippet from DraftInsider.com:


DeAndre Hopkins/WR: Was timed as fast as the low 4.4’s on a number of watches but was later given an “official” time of 4.52. Except for two drops late in the session his pass catching workout was described as “dazzling”.

The time is reflective of his injury. Hopefully he falls to us in the 2nd.

Reports are that he is only around 85% coming off the knee injury.

reminds me of how Heath Miller fell to us, I would LOVE Keenan Allen in Round 2.

Here we go again. Rate players high who's on-field performance is average to below average because they work out well, and rate players low because their work outs aren't great yet on-field performance was above average.

Nice.

Now THAT would be AWESOME...like getting TWO first-round picks!;)

Eh the last time that happened we ended up with Rashard Mendenhall and Limas Sweed...
don't count me as one that is overly excited about the prospect.

Oops...guess that was more like getting one second-rounder....

Actually that happened last year with D'Castro and Adams.. Adams only dropped because of his personal issues. Many had him projected as a mid first round talent. The jury is still out on both pics (to be honest).

Keenan Allen sounds like a bunch of big, productive former Pac-10 stars (Keyshawn, Sean Dawkins, Reggie Williams from UW...)

i.e. Not first-round worthy, but could be good role player.

LOL at cancelling a guy based on 40 times...

me too, especially since his slow 40 time was because his knee still isn't 100% yet. when fully healthy, Keenan Allen is a stud WR and would be a steal in the 2nd round just like Limas Sweed was.

oh wait...:D

Sounds like Sweed

Sweed's problems were mental, he had all the tools physically. IMO, Allen is tough mentally and has the tools.

Mayock said it best, he is a 4.5 guy on tape and will likely go somewhere late in round 1 or early in round 2. If he fell to us he would be a steal.

To me he looks like a slightly taller and slightly leaner Hines Ward. That should make him about a 3rd round prospect. Maybe he goes a little higher because you can't touch a WR and with his decent size, he should be a good redzone target.

Might be a good round 2 target.

His game was never his speed. He is pretty polished and will win most one on ones. The only concern I have with him is he reminds me alot of Michael Clayton from LSU coming out. Enough speed for the college level but excels because of his size and other skills. That doesn't mean he won't be productive in the NFL like Clayton. He may be a 600 start to 1,100 peak before he declines. Just may not be an elite #1. May be disappointed if you take him in the 1st but a solid pick if you take him in the 2nd.

IMO, Allen would compliment Ben's style perfectly. He has spent his college career getting open as plays break down, and he goes after the ball aggressively.

You never really know until they actually play in the NFL, but I have a feeling he would flourish with an accurate QB like Ben.
