Allen is gonna be really good imo. He had a sh*tty QB last season but he's a really good route runner with really good hands. His speed isn't gamebreaking but he can create separation.

Patterson has that Julio Jones explosiveness though.
Yeah, I think Allen would be better suited for a team with an established O-line and Qb right now

yeah but if he's healthy he could wind up being the best WR from this class his first yr

he won't be at the combine tho

For the third time in the last week, it's been revealed that a potential first-round prospect will not work out at the scouting combine this week because of an injury. First, USC quarterback Matt Barkley said that he will wait until his pro day to throw as he recovers from a shoulder injury. Then, Alabama running back Eddie Lacy injured his hamstring while working out. Now, there's a third.

Cal receiver Keenan Allen, projected by many to be the best at his position in this draft class, will skip the drills at the combine in Indianapolis this week because of swelling in his left knee. Allen suffered a grade 2 PCL sprain in that knee in late November when Cal was playing Utah, and it ended his season.

According to CBS Sports' Bruce Feldman, who spoke with Allen's agent, Allen experienced swelling while training for the combine, got an MRI, and went to see noted surgeon Dr. James Andrews. Dr. Andrews diagnosed the Grade 2 sprain, and told Allen that surgery would not be needed. However, the kibosh has been put on Allen's ability to do his thing in Lucas Oil Stadium. Instead, Allen will work out for teams at two pro days -- Cal's standard pro day on March 14, where he's only expected to run routes, and a separate workout in April, where he'll run the 40 and do other speed and agility drills.

That will be an important day for Allen, and few players would have benefitted more from a great speed showing at the combine. Allen, who caught 205 passes for 2,570 yards and 17 touchdowns in three collegiate seasons despite the highly questionable nature of his school's passing game, is a deceptively fast player who's on-field speed will generally exceed his blast on a track. Fortunately, he does have a high-quality body of work to offset any concerns.

"I think with Keenan Allen, it's one word: speed," Mike Mayock of the NFL Network said in a recent media conference call when asked what Allen needed to prove at the combine. "That is the only question scouts have on him. It's hard to view him on tape with the way they throw the football. So what is it? If he's a 4.4 guy, bang the table, he's a top 25 pick. If he runs 4.55, 4.58, there are going to be a lot of questions about him.

"And off tape, if you like him, he's an Anquan Boldin‑type guy. If you don't like him, you're going to say he's speed deficient. So if he runs fast at the Combine, that is one of those positions where speed at the Combine means something, and he can really ‑‑ if he runs in that 4.4 to 4.5 range, 4.48 even, I think he's definitely a first‑round pick."

With all due respect to Mr. Mayock, who's one of the best draft analysts in the business, I think Allen is sneakier-fast than people give him credit for. But we'll have to wait a while to confirm that.

This news will likely increase interest in two other receivers -- Tennessee's Cordarrelle Patterson, and West Vurginia's Tavon Austin, both of whom could see their names called in the first round.

Tavon Austin believes he is the best player in the draft:

For many prospects at the Scouting Combine, the primary goal when standing up at the podium in front of the a.ssembled media is not to say anything controversial. But West Virginia wide receiver Tavon Austin is different.

Austin brashly proclaimed himself the best player in the draft when it was his turn to meet the media in Indianapolis. Asked if he views himself as the top player available at any position, Austin answered, “I think so.”

“I think I am the all around best player in the draft,” Austin continued.

Austin is certainly a playmaker: In his senior season at West Virginia he caught 114 passes for 1,289 yards and 12 touchdowns, ran the ball 72 times for 643 yards and three touchdowns, returned 15 punts for 165 yards and one touchdown, and returned 33 kickoffs for 813 yards and one touchdown. In the NFL, he said, he’ll be a combination of Percy Harvin and Wes Welker.

Tavon Austin is not lacking for confidence.

Matt Barkley disagrees with criticism of arm strength

Southern Cal quarterback Matt Barkley won’t throw this weekend at the NFL Scouting Combine, but he said that the shoulder issue that’s keeping him from it wouldn’t be an issue for long.

Barkley told reporters he’d be more than ready to throw by his March 27 Pro Day, and he’s already explained to teams his decision to wait until then because of a separated shoulder suffered last season.

Of course, there were questions about Barkley’s arm strength before his decision to skip Combine workouts.

Asked about the suggestion he doesn’t have an NFL arm, Barkley said “I would disagree,” and insisted he was not only going to be healthy enough to make all the throws, but prepared to do more than that.

“I plan to start right away,” he replied, when asked about the possibility of beginning his career as a backup. “My goal is to be playing in September.”

Now all he has to do is perform well enough at his Pro Day to finish convincing someone to give him that opportunity.

If Tavon Austin isn't in the top 20 he will be a steal for who ever drafts him.
