04/29/13 - General manager Tom Telesco was ecstatic that wide receiver Keenan Allen was on the board for the team's third-round pick. Allen caught Telesco's eyes years ago when he was scouting a Cal game and the impression stuck. "I don't know if it's luck or what, but we were really excited to get a playmaker like him at that spot," Telesco said. - The Sports Xchange
04/25/13 - DANE BRUGLER'S FINAL 2013 DRAFT BOARD: 26. WR Keenan Allen, California (6-2, 206, 3JR)...A talented all-around pass catcher, Allen has the size, speed and strong hands to be a productive target at the next level. His knee needs to check out medically. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
04/25/13 - ROB RANG'S FINAL 2013 NFL DRAFT BIG BOARD: 23. *Keenan Allen, WR, California: Recruited by Nick Saban to play safety at Alabama, scouts knew Allen (6-2, 206) had the physicality to warrant comparisons to Anquan Boldin. Unfortunately, he also demonstrated the same lack of ideal speed as the former Florida State standout during a personal Pro Day for scouts April 9. By clocking in at 4.70-4.76 seconds and raising further questions with a flagged drug test from the combine, Allen could easily slip into the second round. I'm higher on him than most. Criticize that fact now. Remember it later. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
04/17/13 - California wide receiver Keenan Allen's drug test at the NFL Scouting Combine was red-flagged, according to an ESPN report. The report said Allen's test showed suspicious levels of water -- a sign that someone could be attempting to flush their system -- and was ordered to take another drug test. Results of that test are not known, and Allen's agent, J.T. Johnson, said his client did not fail a drug test.
Once considered a potential mid-first round pick, Allen's stock has been freefalling since he suffered a PCL injury to his left knee in October. That ended his junior season with the Bears and kept him from working out at the combine. However, he did go through team interviews, a thorough medical check and the drug testing.
He finally returned to the field to work out for NFL teams in Greensboro, N.C., on April 9, but turned in disappointing 40-yard dash times in the 4.70-4.76 range. Allen is still building up the muscles around his knee and he did look good in positional drills last week, but the reports of a flagged drug test will only continue to weigh down his stock nine days before the NFL Draft.
Allen is currently the No. 35-rated prospect overall and No. 4 receiver by NFLDraftScout.com. He might be the best all-around wide receiver prospect in this class, but the combination of a knee injury, a general lack of explosiveness and now potential off-field concerns will likely land him in the second round.
Allen, 6-feet-2 and 206 pounds, left as Cal's career receptions leader despite playing fewer than three full seasons. He is expected to run faster once the muscles around the knee are stronger. He has no other known previous off-field issues. - Derek Harper, The Sports Xchange
