Allen seems to be the classic case of a guy that pretty much universally impressed everybody on the field, yet a sub-par 40 yard dash dropped him to the mid-rounds.
I'm both a Cal fan and a Charger fan, and I was very surprised and pleased that he fell to the Chargers.
At Cal, throws were forced to him often, and he succeeded with poor throws to him while defenses knew where the ball was going. Often, other receivers were wide open but Maynard (the QB, Allen's half-brother) was locked into Allen from the snap.
Admittedly, I was not sure how he compared to others in his draft class because the offense he was in was so distorted.
The Vikings need offensive line help, while the Bears, Lions, and Packers have significant defensive concerns.
