Keenan Allen was too elusive for this article.

I'm curious about Matt's take on this in terms of which player's yards after catch skill set best translates to the NFL?

Will Austin's speed elusiveness still be effective in the NFL, or will it no longer be with faster NFL defenders?

Will Patterson's wider array of moves, and better power, still translate with better and stronger NFL defenders?
