Keenan Allen has performed like a first-round talent in his rookie season, leading all rookie receivers in receptions (63), receiving yards (931) and receiving touchdowns (7). Along with those numbers, Allen has created explosive plays, leading all rookie receivers with 14 catches of more than 20 yards.
Evaluating his college tape from Cal, his biggest problem was that he did not display top-end speed, he showed that he had the ability to create separation and make plays on the ball on a consistent basis for the Bears. And he’s doing the same thing with the Chargers.
The only player on offense that has really showed they deserve the award is Eddie Lacy, but I think Allen has been more impressive.
