by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer (6/12/2013) The Union-Tribune San Diego reports that Chargers rookie receiver Keenan Allen ran faster and cut more sharply than he did a month ago at rookie minicamp. The report says Allen doesn't seem at all limited by the posterior ligament knee injury that sidelined him late last season and prevented him from performing at the NFL combine.

Allen falls to Chargers
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer (4/26/2013) The San Jose Mercury News reports that former Cal star Keenan Allen plummeted deep into the third round before being selected Friday by the San Diego Chargers. The 6-foot-2, 206-pound wide receiver was the 76th overall selection and just the eighth wideout taken in the draft. Allen sounded like a man with something to prove Thursday night when he tweeted, "Competitively disturbed!!! But it's all good somebody gonna hit the lotto! #headshigh #noworries" Cal's career receptions leader, Allen was projected as an early first-round pick last fall before spraining the posterior cruciate ligament of his left knee in the Bears' Oct. 27 game at Utah. Allen didn't require surgery but missed the Bears' final three games, then didn't work out for scouts at the NFL combine in February after aggravating the injury. Allen finally was on the field in front of scouts several weeks ago in North Carolina, but was timed at just 4.71 and 4.75 seconds in the 40-yard dash.
