And his tape for the 2012 season was average. I didn't see anything special from Allen whatsoever. As far as I'm concerned, Keenan is on par with Bailey, Rogers and Hopkins. All four possess decent hands and above average route-running capabilities but they're not explosive and aren't overwhelming talents.
so what about the years before 2012? his entire body of work is decent, but he caught 98 balls as a sophomore in a pro style offense. he is a better run after catch guy then those guys you listed and had worst QB play. was not asked to run deep routes much but when he did, he got open.
