@James_Dator: It seems scouts confer that one of the 40s was way slower than what I had: 4.67. He got a terrible start on both

@James_Dator: My count could be off, but I see two scouts, one coach and Rivera here from the #Panthers. They're the most rep'd team now

@James_Dator: Scouts are dispersed over the field, Rivera has been locked onto Allen the whole time. Also locked onto: his bagel

@James_Dator: Dr. Andrews says Allen's knee is at 100% his surrounding muscles are at 75%... Per trainers

@James_Dator: 9 7/8 hands for Allen. 32 3/8 arms

@James_Dator: Ron Rivera just asked for a private meeting with Allen. Also looked like Rams were asking about his schedule

@James_Dator: Bengals scout: "He did an awesome job"

@James_Dator: 18 yard dig: Catches perfectly in stride

@James_Dator: It seems scouts confer that one of the 40s was way slower than what I had: 4.67. He got a terrible start on both

@James_Dator: Overheard a scout (not sure which team) compare Allen to Cris Carter.... So there's that

@James_Dator: Runs a double move, Texans scout calls it 'perfect'

@James_Dator: The route running is impressive.

@James_Dator: Rivera talking to Allen one on one. #Panthers

This is a big one for us. Big enough that I indeed felt compelled enough to start another thread.

The many connections between the Panthers and Allen are there.

In addition to the fact that Allen is having his Pro Day at Proehlific Park, there's a plethora of other things that tie us to him.

-Rivera is a Cal guy

-Reliable Rickly has posted numerous things to his twitter in recent months that tie him to us, such as pictures of the two together, praises for him, etc.

-He fits into what we need, and into Gettleman's stated methodology

-He plays as a position we've spent a ton of time looking at

-Hes a local kid

-He's a soft spoken, intelligent, talented player-all things Richardson has shown an affinity for.

I could go on if I really tried but I think that suitable to demonstrate that we're certainly going to have a special interest over the other 31 teams come tommorow.

I've adopted him as "my guy" and am real curious to see how this pans out tommorow. Frankly, I he dominates, he could rocket out of our range altogether. As he is still recovering from his injury, I don't know that that happens though. Hope it doesn't. Of course if he lays a duck, it really throws a wrench into the works if we indeed as tied to him as the evidence suggests.

Being that he is my guy, I'm getting irritated of seeing other playoff teams act as if he is going to be there when they pick, while they continue to mock a player weve shown zero interest in to us. So frankly, I'm hoping he does just well enough to solidify himself as a number 14 overall pick kind of guy, but that's off topic.

Anyways. This is seemingly the most significant pro day for this team this offseason, so I thought it worth opening up some discussion about.

Mike Mayock will be there and be talking about his pro day specifically tommorow night on the NFLN for those who have it.

Beyond Star & Lane Johnson, who many think and are probably right about being gone, there's a few that are really intruiging:

I agree that if we take a WR in the first, it will be Allen. Nuke is in second, but I think Allen is our frontrunner WR.

Cyprien is where I'm leaning at the moment at SS but it's overall very close in my mind. There is a good chance we could go Allen which I'd have no problem with.

If he runs in the 4.5 range he will be the first wide receiver off the board.

I like him fine, but it seems like his value is down the board a bit. Maybe trade down and see if he's still there?

This can't be definitively said. The top 3 WR prospects are close enough that it will come down to the preference of whoever is calling the shots of each team that will be choosing between them on draft day.

Been looking forward to it. Cant wait to hear how he does tomorrow, i think if he puts on a good show he will jump all the way up to a top 15 pick. I think his value has just taking a hit simply because of his injury. He was rated a top 15 pick before the season ended.

Fair enough. But he will at least have the best combination of height, weight, speed and ability.

This is my guy as well. I want him to do well, but I'm terrified that if he dominates, that'll take him right out of our range. We'll see how it goes tomorrow.

I just saw a combine interview with Keenan Allen where he said he thinks his 40 will be in the 4.4 range... Wow.... I can't imagine how much his stock would skyrocket if that is true.

Here's a little Bio I found

"Keenan Allen is a coach’s dream.

Humble, hard-working, competitive, driven and a natural leader, he has the intangibles in addition to natural skills to be a productive wide receiver in the NFL. Many have compared him to the Green Bay Packers’ Jordy Nelson, which would make him a big-time asset in any offenses’ passing game."

I like this guy a lot. I don't care about his 40 time. The guy makes plays. He is big and quick. I've heard another person compare him to VJax.

Maybe Ricky should tell him to tank his workout so we can get him at 14.

Pretty much what Jason Heyward did to become a Brave.
