Another young wr we passed on that had a big night. He's shown flashes of being really good. For a team that paid so much attention to a guy you have to wonder what made us pass on him.
For comparison:
15 220 3-Lafell
23 332 2-Allen

Lafell seems to be stepping up this year but Allen appears to be better at this point in his career than Lafell was his rookie year.

Keenan Allen was drafted in the 3rd round while the panthers packed it up and returned to the hotel room set on drafting Edmund Kugbila.

Every single "look who we passed on in the draft" thread is hindsight and pointless. Every team in the league passed on him at some point, no?

We didn't even have that pick.  That pick ended up being Terrence Williams going to the Cowboys.  Not having that 3rd, we missed out on T-Will, Allen, Goodwin, and Wheaton at WR.  Thank Hurney but I wouldn't get upset.

Why did we pass on that Victor Cruz kid?  Our front office is so stupid.

Right because your picks are set in stone

Every team in the league doesn't have the WR corps we have. Steve Smith will be 35 and the only one under contract next year no?

Of course they aren't but we all knew DG wasn't going to trade up in his first draft, and we're talking a 3rd round pick.  The only WR we were in good position to take with our 3rd (4th rd) pick was Quinton Patton but that's about it.  

 

Allen looks to be solid but we really weren't in position to take him.

He was passed up by a lot of teams because I think he ran the slowest 40 time out of all WRs, had terrible workouts, was never known as a speed guy and couldn't seem to recover easily from a PCL injury. It's understandable why teams chose to look the other way. He did look really good the last couple weeks though. Seems like a tough kid with very good hands.

How much time did our coaches spend with Victor Cruz? Because our WR coach damn near spent the whole summer with Keenan Allen, hosted his pro day, and Rivera was one of the only head coaches in attendance. Not the same thing as Victor Cruz. Nice try tho
