With the 117th pick in the 2015 NFL Draft the San Diego Chargers select Javorius Allen, RB, USC.
Allen will be the heir apparent to the oft injured FA Ryan Mathews.
Allen was the workhorse for USC in 2014 and put together an excellent season. The junior averaged 5.4 yards per carry for 1,489 yards with 11 touchdowns. As a receiver, he had 41 catches for 458 yards and a score.
Allen is a physical back who has a nice burst. Allen is a one-cut downhill runner who would fit well in a zone-blocking scheme. He has strength to him to pick up yards after contact. Allen declared for the 2015 NFL Draft.
Walk up to a wall of HDMI cables at your local electronics store or browse your online outlet of choice and you’ll see all manner of brands claiming their cables offer better picture and sound quality than the competition. Indeed, there is perhaps no consumer electronics segment more riddled with marketing voodoo and misinformation than the cable and wire industry.

“Whether you have a $100 cable or a $5 cable, if they meet the same specification requirements there should be no difference,” says Jeff, “From a technical point of view they are exactly the same.”
