    Have you seen Allen play? He's a 6'2 4.5 speed guy. More of a Jordy Nelson, Roddy White, Miles Austin type of guy. Doesn't have the elite straight line speed, but he's got a good build with a great first step. He's very quick and agile and doesn't shy away from contact. Good shielder to get the better positioning vs. DBs, blocks downfield, great route runner. Perhaps alot like a taller Reggie Wayne. Obviously, not as great as the 4 guys I mentioned, but the potential is there. Here's a highlight video:

    Better question is did you see him play?

    Kendal Wright is a 4.5 guy too, whats your point?

    and you just described Wright perfectly, theyre similar, IDC if he's taller

    I wouldn't mind Darick Rogers in the 3rd. Anquan Boldin type receiver, just the big frame receiver we need once KB leaves next yr

    He's Kendall Wright plus 4" & a more polished route runner.

    If we're going to take a WR, it needs to be Da'Rick Rogers with one of our 3rd round picks.

    I know someone else just said this, but this is the route I've been wanting us to take. WR isn't an immediate need and we don't need to be using another 1st round pick on a WR this year. There's no reason not to draft DL or OL in the first round.

    Also, if Justin Hunter is available when we pick in the 2nd, I'd consider him. But he's likely to go to the Texans or one of those later teams like the Ravens.

    The Texans are truly retarded for not drafting a 1st round WR since Andre Johnson. Their WRs suck.

    I have wanted Rogers in the third for some time, but for some reason people didn't think he would make it that far. If he is there we have to grab him up.

    It cracks me up how pretty much everyone gets so pissed when a player gets in trouble, then around draft time, they want to take every single thug with potential out there.
