Scouting Report on Keenan Allen

How we scouted: Film footage, In-person visits, Camp settingby Barry Every - 08/17/2009

  • StrengthDivision I Player
  • AgilityBlue Chip
  • AthleticismBlue Chip
On the Hoof: Allen is a tall, rangy athlete with long arms and a frame that can easily hold another 20 pounds. Has the appearance of a hybrid safety/outside linebacker and may remind some people of a young Deon Grant.
Needs Improvement: Could use some added muscle mass, which will help him become a more physical deterrent in the secondary. Could also improve on speed just a bit.
Most Impressive: Covers a ton of acreage in the secondary like a smooth jungle cat, and he has the hands to change the game in an instant. Allen is also a very versatile athlete and could play on either side of the ball.
Conclusion: It would be shocking if he didn't play meaningful time as a true freshman. He doesn’t lack confidence and is very coachable.

Barry Every is a Football Recruiting Analyst for Rivals.com. He has worked in the recruiting offices for Mark Richt at the University of Georgia, Bobby Bowden at Florida State University and Mack Brown at the University of North Carolina
