And rumor is he didnt fail a drug test. Theres not enough info out on tje drug test to waarant us not taking him. From how im hearing it(abd reading) it was a 2nd physical exam he took and someone jumped the gin and asumed he failed a test.

If they take him, fine. If they do not take him, fine.

This, of course.
Of course we should draft him, this guy is more of a deep threat just on his attacking the ball ability than most of the other guys posters are listing as deep threats. We need big physical guys for this offense, not tall lanky gazelles that will be pushed out of bounds by Dick Sherman in the first 5 yards.
If he is BPA, then yes, we should pick him. He is a very good player, so if he's there at 31 I think there is a very good chance we take him.

But I wouldn't pick him over someone like Tank Carradine or Datone Jones.
Never saw anything about him that impressed me of him being classified as first round talent. Sure he had a less than average QB throwing but most of the routes I saw him run are 5 -10 yard curl routes, 10 yard outs, and bubble screens. Never really saw any "deep scary burner" threat in him at all. Seems to me he is a good player but nothing really special about him that excites me. I think most of the fans of his are biased Cal or Pac 12 fans. Another thing to mention I am not a fan of WR's coming off of injury with leg and foot issues during college in to the NFL draft. It seems like to me it takes them longer to adjust to the speed of the game. Michael Crabtree was a prime example even though he held out. It took him awhile for him to break out. I would not be upset if we draft him but I would not be very thrilled either. I will support whatever player throws on a red and gold uniform though.

Biased or just better informed because we've watched whole games and not YouTube highlights?

I do not just go off of Youtube highlights cool breeze. Just was not that impressed by him. I did not watch or pay attention to him hardly in 2011 but I am going off last years performance from what I seen.
He can return punts, something that is NEEDED as Ginn is gone.

LMJ returns kicks

Allen returns punts.

I have Cal season tickets, he is better than deseaun Jackson. Allen never had a decent qb (even though it was his half brother).

Allen is building for NOW and the future as Boldin- One year, Manningham - injury, Crabtree (will want a fortune might not re up), Jenkins is a ???

Allen also is a stud down field blocker.
A very good pick at 34, and a steal in the mid 2nd.
slow, injured and a pot head. sounds like a winner



However, this franchise has not drafted a local kid (Stanford, Cal, SJSU) since 2003
