I thought Allen was more the Anquan Boldin type? I didn't think he was supposed to be a speed guy, even before the injury.
I'm all for adding quality players this draft. The only position we may need a starter is FS imo. Everywhere else we're looking at backups, so getting a guy like Allen to learn from Boldin isn't the worst idea in the world.
I can't really evaluate him right now...because he can't run. Understand when healthy, he's been compared to Anquan Boldin (definitely a good thing). But, I did see Da'Rick Rogers on NFL-N's "Game Changers" and he looked like the kind of big, determined receiver we could really use. I think either guy would be a huge asset to Kap in the passing game.
You answered the question. If he's the real deal, YOU TAKE HIM regardless of position. Teams SHOULDN'T draft based on needs. (unless there's a franchise QB on the board and he's worthy of that pick)
"General manager Trent Baalke insisted Wednesday the 49ers are "not a need-based drafting team." That should hold true next week: the reigning NFC champs don't have many needs to address with their 13 picks."
