I like this description, specifically the areas I have highlighted which I think we need big time:
If he hadn't become a wide receiver, it's entirely possible that Allen could be a coveted safety in this draft. His experience on defense shows up on offense, where he has a great knack for finding space in coverage
, working back to the ball to help his quarterback
and using great hands as a dependable pass-catcher. He's dangerous with the ball in his hands
. Allen has dealt with nagging injuries during his time at Cal, but is the kind of wideout who can come in and make his mark early
, and Houston needs to find another weapon for Matt Schaub, with Andre Johnson on the backside of his career.
