After setting two franchise rookie records by recording 1,046 yards and 71 catches in 2013, Chargers WR Keenan Allen is looking to take his game to the next level. A third-round draft pick last season, Allen made a name for himself as the Bolts’ primary receiver after the injury to Malcom Floyd. He finished his rookie season targeted 104 times for eight touchdowns.
With week four of training camp underway, Allen says his focus right now is not only on trying to improve individually, but also as a team.
“I’m just trying to keep building everyday and keep the chemistry strong,” Allen said. “Keep it going with the guys and just try to get better.”
Building chemistry is key to progress and avoid the dreaded sophomore slump; however, Allen is trying to improve his game physically as well. Averaging 6.2 yards after catch last season, the former Cal receiver said improving his speed is a main goal this camp. Allen also said he wants to be more of a leader. Ranked 11th on our WR list, we project him as a low-end WR1 and he's getting targeted in the early fourth round.
