Keenan Allen Drafted By the San Diego Chargers in the 3rd Round (76th Overall)

Harry How

After a long, long wait Keenan Allen has finally been drafted. As the 76th overall pick, Allen goes to the San Diego Chargers.

Remember when Bryan Anger was a higher overall pick than Keenan Allen? Good times, good times.

Now that a long, long, long, 24-hour period is over for Allen, he has found a new home in San Diego.

Wide receiver wasn't a posititon the Chargers were dying to fill, but they found Allen to be too enticiing of a prospect to pass up in the third round.

Allen has what nobody else on the Chargers' roster has: The physical gifts to replace Vincent Jackson as a true threat in the passing game. However, he probably won't be ready to take on that role in his rookie season.

This is good value for a 3rd rounder, but the fans are still wondering how Tom Telesco intends on addressing the Left Tackle, Nose Tackle and Strong Safety positions.

Head over to Bolts From the Blue to tell our SBN brethren in San Diego how they got the best value in the draft.
