Packers Attending Wide Receiver Keenan Allen's Pro Day

Bob Stanton-US PRESSWIRE

The potential first-round receiver prospect is holding a private workout today for NFL scouts, and the Packers are on site to observe.

Thanks to SBNation's crack reporting staff (specifically Cat Scratch Reader's James Dator), we have confirmation that the Green Bay Packers have sent representatives to a draft prospect's Pro Day which is taking place today. That prospect is... (drumroll please)...

Keenan Allen, Wide Receiver, California

James will be on-site for the entire pro day proceeding, and he'll be keeping us apprised of Allen's performance. This is a key step in Allen's draft process, as he was unable to do any physical drills or tests at the Scouting Combine in February due to a knee injury. Personally, I'm expecting Allen to run his 40-yard dash in the low 4.5 range - he's not a pure speed receiver, but he's plenty fast enough to be a productive NFL wideout. If his knee checks out he will look more appealing as a possible first-round draft prospect.

Obviously, the Packers' interest in Allen is unknown, but Green Bay could indeed be an ideal landing spot for Allen. Later today we'll have a little more on the possibility that Ted Thompson could draft a wide receiver in the first round.

Also, in case anyone is wondering why a Carolina Panthers blogger is at a University of California players' pro day, it is because the event is being held in Allen's hometown of Greensboro, North Carolina.

UPDATE: Allen apparently ran his 40-yard dashes in the mid 4.5 range according to James, though some scouts timed him in the 4.6's. However, James said that "Allen is faster in his routes than his 40 showed" and called his route-running "impressive".
