Ole Miss' Evan Engram, Iowa's Jake Duzey, Arkansas' Hunter Henry and Stanford's Austin Hooper are among the top candidates for the 2015 Mackey Award, presented annually to the top tight end in college football.The Mackey Award watch list, released Wednesday, authentic nfl jerseys cheap includes 33 of the nation's best players at the position. Engram is the only player on the watch list who was a finalist for the honor last season. Engram authentic nfl jerseys cheap china free shipping caught 38 passes for 662 yards and two scores as a slot tight end for the Rebels last season. Henry, Duzey and Hooper have been identified as three top pro prospects at the position by NFL Media analyst Lance Zierlein. The biggest thing Allen could do would be to show everyone that nfl jerseys cheap infusion of speed we read about last offseason. But for a player who ran a 4.71 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine, it's hard to imagine that he's going to suddenly morph into Dri Archer. In the meantime, if he continues to run crisp routes and show reliable hands (he dropped just one pass last season), the opportunities will be there. FANTASY DRAFT KIT The hope is that the opportunities start to lead to extra yards and touchdowns. A lot of that will have to do with the routes that Allen is asked to run in offensive coordinator Frank Reich's system. However, it's cheap nfl jerseys fair to wonder whether Malcom Floyd's presence (and his 16.5 yards per reception average) will relegate Allen to the intermediate routes. It's also a void that could need filling with Antonio Gates facing a four-game suspension to begin the season. What we expect The talent is there for Allen, so for now I'm willing authentic nfl jerseys to chalk up 2014 to the vagaries of (fantasy) football. The Chargers offense isn't on par with the likes of Green Bay or Denver, but it's still a pretty productive outfit and Allen is a key cog in that machine. However, it's likely that Allen isn't cut out to be a team's No. 1 receiver and it might be time to authentic nfl jerseys free shipping revise our statistical expectations. Still it's not far-fetched to think that he'll have a resurgent year and make us believe that last year was just a bump in the road.
Verdict: Look for Allen's totals to more closely resemble what we saw from him in 2013 and a return to being a WR2 is a realistic possibility.
