Chargers.com: So first off, how does it feel to be a San Diego Charger?

Allen:  It feels great!  I’m definitely glad I’ll still be in California.  I love it out there. I’m glad to call San Diego my home.

Chargers.com: What was the moment like when you got the phone call?

Allen:  It was definitely special.  I was just waiting for a place to be, and San Diego made the call and I’m ready to go.

Chargers.com: Right now a lot of fans are excited about you coming here, but are wondering about the health of your knee.  How is it right now?

Allen:  I feel good.  I’d say Im 90%. I’m definitely active. 

Chargers.com: So do you expect to work out at the rookie camp in a couple weeks?

Allen:  I should be able to work out then.

Chargers.com: Many NFL Pundits are saying you are a first round talent but fell to the third.  Is there any reason why you think that happened?

Allen:  I really don’t have a reason.  I don’t know why.  But it is what it is.

Chargers.com: How much contact did you have with the Chargers during this draft process?

Allen:  We had a little bit of contact.  I saw them a few days before the draft so we were in contact.

Chargers.com: How about Philip Rivers? How excited are you to have him as your quarterback and catch passes from him?

Allen:  Oh that feels great.  He’s a great quarterback and a great leader.  He definitely takes control of an offense, the game and the team so I’m glad to have him.

Chargers.com: Is there any wide receiver out there that you would compare your game to?

Allen:  I would say Anquan Boldin and Calvin Johnson.

Chargers.com: What are the strengths to your game?

Allen:  My strength, quickness and knowledge of the game.

Chargers.com: Conversely, what do you need to improve?

Allen:  I want to improve my speed and be more consistent.

Chargers.com: Lastly, what do you want to tell all the Chargers fans out there?

Allen:  I want them to know I’m definitely ready to come out there and compete with you guys.  This is a great opportunity for me and I look forward to making the best of it.
