SAN DIEGO-- The San Diego Chargers have taken Keenan Allen, California's all-time leading wide receiver, with the 76th pick overall in the NFL draft.
The pick was unexpected, but certainly upgrades the position. He had 61 catches for 737 yards and six touchdowns last year for the Golden Bears, when he missed the final three games with a knee injury.
He finished as Cal's all-time leading receiver with 205 catches in three seasons. His 2,570 career yards were third in school history.
