San Diego, CA- The Chargers have signed undrafted free agents wide receiver’s Brelan Chancellor and Torrence Allen.
Brelan Chancellor is a 5’9 receiver from North Texas. Chancellor was the 2013 USA Conference Special Teams Player of the Year as a return man and set a single season record for North Texas for the most all-purpose yards in a single season with 1,964 yards. Expect Brelan Chancellor to battle in training camp for a spot on the Chargers roster as a return man and slot receiver.
"Chancellor has big hands. Very good balance and body control. Runs strong with good body lean. Compact and controlled. Can contort his body in the air and make difficult catches. Has a 41-inch vertical jump. Outstanding agility, burst and short-area quickness. Slippery in the open field — has a knack for avoiding direct contact and spinning off tacklers. Knows how to set up blocks. Tough and highly competitive. Good vision, awareness and traffic burst in the return game. Very good overall production. A creative return man and crafty slot receiver with production that far exceeds his measurables, Chancellor has overcome the odds throughout his career and could carve a niche returning punts and beating zones from the slot. Has the makeup to earn a job and exceed expectations. A make-it player."
Torrence Allen is a 6’0 receiver from W. Texas A&M. Expect Torrence Allen to battle in training camp for a spot on the Chargers roster as a special teams player as he lacks the athleticism and size to beat out the other slot receiver candidates on the roster.
"Outstanding production in college as he racked up 3,098 yards and 24 TDs the last two years. Has a 40-inch vertical jump. Tough and will play through injuries (played through left foot injury most of junior season). Good work ethic and competitiveness. Football is important to him. A reliable possession receiver most ideally suited for the slot, Allen does not display the make-you-miss after the catch or route savvy desired for the pro level and will require time to learn how to read coverages and uncover. Limited special-teams value could restrict chances to earn a spot."
