05:37 PM ET 02.20 | Players have begun to arrive in Indianapolis for the 2013 NFL Scouting Combine, with workouts scheduled to begin this weekend. Unfortunately for fans that will be watching and NFL personnel members that are looking to evaluate the top talent in the upcoming draft class, one of the top wide receivers, Cal's Keenan Allen, will not be participating in workouts. Allen is still recovering from a torn posterior crucial ligament (PCL) and will not be able to show his skills at the combine. The Golden Bears wide receiver's agent, J.T. Johnson, said that Allen is still only 70 percent healthy, so the best decision will be to wait until April to run his 40-yard dash. Allen aggravated his knee injury during workouts leading up to the combine and that is the reason for his decision to sit out the combine. He will, however, run routes at Cal's Pro Day on March 14.

Thousands and thousands of players won't be working out at the combine. This is another in our series of threads about each and every one of them.

Anything they want to know about Allen can be gleaned without the help of the Combine.

BFD. Film don't lie and that's all the scouts need.
The combine is a show for media types.

Then why do the teams still show up? If you're right, in the long run, the combine should become no more.

And just how do they come up with 70% healthy? Is it possible for anyone to judge their percentage of health?

If that's the case I'd say I'm about 57% right now. I'll be over 60% after this second cup of coffee.

No reason for a top flight candidate to go to the combine. Films and media coverage will speak for them. They have more to lose than to gain. However, if you are middle of the pack player, or kicker, this is your opportunity to get noticed and either move up in the draft, or to get signed as undrafted after the draft.
