McCluster had 342 yards against Eric Berry this past season, for what it's worth.

He's one of the better football players I have seen come through the SEC in the sense he can do it all in the ball skill positions (sans QB). I found myself holding my breath every time he touched the ball when we played him last year. He completely burned our defense 4 different times for 30-80 yard TD's, and it would have been the same result if they were playing two-hand touch.

go to vimeo.com and type in Dexter McCluster. The only vid that comes up is the vid of his runs against Tennessee. I'm new here so I can't embed things yet.

Someone should embed that video in this thread.

They can also say he's switched to a pure slot WR but I think that'd be a huge mistake.

Put him and Charles in a 2RB 3WR set and who the fuck do you cover?

Who'd run the ball?

What do you protect against?...

KCJohnny

Wow. McCluster makes the other athletes on the field look like they are in slow motion. This guy has Barry Sanders-like moves and natural open field ability. Not sure he's a second rounder, but I'd like to see him in preseason. He might be one of those RBs who gets his own yards whether on a good running team or not. It would be a shame to convert him to a WR only.

Some of those runs he won't be able to get away in the NFL. He'll be going against guys just as fast and as quick in the NFL and twice as big. Cutting back l across the field like that, won't work in the NFL at his speed/size/strength ratio.

No, maybe not, but he'd have a better chance of succeeding doing that than Lance Long or Bobby Wade, for whatever it's worth.

No, but check the cut at 6:02... I don't care who you are, there's only about 3 or 4 guys in the league who could counter that move, and one of them's Patrick Willis.

Another thing that makes him impressive, imo, is that Ole Miss was a one dimensional offense... and he was the one dimension. Snead completely sucks. When Arkansas played them, it was no secret that the ball was going to McCluster. All we needed to do was shut him down to win, but we absolutely could not do it (once again, our defense was suspect... but he torched good defenses as well).

I'm not convinced that his skills (and size) will translate to the NFL, but I know I was screaming "FUCK YOU MCCLUSTER, TACKLE THAT LITTLE MIDGET BASTARD" at the TV set pretty frequently one Saturday in the Fall of 2009.

Think Percy Harvin (although smaller). This kid is fast and quick. I expect he will actually end up taking a small number of very effective runs and short passes throughout the year. When I flipped to Mississippi games last year, I would watch because of him. When they lost, it was often because they went away from him. But i do remember a couple games that he just put the team on his back and carried them. Where the winning drive would be ALL McCluster.

Same thing we heard about Sproles and Dante Hall.

I found this post from a Tennessee fan kind of interesting-

"Being an SEC fan I got to see plenty of these picks..Nothing's a sure thing((except Berry)) but all 3 were in more highlight reels than I can count.. I watched Dexter have two 250+ yard games and always thought the defense would kill him out of frustration when they got their hands on him; Trouble is they rarely got their hands on him; There's not really a back to compare him too because his moves and unreal speed are strictly a "Dexter Thing"..Javier is guy thats always around the ball making a play..Any smart SEC team made sure not to punt directly to him unless they had spent much extra special teams preparing."

Look, I know he's fast and came hit the "home run" - at least he could in college.

He's also small, and light and not someone you spend a second round pick on.

Harvin is 5'10 and just under 200lbs.

Dexter from the lollipop guild is 3 inches shorter and 30 lbs lighter.

I watched him play a lot last year and regardless of size this dude is one hell of a football player. I hope he puts on a little more weight and I wish he was a little bigger but make no mistake about it, if he stays healthy we'll all end up loving him.

The one stat that sticks out from his college career is that he had 0 zero fumbles.

I hope you're right....I really do..

But I feel like I've seen this song and dance before with Dante Hall, and I've seen enough dump passes to a midget that go for 2 yards to last a lifetime.

No doubt. We were the Ole Miss McClusters last year. If Snead was just one half better than he actually was, I think Ole Miss would have been a BCS team.

People always think lighter guys will get killed. It just isn't so. Some guys have a knack for never taking the big hit. Marvin Harrison was never more than 168-175 pounds and until his knee gave way was super reliable. Same for Isaac Bruce. Then on the other hand, some big guys are injured a LOT because they don't know how to avoid contact. It's not about weight as much as it is about taking all those big shots. Some guys just never take em. We all remember Ed McCaffery. He took a big shot on every play for some reason. He just never knew how to avoid those shots. Dexter appears to know how to avoid them as well. At least at the college level.

I can see it now, play action fake to Charles and bootleg pass to McCluster. If he's really as quick as he looked we're going to flat wear the other team out just having them try to cover him. Those two could be a fun combo to watch this year.

This was pretty much my first thought. He wasn't a guy I had thought of as a Chief (mainly because he didn't fit a need), but I'm a huge fan already. I certainly wouldn't want to be responsible for designing an offense to stop Charles & McCluster (and maybe Bowe?).

I might be wrong, but I think Bowe's major contribution to this season will be making blocks downfield for Charles and McCluster. I'm willing to bet that both of them have better hands than Bowe.

I won't be a believer until I see him take a few crushing hits and stay in the game. If he's really going to be a slot receiver he's gonna take a beating out there. I hope he's sturdy enough for that. I do agree with the "wow" part though. Not being one who watches a lot of college football I didn't know much about him until now and his highlight video is fun to watch.

You may be right, but I hope they give Bowe a chance to be a weapon in this offense. The guy's got talent, but needs to put it all together this year. It's a big year for Bowe and I hope he knows it and I hope the coaches can get the most out of him.

Better hope you're wrong. Bowe may not be a Pro-Bowler, but he can be a 1000 yard/8 TD type of guy. If he's not being used as a down-field threat then, Charles and McCluster are going to be the dink-and-dunk guys, and people will just sit on that.

Doesn't the SEC have hordes of NFL players every year? They have lots of big and fast guys that I'm sure have given Dexter a shot. It's not like he dominated at Pitt St. He was dominating in the best conference in the country, playing against NFL caliber defensive players. He's proven he can carry a load, take a shot and come back for more.

Berry had the most trouble against McCluster. Watch Berry play Alabama and you will see him being a playmaker. But his game his Junior year was not the same as his Sophomore year. He was allowed to make more plays his Sophomore year.

True, and I'm sure he's used to it. I just imagine it's a little different when every hit is from an NFL-caliber player. I'm excited that we have two guys with lots of speed on the team now. It'll be a bit of insurance if Charles get injured.

Only player in SEC history with 1,000+ yds Rushing and 500+ yds Receiving in a single year.

Also, one of only two players (Florida's Percy Harvin) to rank top 10 in the SEC in rushing yards, receiving yards, receptions and all-purpose yards

I think part of Bowe's problem last year was the fact that he got a lot more attention than he did when TG was on the team. He's a good receiver, but he can't do it by himself. He'll benefit a lot from having other playmakers on the field. I do hope I'm wrong, cause I always like Bowe. I'd hate to see him give up and do nothing all year.

I'm telling ya, Dexter might want to return kicks, but he doesn't need to. He's much more valuable elsewhere. Just use the guy who is the best in the country at it.

I'll say this...if McCluster starts to produce, I'd sure hate to be the DC that has to gameplan against him and Charles.

I've warmed up to this pick considerably.

McCluster, is "the brown Trans Am." Did I hear that correctly?

Yup. Philly was set to take him. He will definitely be a play maker for this offense. If we could have gotten a nose I honestly think this draft would have been a fantastic one. However it's such a glaring need and we made two really stupid picks (Arenas and the tight end) that's just a D or C-.

McCluster's so small and feeble. Watch (http://www.kcchiefs.com/media-center/videos/Mike-Mayock-Breaks-Down-McClusters-Game/aa01f6fb-850b-4518-b977-f4354f859a09) him block a LB no problem. Good footage and breakdown by Mayock. He is REALLY excited about this guy.

Sorry had forgotten to link video. Enjoy.

I actually like Moeaki... he's a very good all around tight end... so I would move it up to a B.... and the Arenas pick really tells me that they don't like any of our corners outside of Flowers and maybe Carr.... and they are probably right I mean we got torched in the air last year... I still have images of Steve Smith killing us, an don't forget about Gaffney having his career game against us week 17 that was fucking embarassing

Just for the shit of it. Watch Berry Vs McCluster.

I think its safe to say that Eric Berry is why we drafted McCluster.

I imagine when they watched tape of Berry, they saw that game and said "uh yeah, if this kid is the best safety to come out of college for the last 10 years then we'd better get that running back that made him look like a fool."

Seriously though, I was pissed that we took him but it wasn't because I didn't or don't think the kid is incredibly talented.

In short I think he'll be a good weapon and he's our wildcat.

McCluster the Wildcat. Sounds like a cartoon.

For as high as we picked him, they better have him either returning kicks or punts as well as working out of the slot.

Take from an SEC fan: " I watched Dexter have two 250+ yard games and always thought the defense would kill him out of frustration when they got their hands on him; Trouble is they rarely got their hands on him; There's not really a back to compare him too because his moves and unreal speed are strictly a "Dexter Thing"

I would agree that our secondary probably needed upgrades. But, that being said, it is a bit premature IMHO to upgrade the secondary when teams are so sucessful running against us that there's really no need to even test that secondary much. I was really hoping our run defense/pass rush would get more focus in the draft. I hope Crennel has a plan to address this because our run defense/pass rush last year sucked.

I DO like the McCluster pick though. Looks like the kid will be a stud.

Pioli and Haley seem to see McCluster as a WR and a WR only. They may have some gadget plays for him as a RB, but they are going to do their best to develop him as a slot WR.

When DMC was drafted, I was like WTF, why another damn RB. I forgot that he started his college career as a WR, and definitely caught the ball a lot in college.

Here's to hoping he embraces being a full time slot WR, and he transitions well.

I liked McCluster as our Kick returner, but with Arenas, IDK. Arenas might be better than Dexter as a returner. Atleast special teams is far from our problem now.

No doubt about it. I think the return game will be solidified.

A lot of the expects had Arenas listed as the top returner in the Nation. In fact, his return skills alone are so good, and was/is the reason for him being drafted this high.

The good news about Arenas is, he has been a good returner throughout his whole ENTIRE career. He was effective returning kicks throughout his high school career, and carried over those skills/assets in college. I just think he is naturally gifted in that area.

His quickness and elusiveness have won me over. We have been a slow team. Now, we have 2 quick players and an OC that will know how to use them. I like the pick.

The more I look over this draft, the better I LOVE IT! We really struck gold with our top five picks imho. Each player fills a dire need for us. Sure we could've used a NT and more LB help, but the players we did get also fitted needs. This team has a lot of holes to fix. I think Lewis is meant for special teams and Sheffield could possibly work out as 3-4 OLB can generally be had in later rounds in the first place.

We definitely upgraded our play making ability on both offense and defense. McCluster/Moeaki are likely to be big weapons for us. Asamoah (sp?) is the interior OL we all dreamed of drafting. Remember this was a weak draft for interior OL and we were lucky to grab one of the very few elite guys at that position. He can fill either G or C for us.

Defensively Arenas gives us a big play nickel CB. He is the top return man in the draft and gives us a CB that is excellent at sacking the QB and playing physical all-around. I doubt highly Arenas lets Miles Austin get away like Leggett did!!! Arenas is a pretty damn good tackler that is built like a safety strength wise. On top of that we have the icing on the cake with the likely best overall player in the draft in Eric Berry. A jack of all trades type of safety. Great in coverage, but also great in the box player.

Watching that Berry vs. McCluster vids told me two things. One Run DMC is dynamite with the ball in his hands. It also showed me that Berry is all over the field and seems to be always in on the play. He reminds me not only of Ed Reed, but Troy P!
