I'm thinking BPA is gonna narrow it down to Shariff Floyd or Jarvis Jones.

I know I know , Jarvis Jones has a spine problem but I think he would benefit us the most as we need a LB

maybe reid doesnt want rookies to have to start right away, maybe he wants to sit and develop. I really can see us going after Jarvis Jones or Dion Jordan who can take over after Tamba gone, also you can never have enough pass rushers.

I guess that means they're not going to draft Robbie Rouse (5-6 190) as a McCluster replacement.

Yeah at this point it looks like he'll never (or have a hard time) living up to that pick for a situational guy.

But I don't know why we hate on him so much. I thought he adjusted nicely to the slot last year given we didn't have a QB.

I think Dex could be a good slot WR on a good team. Not just the Chiefs.

Reid seems to have made it clear he has no allegiance to players from the previous regime. It's not like somebody is putting a gun to his head to say this. For him to say this, it means he obviously has an intention of using him, which is more than can be said for Winston or Boss or Cassel.

Nobody is forcing Reid to say it for sure. But the fact that McCluster requires a special plan in order to get production just illustrates that he's not a great overall athlete and nowhere near being worth a top of the 2nd round draft pick.

I don't think the fact that a specially talented player requires a special plan to maximize production necessarily says that (e.g. Colin Kaepernick). In McCluster's case, since we already have several years of data, you may be right about his worth though.

Yeah, I really love that spin move he does right in front of defensive lineman - right before the lineman lifts him off the ground, crumples him into a tiny lump of fail and tosses him at the referee's feet.

The difference is that SanFran has a special plan for Kaepernick because he can do things that other QBs cannot. The Chiefs need a special plan for McCluster because he's incapable of doing things most RB/WR can do(running between the tackles, breaking arm tackles, outrunning coverage, out jumping defenders, beating one-on-one coverage, etc.).

That's not saying he's worthless. But as a gadget guy, his versatility isn't worth a high 2nd round pick...

Dante Hall didn't get nailed as often as McCluster does, and he was the primary kickoff and punt returner PLUS a huge contributor on offense.

Half of that's on Cassel, but the other half of that's on McCluster being a dud.

I almost get the general sense from your last few posts on the matter that you actually believe that.

I've sincerely tried to like him, figure out whats good about him, what his strengths are as a player and its pretty hard to come up with much... he's such a niche player.

Good - his initial five step quickness is better than average, he does get to his top speed in short order, he doesnt try to dance much, usually gets it upfield as quickly as possible and takes whats there. His hands are good enough for the short, close to the LOS pass game. He can get it outside on a well executed run play.

Bad - while his quickness is good, it easy to want more of it from a guy his size, its nothing all that special imo, you'd also expect a bit more top end speed from that size, dude has no second gear. Gets arm tackled constantly, doesnt have enough wiggle for a diminutive back and hasnt shown enough power to help make up for that lack, constantly gets muscled out of catches, forget about consistently effective blocking with that size, chronic fumbler.

He's a flyweight, one cut and go runner with limited top end speed and very little power behind that, who thus far hasnt shown he can be an effective, down the field route runner and receiver.

Not trying to single you out for a bloviating lecture LMAO, its just that the more i see, the less i like this guy as a player, its like you gotta use him just so, gotta have a special plan for him, if he had one real brilliant attribute it'd be different for me, but he sure doesnt seem to and hasnt shown it yet... i'd rather keep Draughn than this guy for sure.

Having said that, if anyone is going to solve his riddle, its Andy Reid, he's always had a fetish for wiry little scatbacks... i hope it works, hope i'm wrong, if i am i'll dutifully eat my helping of crow.

Dex was clearly overdrafted, but I think he'd make an excellent 4th receiver.

In a pinch, he could start a few games a year in the slot.

I mean he's better than having some Bobby Engram brokedick out there for sure.
