Which would be why my first response to a 5'7 receiver without any kind of breakaway speed catching deep passes is a chuckle and doubt that I'll see that translated onto the field during the regular season.
But stranger things have happened.
McCluster is 300 yards from scrimmage away from passing Dante Hall CAREER yards from scrimmage. He's been better offensively than Hall.
