Dexter McCluster

We already missed on Desean Jackson so heres our next chance! I've been telling my friends about him for a while.

DeSean was a pure receiver and a sensational kick returner. He's 5-10 175.

McCluster is a RB/WR Hybrid who is much smaller at 5-7 168 who has never been a full-time kick returner in his career. McCluster will not be drafted by the 49ers because he doesn't fit what we're looking for or need.

Scot is all about measurables, as he has demonstrated time after time. Dexter is fast and shifty, but I don't feel he would be anything more than a utility player. We do not have the talent currently on our roster to allow for the use of a 2nd or 3rd rounder on a luxury pick.

If we want a player that better fits our system, we should target Shipley, Ford, or Marcus Easley. Fast, quick, versatile guys who can block too.

Scot did reach for Brandon Williams, who was also undersized. I wouldn't assume Scot favor a specific type of player; although, he has shown that he likes drafting guys that can play multiple positions.

Yes, and I'm speaking generally of course, in that McCloughlan seems to have a thing for freakish athletes with good size-speed combos.

McCluster is a guy who would probably fit in well with a team like Philly, New England, Miami or Indianapolis.
Mccluster is a poor mans Harvin but faster IMO. He'll be a mid-late 2nd rounder.

I don't think McCluster is anything like Harvin, and may not even be faster. Quicker, maybe. He can't break tackles as well, he doesn't have the height, the strength, or the size (5-7 168 compared to 5-11 195) either.

McCluster is more like Garrett Wolfe, a RB/WR guy drafted out of Northern Illinois in the 3rd round by Chicago. McCluster will likely be that kind of third down, change of pace back like Wolfe is.
B/c of his size, I think Dexter can be had in the 4th or 5th rd this year. He isn't even the size of Sproles. I could see us taking a return specialist and utility player like him in the middle rounds. Unless he can put on about 20 pounds of muscle (while still losing no speed/quickness), there is no way he goes in rds 1-3. Even if he does gain that kind of weight, I don't think he'll go in rds 1-3.

Great, let's get him round 3 then
yea i saw the old miss lsu game today and he was pretty impressive, but yea if he is round 4 or later than we should get him, but everything really depends on free agency
Watching McCluster vs Tennessee gave me flashbacks of Chris Johnson vs the 49ers.

Like many know, unless McCluster is clocking in the 4.2's, he's not going to be able to run around people in the NFL like in college. It's just not the same. The NFL is not just faster, it's far more physically demanding, and that's a heck of a step up for someone with an incredibly small frame like McCluster's.

He's a guy just one decent hit away from a big injury in the NFL.

McCluster is not an everydown back, but he is an every down offensive player. He can also help on punt and kick off returns! If you guys think he is dropping to the 3rd or 4th rd you are out of your mind. Late 2nd is worse case scenario.

He's a 1st rounder that why we are not going to get him!

speed kills! He'll be a first rounder!

I would like the pick with a 2nd rounder but I bet you're right. If we could trade our pick 16 for a later 1st round and a later pick, then take him in the late 1st... Pipe dream.

I think he is going in the first now. Unless he has a disappointing 40 time.
