Umm ok. He is exactly what Percy Harvin is. Last time I checked Harvin runs, catches and is thier KR/PR.
Harvin (5'11", 192) is actually much bigger than McCluster (5'9", 170) and is an every down player, unlike McCluster who projects to be more of a special-teamer/wildcat/slot WR type of player. Now, if he was a pure WR prospect like Desean Jackson was at Cal, he could definitely be an every-down WR...but I'm not sure McCluster has the receiving skills/abilities that Jackson had coming into the draft.
