^^ In all fairness, the best special teamer in the NFL right now (Josh Cribbs) didn't return kicks or punts in his college career, but anyone who saw him run could tell that he was dangerous with the ball in his hands.
McCluster hasn't done much returning of kicks or punts at Ole' Miss, but I'd bet good money that whoever drafts him will immediately give him one or both jobs.
I agree with this. Guy runs with good vision and is obviously quick with the ball in his hands. They probably didn't have him on special teams because they needed him to run the ball.
With Frank Gore at running back, I'd feel pretty good letting McCluster returning for us.
But what if he cant do it? Why take a chance is my stance! There are much better return men to be drafted.
Drafting isn't an exact science. Just because a guy has been returning in college doesn't mean he'll be a great return guy.
I don't care who we take but we badly need a return guy. McCluster also offers a guy who can be a threat in the running game or the passing game. So if you're going to take a return man you may as well get a guy who can help your offense or defense. McCluster can help the offense(same reason people are blowing their wad over Spiller)
I also don't want him in the 2nd round I think that's way too early.
And drafting a guy who doesnt return kicks in cillege almost certainly means he wont be a great return guy.
I assumed I didn't need to state the obvious...
I guess in your case I'll need to make the exception next time
And to your luxury crap...get out of here with that. You want luxury picks? Check the CJ Spiller thread. Drafting Spiller in the first round there's a friggin luxury for you.
While you're in that thread you'll also see me saying we should grab McCluster in the 3rd way before the game today.
