I for one think he is the answer. More so than Spiller. He can add the same potential with 5ish carries. With McCluster IMO being the better of the 2 as a receiver.

The only thing Spiller has on McCluster is he can carry the load if something happened to Frank. But with Coffee, McC could still fill his same role if Frank isn't in the lineup.
Not so sure about that. With what he's doing at the senior bowl and after his combine performance (likely to only increase his already skyrocketing stock), I can see McCluster sneaking into the late 1st...very early 2nd at the latest.
2 Thoughts here:
1. Spiller is bigger, faster and scored more TD's on special teams and on offense this year so how is it that McCluster has everything on Spiller?
2. Don't believe everything you hear during Senior Bowl week. McCluster is not going in Round 1. Never going to happen. No one drafts a special teamer in RD 1. There are a couple of running backs that need to get taken before McCluster gets a sniff.
I have 2 thoughts:
1.) I'm a huge fan of Spiller, so I'm not sure why you're asking me "how is it that McCluster has everything on Spiller?" I don't believe that McCluster has anything on Spiller (and that's no knock on Dexter), with the possible exception of being able to play more slot WR (even that is somewhat debatable, but I'll give the edge to McC). IMO, Spiller is clearly the better overall prospect than McCluster so I'm not sure why you would ask me that question.
2.) Don't be so sure about McCluster...you might see him as a special teamer, but I can guarantee you that a lot of personnel people see him more as a Desean Jackson-type of playmaker, in the passing game mostly, but also in the run game on occasion, running the wildcat and also on special teams. He's a multi-dimensional offensive threat and much, much more than just a special teamer. Because of that, he could easily go in the late 1st/early 2nd.
