NEW YORK — One of the most entertaining players to talk with throughout the pre-draft process of the past few months has been Dexter McCluster.
While the dynamic playmaker is a joy to watch on the field, he is just as pleasant to converse with off the field as Kansas City fans and reporters will find out.
Whether it was mentioning he wouldn’t mind following in the footsteps of former teammate Michael Oher and having a hit movie made about him at the Senior Bowl, or talking trash about former teammate Patrick Willis (P. Willy) at the NFL Scouting Combine, McCluster is one charismatic guy.
He can also play. He is similar in size and skill set to former Chiefs return star Dante Hall, and should fit well into Charlie Weis‘ offensive system as a versatile weapon out of the backfield and in the slot.
Who knows? Maybe one day he can duplicate David Patten‘s rare accomplishment under Weis with the Patriots in 2001, when he caught, threw and rushed for a touchdown.
