For my first ever FanPost, I'd like to hear your thoughts on Dexter McCluster.
For the unititiated, he is the hybred RB/WR (as well as the heart,soul, and driving force on the offense) of Ole Miss. He's small (5'8, 165), has a checkered injury past, and played second fiddle to Jevan Snead, but had an absolutely *electrifying* year this year.
I had the good fortune of being able to watch 2 Ole Miss games (which is odd, seeing as how I'm Canadian) and my eyes were glued to this guy whenevr he was on the field. I believe comparisons to Percy Harvin and Reggie Bush are not to be snuffed at, as he is the definition of playmaker. His open field vision and cutting ability had him dancing through defenses and oppposing special teams.
I think McCluster could find a spot on the Titans roster, as a KR/PR, as well as a some kind of hybrid RB/WR. Have him run a drag or quick slant, get him the ball behind the LBs, and let him do what he does. Give him the odd pitch or let him run a wild cat series or two. I think giving him 4-7 touches a game could have big gains, as well as giving CJ a much needed rest.
I'll close with a few stats, as well as open the thread to comments. This is my first real post on here, and look forward to getting to know you guys. Constructive criticism is more than welcome!
"Dexter McCluster's senior season was full of highlights as he set two school records against Tennessee for rushing yards in a game with 282 and all purpose yards in a game with 324. He rushed for 1,169 yards on 181 attempts, a 6.4 yards per carry, and made 44 receptions for 520 yards with 11 total touchdowns that made him the only player in SEC history to rush for over 1,000 yards and receive for 500 yards in a single season.
