A rookie who could be critical for the Chiefs

Posted on: June 25, 2010 4:01 pm

Josh Looney reviewed all of the Chiefs rookies for the team website recently. Safety Eric Berry has received the most attention, and rightfully so. Berry, a three-year captain at Tennessee, has been compared to the likes of Ed Reed and Brian Dawkins.

But another name Chief fans will come to know is Dexter McCluster. The second-round pick from Mississippi offers big-play prowess and versatility to Charlie Weiss’s offense. The Chiefs will likely use McCluster similar to how the Vikings use Percy Harvin. Here’s Looney’s analysis:

It doesn’t matter how many games McCluster starts in 2010. He could very well play in all 16 games without starting a single one of them. What we do know, is that the Chiefs will use him in a multitude of ways from week to week. He’s a player who can fit into multiple personnel groupings at multiple positions and we already caught a glimpse of that part of his game during OTA and mini-camp sessions. When the 2010 season is all said and done, McCluster will likely have lined up at wide out, slot, running back, wildcat and return man.
