    Mccluster had a great performance in the senior bowl and many scouts are hypnotized by his ability to play 3 to 4 positions. Some regard him as the next Percy Harvin.

    No problem, thanks for posting the analysis, I can't figure out how to do directly quote it lol. BTW I know a lot of packer fans want mccluster on our team but I'm looking at Trindon Holliday. Packers scout dorsey was highly touting Holliday for the same abilities as Mccluster. I beleive if another team picks up Mccluster the packers are definitely getting Holliday.

    No thanks to Trindon Holliday. Would love to get McCluster in the second round. So much value in one pick. Has great soft hands, a very elusive runner, and an explosive returner. All add up to one great pick if he drops to us in the 2nd.

    2nd round?? He isn't really a position of need more like a luxury pick. Would like to take him in the 3rd or later once we plug some of the holes on our team like OL, Corner, or even Safety.

    I vehemently disagree.

    KR/PR is a MAIN position of need.

    A great field position and a chance to break a big one would go ways to improving our team.

    And the fact that he can play WR and be a change of pace RB... I would be doing jumping jacks if we took him.

    Of course he could have a bad combine and drop to the 3rd, but right now he'll be taken in the 2nd round after his good performance in the Senior Bowl. Totally agree with RS. We need a healthy returner, plus added into the fact of what I already said. Great hands and a nice speedy back at times. Just to add to his value, is the fact that he did well in the wildcat formation. Whether we'd do the wildcat is one thing, but it just adds more to his value and the likelihood of him going in the 2nd.

    McCluster would give us a spark on returns. We need that speed. I was reading somewhere that TT wants more speed on the team.

    I WANT!

    I would be more than content with burning a 2 on him if we have to.

    I just want to be safe. I know he'll be there with our 2, and if Ted really wants him I have faith that he'll reach if he has to in order to make sure he gets his man.

    I hope so too. Recently I've been watching more and more on Mcculster, he can definitely put more fire into this already burning offense.

    No way TT will reach. He's never done it before, and he won't do it now. Not for a position that's not our most pressing need, and not for that much.

    He might reach for a 25 if he's at 23, but that's it.

    And don't give me no CM3, CM3 was #15 on his board, if I'm not mistaken...

    According to every thing I read and every sports "expert" and every Mel Kiper wanna be.........he was a reach. Probably because his history of injuries during College.

    Every EXPERT had CM3 as an early 2nd round pick...

    TT had CM3 as #15...

    Mike Mayock has Earl Thomas ahead Eric Berry.

    Todd McShay (A.k.a. tanned man) doesn't have Clausen as a 1st rounder, because "he's not sure what's his upside". Are you kidding me? He's had monstruous sucess in a pro offense, in a bad team, and you don't rank him at the 1st round because you're "not sure about his upside"?

    And about Kiper, here's a little nugget:

    So you figure it out by yourself what this so called EXPERTS know about anything...

    40 time is almost irrelevant. The important is the shuttle and, most importantly, the cone drill.

    But 4.5 is a bit alarming...

    Looks like he may have hurt his draft stock but I still expect teams to pick in the second round. He did indicate that the packers have spoken to him about playing running back so I hope we get him.

    Yes! I'm glad he only ran a 4.53. Now we might have a chance for him in the 3rd round.

    I think he's really quick. Not blazing fast, but really really quick.

    Yeah I hope so too. NFL.com however still thinks that a team may ignore his 40 time based on what they see on film and snag him earlier. I hope that team will be green bay.

    McCluster hurt his stock running a 4.53 for sure. Whats up with that? I really don't think I'd take him in round 2 anyhow. Maybe if he falls to round 3 because of his slow run.....we could take him. Trindon Holliday ran a heck of alot faster and we could probably get him a bit later!
