    Dexter McCluster in round 4

    I agree the Pats should build up their D line and pass rush first but...I can't help but watch all the cool fast cars! Dexter McCluster is a poor man's C.J. Spiller. He has a "gone" gear, great balance and good hands. Maybe a day three pick up. Am I missing something because it seem like a lot of people are sleeping on Toby Gerhart? I didn't like him at first but having just looked again, he doesn't look to bad. Carries tacklers and has a decent burst. I think Matthews is the best overall back.

    I like McCluster a lot. He can play slot along with returner and RB. Versatile player who plays a lot bigger than the 5'8+" he is. Speedy and quick. The Patriots had a look at him a few weeks ago. Still, I'd love to see the Patriots get a big bruiser back. Anthony Dixon would be nice. In fact, Dixon and McCluster would be nicer!

    I totally dig DM and agree he'll be gone by the fourth but I have my fingers crossed that we pick up Mathews in the first and follow up with a second round of DE/OLBs and a receiver.

    Mathews (if available) is too good to pass up.  Odrick would be a waste of a pick...  High character, low production, low disruption.

    Read yesterday the pats met with him, had him draw up and explain routes. THe kid sayed they are considering him as a slot reciever. Bet the pats just loved this kid telling this to the media!

    I dont see us picking him as a RB, his blocking in passing situations is wayyyy too poor.  BB requires that one can block so that TB doesnt get killed when opposing D's blitz in a spread formation. 
    As a slot guy, he maybe good, but do we need 3 slot guys?  I know WW is out for a little bit, but we have a young, good slot guy in JE.

    Kansas and ccusson are right on!  If we do not select Dexter "Do It All" McCluster with #47 pick in second round he will be gone!  He has great versatility and can help Pats as receiver, RB, punt returns and next year can replace Kevin Faulk full-time.  I also like Ole Miss Greg Hardy at DE in the fourth round.  Let's get some combination of Brandon Greham, Witherspoon, Kindle, Hughes with first round and first second round pick, then Dexter, then with third second round pick get best available TE.

    I'd take him in the 2nd round over Tebow. He could defeinitely be a productive slash player / 3rd down back.

    He's another version of Sproles or Washington who could also be a posession wideout.

    Deji Karim is my bet for Faulk's replacement. He's about the same size, but with a stockier build and way more speed. Good hands, good effort blocking, excellent production. Can run between the tackles or bounce it outside. Averaged well over 30 yards per return as a KR man this year. Could be had in the 5th - 7th as opposed to the 2nd - 3rd that we'd need to spend on McCluster or Best (who are two of my favorite players in this draft).

    I checked out youtube they had his pro day. Built like a tank. Made some good catches using his hands only, from out of a backfield set.

    McCluster is not Faulk's replacement. Big difference between the 2 in terms of style of play and size. McCluster will never be the blocker Faulk is and has been. That said, McCluster can be a weapon and is versatile, just don't expect him to sit back there and block for TB because he will get crushed.

      DEXTER IS A TRUE HOME RUN(MAKE THAT TD THREAT,ONE OF THE BEST IN THE DRAFT PLAUS HE FILLS A MULTITUDE OF NEEDS.AS SLOT RECIVER,AS A MOTION MAN OUT OF THE BACKFIELD, ON END AROUND PLAYS,ON SCREENS,A A RUNNING BACK IN CERTAIN SITUATIONS AND AS A KICK RETURNER.THAT'S A LOT OF FIREPOWER FROM ONE LITTLE GUY WHO HAS PROVEN HIMSELF TO BE A LOT TOUGHER THAN MANY FANS BELEIEVE HE IS.I THINK IT'S A SMART MOVE TO GRAB HIM IN THE SECOND
