INDIANAPOLIS — Ole Miss’ Dexter McCluster has a bright smile, long dreadlocks and big personality. The do-everything prospect captivated the audience Saturday during his time at the podium — just like he does on the field.
“I definitely pride myself on being electrifying,” McCluster said.
McCluster measured 5-foot-8, 172 pounds, which is the only reason he might drop into the second round. He amassed 1,169 rushing yards and 520 receiving yards with 11 total touchdowns as a senior and has big-play ability.
Some teams like him better as a running back, some as a slot receiver. All would like him to return kicks. He said he’ll do running back and receiver drills this week, in addition to running the 40-yard dash, which he expects to take 4.3 seconds.
“It’s only 40 yards, should be able to get it over with pretty quick,” McCluster said.
