05:21 PM ET 04.07 | The Kansas City Chiefs have big plans for Dexter McCluster. This isn't the first time they said that, but new coach Andy Reid is extremely high on the WR/RB. Reid stated that he wanted to draft McCluster back in 2010, but the Chiefs snagged him first early in the second round. He has since been considered a disappointment, never finding a natural position at the professional level, but Reid values his versatility and believes he can be a playmaker at any point of the field. "His value is that you can move him into different spots where you can utilize his talents the best. You saw what Charlie (Weis) did with him the one year when he kind of mixed him in the different positions offensively. He can handle it. He's a sharp kid. Obviously he's a talented kid."

McCluster could be a beast, in the right system.

It sure looks that way, bit then again every time we think we know something about the NFL, it proves us wrong.

I'm going out on a limb here and saying Denver has a much harder time winning the West than we think they will.

Andy Reid's system.

I remember that 2010 Draft. The Eagles wanted McCluster and everyone knew it. That's half the problem with Andy Reid on Draft Day... he's too obvious. It's too often that other teams trade up in front of him and snag the guy he wanted.

Andy Reid loves getting the runningback involved in the passing game. He's screen crazy, loves dump passes, and likes to line his line his runningbacks up like slot receivers. McCluster could put up some big numbers playing for Reid.

True... At Ole Miss in his senior season they had two plays.

McCluster right... And McCluster left. It worked too.
