One of the most talked about sleepers in the draft almost snuck into the first round.
The Kansas City Chiefs passed on two big name Notre Dame products — Golden Tate and Jimmy Clausen — so that offensive coordinator Charlie Weis could work with Ole Miss running back Dexter McCluster.
McCluster joins a talented backfield with Jamaal Charles and Thomas Jones. (That scream you heard was from Charles’ fantasy owners.)
The Chiefs figure to use McCluster on third downs like Weis used to with Kevin Faulk. It wouldn’t be surprising to see McCluster line up as a slot receiver often.
Either way, the Chiefs are starting to get an offensive identity. Their three-headed running back monster is going to dominate the football.
