Why Dexter McCluster Will Be The Kansas City Chiefs MVP in 2010

When the Kansas City Chiefs were getting ready for this past April's NFL Draft, everyone in Kansas City was debating who the team would take in the first round. While the team had apparent needs at safety and linebacker, and many thought the team would almost certainly address the offensive tackle position.

So when the Chiefs selected Tennessee safety Eric Berry with their first round selection, the fans and experts remained convinced the team would address their tackle needs in the second round.

They were all wrong.

You see, head coach Todd Haley and new offensive coordinator Charlie Weis knew the team's offensive line was good enough to get this team into the playoffs in 2010.

What this team was short on was playmakers.

Listed as a running back in most draft guides. Most fans were baffled why the team would draft a running back since the Chiefs had already signed free agent Thomas Jones to pair with Charles.

That perception about McCluster quickly changed as soon as Chiefs fans started spotting highlight reels of the Rebels do-it-all star.

Read on to see the five reasons why McCluster's star will not only shine in Kansas City this fall, but he will become this team's most valuable player.
