Bio

Dexter McCluster is a wide receiver for the Tennessee Titans. He played college football at the University of Mississippi and was drafted in the second round of the 2010 NFL Draft.

EARLY YEARS

McCluster was born on August 25, 1988 in Largo, Florida. As a senior at Largo High School, McCluster rushed for 2,490 yards and 39 TDs as a running back. He was named First-Team All-State 5A and the All-Suncoast Player of the Year.

UNIVERSITY OF MISSISSIPPI

Despite playing in 14 games his first two years on campus, McCluster suffered from several injuries, forcing him to miss the second half of his freshman year and the first four games of his sophomore year.

As a junior, he was named second team All-SEC after he finished the season with 655 rushing yards and 625 receiving yards. He had seven total TDs that season.

He finished his college career rushing for 1,169 yards and eight TD. He caught 44 passes for 520 yards as well, making him the only player in SEC history to rush for over 1,000 yards and catch passes for more than 500 yards in the same season.

KANSAS CITY CHIEFS

McCluster was drafted in the second round (36th-overall) by the Chiefs in the 2010 NFL Draft.

As a rookie, he was used primarily as a kick and punt returner, but did grab 21 passes for 209 yards and a TD on offense.

His breakout season came in 2013. He had career-highs in receptions (53), receiving yards (511) and receiving TDs (2). He also led the league with 686 punt return yards and two TDs. He was named to his first Pro Bowl and was second-team All-Pro.
