Moreover, Bucky Brooks of NFL.com wrote, "McCaffrey's flashy combination of speed, quickness and burst reminds some scouts of Reggie Bush, which is a testament to his dominance in the Pac-12."
McCaffrey has played as back role, slot receiver, kick returner, punt returner and even some Wildcat quarterback this season.
Clemson QB Deshaun Watson
