How is he like Marvin at all? Maclin is a pure speed guy. He is shifty and a threat to score in the open field. He can take it 80 yards on any given play. Harrison isn't a burner and relies on being able to find the soft spot in zones and run percise routes. Harrison relies on using exception body control and his great hands. Maclin relies on his track speed and a spread offense. If you pay attention to Mizzou's offense, a lot of the plays for Maclin are jailbreak screens or 3 yard slants. The thinking is that if you put the ball in his hands, he can beat any college LB 10 yards. Maybe you just meant a guy who can replace Marvin Harrison simply by taking his snaps, because Maclin and Harrison couldn't be further apart as players. Essentially, everything that Harrison has made his name doing is what Maclin has struggled to do. The reason you know Maclin's name is because he does nothing that Harrison does. This isn't a Mizzou bash. You could have said the same about Harvin, though he is more of an actual reciever, but in the same grouping.
