A gifted high school quarterback, Kenny McKinley was converted into a receiver at South Carolina.
He may get to show off his arm again — or so he's hoping. McKinley wouldn't mind seeing an offensive package designed around his arm.
After all, the "Wildcat" worked well for the Miami Dolphins last season.
"When they found out I played quarterback, that was a big plus for them," McKinley said. "They might have a package they might want to put me in."

For now, the Broncos will settle for his skills at receiver, trading up to take him in the fifth round. Gamecocks coach Steve Spurrier thought enough of McKinley to call him the best receiver he's ever taught.
Those words were appreciated.
"That was just a big statement from him," said McKinley, who finished his career with 207 receptions and 19 touchdowns. "When I heard that he said that, it really got to me. Coach Spurrier really got me to where I am today, coming from playing quarterback in high school and now a pretty good receiver."
