Chicago Bears select Shea McClellin, Grade B-

I’m not crazy about this pick for the Chicago Bears. Shea McClellin primarily played with his hand on the ground as a junior at Boise State and was less than impressive. As a senior they moved him around more and the really excelled in a hybrid end/linebacker role.

For this reason, I liked him as a 3-4 linebacker, but he’ll be playing a traditional end role in Chicago.  As a true end, he’s probably more of a developmental prospect than I’d like to see in the top 10.
