Shea McClellin to Bears: Video Highlights, Scouting Report and Analysis

Boise State prospects such as Kellen Moore and Doug Martin have received far more media attention than Shea McClellin. However, it's very possible that McClellin develops into the best pro out of this group.

While at Boise State, McClellin recorded 19.5 sacks and 32 tackles for loss, demonstrating his disruptive nature against the offense. His combination of size and athleticism gives him the versatility to line up at either linebacker or defensive end.

Rob Rang discusses McClellin's versatility as a possible linebacker prospect.

Proving much more comfortable than expected considering his lack of experience at the position, McClellin showed good diagnosis skills, quickly attacking gaps in the running game. He took on blocks aggressively, using his long, strong arms to quickly disengage as well as the flexibility and awareness to keep his feet free from the mass of humanity surrounding him near the line of scrimmage.

McClellin should have an impact in the 2012-13 season, as he's talented enough to be an immediate starter. He'll make his presence felt and his ability to get after the quarterback will make it tough to keep him off the field.

Even if he doesn't earn an immediate starting spot, McClellin should have a role as a situational pass-rusher. His explosive second gear will help him attack the edge and work his way into the backfield.

Analysis: A bit of a reach, particularly in a 4-3 system, McClellin can rush the passer, and get at one in a hurry with 4.6 speed. A bit light as a DE, will need to play on passing downs, unless he can stay on the outside as a linebacker.
