The Bears took Boise State linebacker Shea McClellin with the 19th pick in the 2012 NFL draft and immediately moved him to defensive end. While McClellin has the speed and instincts to be a playmaker in the NFL, he is an awkward fit at defensive end.
McClellin was a star a Boise State in the team's 3-4 defense, but he wasn't just a pure pass-rusher. At 6'3" and 260 pounds, he is a bit undersized to play defensive end in Chicago's 4-3 defense, and he'll have to get a whole lot stronger.
During his four years at Boise State, McClellin racked up 130 tackles, 20.5 sacks and four interceptions.
Having watched hours of tape on him before the draft, I thought his best fit would be as an outside linebacker in a 3-4. I was surprised the Bears took him at No. 19, and while I think he'll eventually be a solid NFL player, I'm not a fan of him playing defensive end in a 4-3.
