Many speculated that McClellin would be drafted by the division rival Green Bay Packers, but on Thursday night the Chicago Bears selected the Outside Linebacker out of Boise State. He is the first defensive player selected by the Bears in the first round since 2004. The pick makes sense as he adds to an aging defense in Chicago, and will be playing with many great players with years of experience. McClellin brings intensity at his position and can be compared to players like Clay Mathews and Brooks Reed. Overall, Bear fans should be happy with this pick. The 2nd and 3rd rounds start on Friday night at 7:00 eastern time and expect the Bears to target positions like Offensive Tackle, Wide Receiver and Cornerback.
