In case this means anything to you guys:
They gave him DAN FUCKING HAMPTON'S NUMBER. This is how high they are on him. Deprecated Browser Error
I think that says more than anything we could say about speed or how Emery feels that he'll contribute on ST and a hell of a lot more than anything some scouting report saying that he was a third rounder ever will.

Here is what I know about our 1st round pick:
Shea Mcclellin is 6'3" not 6'6".
(6'6" was shown during the draft even though I've seen two other sites list his height at 6'3".)
As for history of injuries he was said to have had a few concussions.
(Supposedly since he started using a new helmet there hasn't been an issue.)
The Patriots and the Packers were going to pick him. They loved this guy.
(I sat with my father, who is a huge Packer fan, during the draft. He went on and on about Shea and he said that the Packer fanbase was all hoping to get him. Instead they got Perry, a small DE very much like a few guys they already have. So we screwed them over. There was a camera set up in GB. You could see the Packers coaches in their war room looking disordered. Packers fans were posting so much BS on the bears nfl page trying to vent their frustration.)
The teams that are logical fits for McClellin and believed to have interest in him: the San Diego Chargers, Baltimore Ravens, Green Bay Packers, Chicago Bears, Houston Texans, Pittsburgh Steelers and the New York Jets.
He is regarded as a potential first-round draft target expected to go no later than early in the second round.
He is a fast-rising draft prospect because of his relentless style, pass-rushing skills and positional versatility.
He lined up everywhere from defensive end, outside linebacker and inside linebacker. He has drawn comparisons to former Denver Broncos linebacker Karl Mecklenburg to Packers outside linebacker Clay Matthews.
When you add all this up it doesn't look bad at all. In case you haven't noticed half of all picks end up being busts. Because of this fact I can't grade Emery on a single pick. I'll wait to see how the rest of the draft. Then I'll wait until the season is almost over before I give my final analysis on how good our GM did.

Haha. Speed means nothing but the bench press is a sign of failure.

The bench press test at the Combine did hurt Peter Konz, who I think only had like eighteen or nineteen reps. Still, it's not a big indicator of how good a player is going to be.

As Perry Como once sang;
"You've got to accentuate the positive
Eliminate the negative
And latch on to the affirmative
Don't mess with Mister In-Between
You've got to spread joy up to the maximum
Bring gloom down to the minimum
Have faith or pandemonium's
Liable to walk upon the scene..."
I'm sure I watch only about a tenth of US college football games,
that the average poster on this board does, and I know nothing about this guy,
but I do root hard for players that don't have to be motivated to earn a salary that 99 per cent of us will never see ourselves, that have earned a reputation of being relentless, and exhibit the desire to excel.
If your team doesn't have one of the first 5 picks, you really can't ask for more.
Unless a guy gets cut outright, I'd give anyone other than a punk who get's in shit every other Monday,
at least 3 years to prove their worth.
There are indefinite amount of ifs in this game, so I'm going to offer mine -
If his strengths that I highlighted are still evident three years from now, he'll not only be a starter,
but he'll be a Chicago Bear stud, and from the team that has the most busts in Canton, that will be awsome.

I know, I keep seeing that he is said to be 6'3" on several sites. But after we drafted him it said on the screen Shea Mcclellin 6'6". It must have been a typo or a mistake. I believe he is 6'3".
