2012 NFL Draft Grades: Chicago Bears Get A 'C' From CBS Sports' Pete Prisco

CBS Sports' Pete Prisco doesn't mind the Chicago Bears' first round selection of Shea McClellin, but he doesn't care for the Alshon Jeffery pick and doesn't think Chicago's draft was very deep.

Analysis: They took Shea McClellin in the first round and he will play left end, although a lot of scouts saw him as a 3-4 outside rusher. I think he'll be fine as an end. I didn't like the Jeffrey pick and they didn't get a lot the rest of the way. I do like Hardin.

Grade: C

Prisco calls Hardin -- a safety from Oregon State that Chicago picked up in the third round -- the best pick the Bears made.
