2012 NFL Draft: DE Shea McClellin Agrees To 4-Year Contract With Chicago Bears

According to Larry Mayer of ChicagoBears.com, the Chicago Bears have agreed to terms with their top draft pick, DE Shea McClellin:

McClellin played four seasons with the Boise St. Broncos and entered the 2012 NFL Draft as one of the league's top-rated outside linebackers. The Bears chose to keep McClellin at his original position, defensive end, where he accumulated 20.5 sacks and 33 tackles for loss, despite starting only three seasons.

With a 5% sack rate, the Chicago Bears were tied for fourth-worst pass-rushing defense in the league in 2011.
