Like most Chicago Bears fans watching the draft, my reaction to the announcement of Shea McClellin's selection in the first round was followed by a confused "huh?" All the draft hype I had heard about McClellin was that he was a great fit for a 3-4 team, so I'm sure many of you were asking the same question as me: Why did Chicago just draft a 3-4 linebacker to play as our 4-3 defensive end? With players like Whitney Mercilus, Chandler Jones and Nick Perry all left on the board and all natural 4-3 defensive ends, it's easy to see why the fans may be confused by the selection.
