The Kansas City Chiefs continue to mine through potential prospects in the 2012 NFL draft. The latest one is Boise State outside linebacker Shea McClellin. Aaron Wilson of Scout.com reports the Chiefs are one of 11 teams who have visited with or conducted a private workout with McClellin.
Michael Lombardi said on NFL Network this week that McClellin is a very easy player to scout because he can play multiple positions. He lined up at defensive end, outside linebacker and inside linebacker.
He's considered a late first, early second round prospect. He went 39th to the St. Louis Rams in the Arrowhead Pride mock draft. He stands 6'3" and weighs 260 pounds.
Back in March, NFL Draft Scout pegged him as a rising prospect.
LB Shea McClellin quietly wowed scouts at Boise State's Pro Day. After scouting McClellin primarily as a defensive end over his Boise State career, I came away very impressed with his ability to drop back and play outside linebacker during the Senior Bowl. McClellin, who weighed in at 257 pounds Thursday, was asked to perform in defensive line and linebacker drills and was "fantastic" in both.
