Prospect Visit #18 – DE Shea McClellin (Boise St)

DE Shea McClellin is the latest visitor to OBD

The Bills have now had 18 prospects reportedly come into their facilities with the announcement today that Shea McClellin will be visiting the Buffalo Bills. This news come from McClellin himself via a SIRIUS radio interview earlier the weekend.  McClellin also represents a continued trend and interest the Bills have in pass rushers despite signing two pass rushers this offseason already.

McClellin benefited from a strong senior season, capped off by a very good week in Mobile at the Senior Bowl. He has been known for making plays all over the field and at one point could of easily have been considered one of the more dynamic and versatile pass rushers who was flying under the radar. He has a variety of pass rush moves that he’ll use to keep the OT off balance and guessing.

One of the issues with McClellin is that he’s a bit of a tweener, he doesn’t really have a natural position. Thankfully he does have enough size to be considered at a number of different positions unlike other tweener prospects in this draft. Another concern is that McClellin is more of an effort based production guy. That’s not to knock him for working hard but you want a guy who is good enough in his moves to people solely with that not just have to work through them snap after snap.

Right now there is a lot of hype surrounding McClellin’s draft stock, we see him as the 9th best DE prospect and 64th overall. There have been some rumblings that McClellin may be sneaking up to the 1st Round for a team like New England but we think the Bills will see him as 2nd Round option for them.
