With the Bears holding the No. 18 50th overall draft pick, John 'Moon' Mullin says it gives Phil Emery and the Bears some time to find the hidden gem of the 2012 draft class.
The Bears will be holding a press conference today at 3:30 p.m. to introduce their number one draft pick Shea McClellin at Halas Hall. Watch it LIVE on CSN or CSNChicago.com.
With a run on defensive tackles in the early part of the first round, the Bears were able to get the guy they wanted in Shea McClellin. Phil Emery has seven possibilities at No. 19 and McClellin is a player he singled out.
With Chandler Jones and Whitney Mercilus on the board, the Bears decided to go a different route by selecting BSU's Shea McClellin. Bears GM Phil Emery liked McClellin's consistency throughout his career.
