It's hard to get much feel for the talent level of most of the Bears' rookie draft picks. There first day of minicamp served as a slow learning period for the team's newest members.
First round pick Shea McClellin said he was happy his contract was completed and credited his agent for getting it finalized. He said he thought he had a good first day at minicamp.
Coach Lovie Smith reiterated McClellin will be used as a hand-on-the-ground pass rusher.
Second round pick Alshon Jeffery looks like the real deal--big, fast and athletic. He made lots of great catches during practice. However, Jeffery left practice with leg cramps with about 20 minutes remaining.
