Playing at what has been a relatively bad Marshall team, Albert McClellan has failed to garner the national attention that he deserves. Even as a freshman, the 6-2, 252 pound defensive end was a menace to the opposing offense. He started five games as a true freshman and totaled 40 tackles, 7.0 tackles for loss and 3.0 sacks. It was the following season in 2006 when McClellan really came on strong and earned a variety of conference and national accolades. During that season, he led Conference USA with 19.0 tackles for loss and 11.0 sacks. He missed the 2007 campaign with a knee injury and that was one reason why his junior campaign in 2008 was not as promising as many had hoped. He overcame the injury and still earned first-team All-Conference USA honors, but he finished the year with just 2.5 sacks and 4.5 tackles for loss. The injury can be partially to blame, but mostly the poor numbers were due to constant double teams. The same thing can be said for the 2009 season where McClellan has 7.5 tackles for loss and 3.0 sacks through 11 games. McClellan should still be considered one of the top 15 senior defensive ends in this class when projecting to the NFL. If he has a good senior week and NFL Combine, his stock could shoot up fast and he could be gone by the second or third round. 1/24 Update: McClellan is seen as a tweener in the NFL right now and he will likely need to make the move from defensive end to outside linebacker. His workouts leading up to the draft will be the big difference. On many draft boards McClellan is way down the list and might not even be drafted, but he should move up to at least the fifth or sixth round once he shows the scouts that he has the skills to play as a rushing outside linebacker.
