Not only did Shea McClellin grade out the highest of any Bears defender on Sunday vs. the Packers, but he was tops on either side of the ball.

McClellin led the defense with eight tackles and, according to Pro Football Focus, was the Bears’ top performer in the 28-21 loss to the Packers:

Only one Bears defender earned a grade over +1.0 in their first regular season game under new defensive coordinator Vic Fangio. ILB Shea McClellin (+2.5) seems to be handling the transition to inside linebacker well, particularly in run defense. He certainly looks much more natural at the position than he did playing defensive end a few years ago.

ILB Shea McClellin (+2.5)

LT Jermon Bushrod (+2.3)
