"I think you're going to see a guy that consistently makes plays when he's in there to a point where you say, 'Wow, he's there. He's making plays, doing his job and showing a few flashes of spectacular,'" Prohaska told the Chicago Tribune. "Most of all you're going to see a real consistent guy that does his job. You're going to really enjoy the way he plays the game now because he's going to play it with confidence."
“His athleticism allows him to pressure the quarterback,” Emery said. “We want to put him in position where he can make more plays overall.”
McClellin has 6.5 sacks in 28 games.
Head coach Marc Trestman admitted the team is willing to move McClellin around in order to put him in better positions. While he was overall complimentary of McClellin's play, Trestman said they were looking for more impact plays from the defensive end. McClellin had 30 tackles and four sacks in 14 games.
McClellin, Mills and Mannelly were all able to fully participate in practice Thursday. Frey was limited due to a hand injury.
