McCellin is a do-it-all type of player.  He has played DE, OLB, and ILB forBoiseState.  He has performed very well versus VT from last season and Georgia this year.  He never stops going towards the ball.  His first step is dynamic.  What surprises me is his ability in coverage.  He changes direction well and his hip movement and foot agility are near elite.  Every team could find a place for this guy but teams that value versatility would get the most out of him.  Teams such as the Jets, Patriots, Steelers, Ravens, Giants, Packers, Lions, and 49ers.
