BIO: Three-year starter who posted 213/1,286/16 on the ground and 9/60 as a pass-catcher last season when he was an all-conference selection. Totaled 175/1,096/11 on the ground as a junior after a breakout sophomore campaign of 197/776/6 rushing with 18/97 catching the ball. Performed well at the Combine completing 25 repetitions on the bench and running a pair of forties that averaged 4.42.
POSITIVES: Explosive running back who's made a big move up draft boards the past three months. Tough on the inside, runs with authority through the hole and possesses a straight-line burst of speed. Strong, puts his shoulders into opponents and falls forward when tackled. Improved his patience as a senior, waits for blocks to develop and displays the ability to make the first defender miss.
NEGATIVES: Must improve his blocking intensity. Not a natural pass-catcher. Indecisive running outside of tackles.
ANALYSIS: A hard-working prospect and solid athlete, Bell has the skills which translate well to the next level. Known as a player that does the extras to become better on the football field, Bell possesses the skills to be a primary ball-carrier in the NFL.
