BIOGRAPHY: Two-year starter who led the Bruins in rushing after his senior and junior seasons. Rushing totals last year included 141/397/7 with pass catching numbers of 10/65/1. Career totals of 142/795/5 came as a junior, when he also added 13/93 as a pass catcher.

POSITIVES: Bell has the size and skill to play in a power running game at the next level. He's been moderately productive throughout his college career, but he must quickly step up his game to make it out of camp this summer.

NEGATIVES: Overall game lacks speed and quickness. Cannot beat opponents around the corner. Lacks the ability to elude defenders or create yardage.

ANALYSIS: Nice-sized interior ball carrier who picks up the tough yardage. Strong in his lower body, keeps his feet driving up the field, and bounces off defenders, picking up yardage off initial contact. Drives his shoulders into defenders and then falls forward for extra yardage. Solid receiver out of the backfield who uses his frame to shield away defenders and make the catch.

PROJECTION: FA
