2013 Draft Rewind – Le’Veon Bell – Pittsburgh Steelers

What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about LE’VEON BELL: Michigan State, 6013 230 4.56. Junior entry. Started 19 games over two years. Running backs like this are disappearing like dinosaurs and fullbacks. Was part of a two-back rotation as a sophomore. Durable and athletic. Graded out as our 4th best athlete out of 34 backs who competed at the Combine. Prepares like a pro, already dropping ten pounds after the season ended and was sharp in the Spartans’ bowl game and in his Combine workout. Production as a downhill runner who breaks tackles. Work horse type back who is patient, waits for a crease, and slams through it. A North-South runner. Thick hips and thighs. Runs with power and athletic ability. Good foot agility. Led the country in yards after contact. Soft hands and the ability to catch all pass routes. Good eye/hand coordination. Effective blocker in pass protection. Lacks long finish speed. Needs a blocker to turn the corner. He would be prudent to stop hurdling cornerbacks downfield for self preservation purposes. Grades out as a first year starter and will replace a declining starter if drafted into the right scheme. 2012 stats: 1793 yds, 4.7 ypc, 12 TD, 32 rec, 167 yds, 1 TD. OSR:4/34. Second/third round. (A-31 1/2, H-9 5/8, BP-24, SS-4.24).
