Le'Veon Bell is a physical specimen of a HB from Michigan State. At just under 6'2" in the range of 245 pounds, Le'Veon Bell is one of the largest HBs in college football. He possesses great athleticism for his size and is a lot of fun to watch. It is quite interesting to see a man Bell's size hurdling a defender like he did in the Boise State game. As a runner, Bell is a true workhorse HB with the ability to carry the ball over 300 times a year. He led the nation in yards after contact despite carrying Michigan State's offense and often receiving less than ideal blocking. He has the ability to spin out of tackles, run through arm tackles, push the pile and use his lethal stiff arm. Probably the most intriguing part of his skill-set, though, is the cuts that he can make at his size. He has very quick feet and is elusive on the second level despite being a very large back. Bell has an ideal NFL build with a very thick lower body. However, Bell needs to be more patient as he will not allow time for his blocks to set-up at times and misses some cutback lanes. He can seem to be almost too much of a decisive north-south runner. He also lacks the second gear to break away.
Bell is also a very effective player in the passing game. He is an excellent pass protector who really uses his size and strength well to stone-wall blitzers. He can cut block and chip effectively too. As a receiver, he has had a few drops but he is typically a sure handed player who has shown the ability to split out wide and catch passes. He is very pro ready in terms of his ability in the passing game.
Bell is pretty much the prototype of the 3 down workhorse HB. His running style, size and athleticism are very reminiscent of both Eddie George and Steven Jackson although I think Jackson and George had better speed coming out. Despite his lack of breakaway speed, Bell will find a starting job somewhere and I think that he will hear his name called somewhere in the second or third round in the 2013 NFL Draft.Experience:
