Bell has a ton of wear and tear. He's coming off a 400 touch season. That's crazy. Kevin Smith of Central Florida came off a similar type college campaign and broke down in a year.
I think he's a solid RB, but he doesn't overly excite me. And there is risk with his usage. I see less Steven Jackson and more Ron Dayne.
Well, his opinions are being reinforced by scouts.
He is not even comparable to Ron Dayne.
And I'm pretty sure Smith had knee issues in college.
Ronnie Hillman saw more touches in 2 years at SDST than Bell did in 3 years at Michigan State.
And he has never been hurt or had any major injury.
I don't think he will ever be a Stephen Jackson, but a very good pro. I think he is more Michael Bush -- with better athleticism.
