The opinions of draft analysts vary widely on Bell, who left MSU as the seventh-leading rusher in school history despite playing only three seasons. ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. predicts Bell will be drafted in the third or fourth round.

Joyner says Bell is overrated because while he gains a lot of yards after contact, he does so because he isn't fast enough to avoid contact.

"This showed up in the four games the Spartans played against teams that ended the season ranked in the top 25 in rushing yards allowed per game last season," Joyner writes. "In those contests, Bell carried the ball 89 times and gained only 332 yards, totals that equate to a mediocre 3.7 yards per carry."

From The Detroit News:

I'm sure this is going to only get worse in the NFL.
Pretty damn idiotic analysis right there. Top 25 run defenses are going to hold most running backs to sub-par numbers, especially if they are running behind a mediocre line like Bell was.
