Stephen Jackson recently said that Bell was the running back coming out of college that was the most like him. Let's hope so.

Could have gotten Bell in the third, but I'm okay with this. Comparisons to Steven Jackson.

I know its bleacher report. But its a good overall picture of Le'veon Bell.

Daniel Jeremiah, a former Raven's scout on Le'veon Bell:

Le'Veon Bell is a good fit for the pro game...His ability to block/catch has some pass happy teams excited.

Excels in pass game, could score a lot of TDs.

NFL.com states Bell has LeGarrette Blount comparisons.

Nah, I'd say he could be better possibly. He had the combine's fastest 3-cone amongst running backs. That's impressive at his size.

Like the pic... in Rd 3-4 maybe. Could have picked up same quality in rd 3. Arthur Brown was my pick in Rd. 2.

I preferred Arthur Brown over Bell as well. Now we get to see him crack our heads with the Ravens.

I had him going to the Steelers...but in round 3. I'm ok with the pick.

Starting to see the RB's come off the board now. Maybe a Bell caliber of back would have been gone by the 3rd? Hopefully we'll find a second round talent in the 3rd, to try to balance things out a bit. I'm Ok with Stedman Bailey if they take him, but really think we need to focus on getting the best DB that is available with our next pick.

I just watched a couple highlight videos on Youtube of Le'Veon Bell. There were a lot of big holes for him to run through, he takes a lot of runs to the outside (it will be more difficult to get outside of an NFL caliber linebacker), and I didn't see a lot of broken tackles for a big running back. He did looked quick, caught passes and used blocks well. I also didn't see any blitz pickup, so I'm not sure what he'll be like pass protecting for Ben.

I think he may have been drafted a round too early.

The general consensus seems to be, he's a soft back in a big back body.
