--- YOU: People are complaining about choosing Bell in the 2d. If they hadn't taken him, he wouldn't have lasted to their pick in the third. In addition to being a "big back", he also has less wear and tear on him than Montee Ball. See stats below:
LeVeon Bell: 21 years old; college stats: 3 years/671 carries; 3346 yards; 33 touchdowns; 78 Receptions
Montee Ball: 22 1/2 years old; college stats: 4 years/ 924 carries; 5140 yards; 77 touchdowns; 59 receptions
If you assume the Steelers were committed to taking a RB in Round 2, which player would you rather have?
ME: Personally, I had no issue with that pick. I rated RB as one of their top three needs.
