Turn to Topps for an inside look at Pittsburgh Steelers rookie RB Le’Veon Bell! Bell impressed scouts and Spartans fans alike while rushing for 1,740 yards and 12 touchdowns for Michigan State as a junior in 2012.

There’s little doubt when SB Nation’s Michael Bean made his latest draft profile video on Alabama ILB Dont’a Hightower, he was thinking of his Pittsburgh Steelers.
Bean, known by many on Behind The Steel Curtain as “Michael Bean” (nothing really changed) has been heading up an excellent draft profile series for SB Nation’s YouTube effort. Along with Hightower, there are 24 other prospects highlighted, all cleverly written (by Bean) and excellently produced.

It’s grainy and Golden Days of Cinema feel give each video a unique angle in comparison to the hundreds of other similar effort that fall short in the entertainment arena.

Despite a nice senior season, Brooks did not receive an invite to the NFL scouting combine in late February and was the biggest snub of the offensive linemen draft hopefuls not in Indianapolis. During his career at Miami of Ohio he played both guard spots and some left tackle well. His thick build dictates Read more […]
