Pos: 
Tough run-defending safety with limited upside. Instinctive, quick up the field and shows a good head for the ball. Plays with an aggressive style and wraps up ball carriers. Solid open-field tackler. Works hard to get off blocks and make plays up the field. Possesses a straight-line burst of speed.
Neg: 
Moves better downhill than in reverse. Slow to flip his hips in transition and loses a half-step when he turns to run with opponents downfield. Possesses poor hands for the interception. Performed poorly at the combine.
Analysis: 
Bell is a nice-sized safety with a hard-hitting style, but he’s a marginal athlete with limited range. He's a strong-safety type who must make his mark on special teams to have any chance at the next level.
