Scouting Report on Mike Bellamy

by Barry Every - 10/15/2010
  • SpeedAs Good As It Gets
  • SizeDivision I Player
  • StrengthDivision I Player
  • AgilityBlue Chip
  • ElusivenessBlue Chip
On the Hoof: Not the biggest of backs but he does have excellent overall body structure.
Needs Improvement: Can he be that every-down back? Most of his success is in space or running outside the tackle box. He will need to add some size and strength, and do a better job of lifting his feet out of ankle tackles.
Most Impressive: He is a home-run threat every time he touches the ball because of his superior speed. Bellamy possesses soft hands and could line up in the slot in three- and four-wide passing situations. Ideal for a punt or kick returner.
Conclusion: He will not be kept off the field. Either the special teams coach or offensive coordinator will find ways for him to get touches.

Barry Every is a Football Recruiting Analyst for Rivals.com. He has worked in the recruiting offices for Mark Richt at the University of Georgia, Bobby Bowden at Florida State University and Mack Brown at the University of North Carolina
