Le'Veon Bell: 2nd-Round Steeler Pick

RotoWire.com Staff

Update: The Steelers selected Bell in the second round of the 2013 NFL Draft, 48th overall.

Recommendation: Bell is a throwback runner who lacks speed or flashiness, and he's a nice fit for a Steelers squad desperate for reliability at running back. Bell is big and durable, and he makes the most of each play thanks to his strong vision, excellent patience and fluid short-area movement. Bell isn't an obvious bruiser, but he falls forward and is surprisingly good at slipping through traffic. He's one of the top fantasy targets to emerge from the draft so far, because it's difficult to see guys like Jonathan Dwyer and Isaac Redman holding off Bell for long.
