Oklahoma TE Blake Bell's "skill set at [tight end] is intriguing enough to warrant listing" as a diamond in the rough, believes CBS Sports' Rob Rang.
"Realizing that he simply isn't accurate enough to remain at quarterback in the NFL, Bell made the switch to tight end as a senior and though his production was hardly eye-popping (16 catches for 214 yards and four touchdowns), he showed the toughness, work ethic and soft hands necessary to earn middle- or late-round consideration as a developmental prospect at the position," Rang wrote. The 6-foot-6, 259-pound Bell drew comparisons to Lions tight end Joseph Fauria at the Shrine Bowl, according to the Sporting News' Chris Kouffman. That we know of, Bell has worked out for or met with the Arizona Cardinals, Atlanta Falcons, Miami Dolphins and Philadelphia Eagles. "The well-proportioned Bell has workable overall athleticism and excellent bloodlines," Rang wrote. "Both his father (Mark) and uncle (Mike Bell), played on the defensive line in the NFL for the Seahawks, Colts and Chiefs."
