A Cornhusker fan favorite, Bell has led Nebraska in receptions in each of his first three seasons in Lincoln. His 52 catches in 2013 marked a career high, but his yards per reception were down more than six yards from his 17.26 average the season before, and his scoring output was cut in half as well. The discrepancies were likely due in part to redshirt freshman Tommy Armstrong Jr. being forced into action earlier than expected when quarterback Taylor Martinez was injured, leading Nebraska to rely more heavily upon a short passing attack. Bell is a better than average route runner who exhibits good separation quickness. He lacks elite speed, but accelerates well enough to make plays in the vertical passing game as well. While he shows natural hands and makes the occasional spectacular catch, he has a tendency to let passes go through his hands at times as well. Nebraska’s short passing game gave Bell the opportunity to showcase his ability to make defenders miss and pick up tough yards after the catch, skills that also helped him to lead the Big Ten with 26.5 yards per kick return in 2013. -Jeremy Hyde, 5/15
