Pick is in, #230 - DE, Quinton Bell

Recommended Posts

Don't see why he wouldn't be able to contribute on ST at least. Big dude with WR speed can cover kicks. He can take Wilber's spot with the added upside to contribute on D down the road.

I'd think it may be better to keep him at DE and use him as a specialist package rusher, wouldn't have to worry about LB assignments, coverage and soon then. If he came in as a LB and only ever rushed you're tipping your hand to the blitz and giving the OC a head start. With that said, he has a very steep climb and probably is a practice squad type player the first year or two or very end of the roster bubble player.

You may be right. He's just so small rn that I can't see him playing snaps for the foreseeable future.

You guys man, you love that kool aid. Watching the short vid on twitter of these guys going through the tackling dummies, Ferrell, Crosby, then Bell - it's clear those guys are DEs and Bell still has little clue. They're using leverage to get bend, aggressive, they have a sense of the position and how to use their body leverage and weight to generate power. Bell has no clue how to put the full movements of being a defensive end together. No way he see snaps unless he makes a radical shift. His technique is nowhere near NFL level.

Well duh. It's going to take more than training camp. But he'll also have better coaching. He's at new position as well.
