David Bell WR Purdue Scouting Report

Position rank: 16
40-yard dash time: 4.49-seconds
Height: 6-2, Weight: 205 lbs
Strengths
  • Does not have exceptional straight-line speed but takes advantage of open seams when his quarterback is on target.
  • Has long arms to stiff-arm defensive backs in the open field. Willing to lower his pads to run through tackles for extra yardage. Goes over the middle, can spin out of tackles and take the big hit.
  • Does not possess top breakaway speed, though he's rarely caught from behind.
  • A versatile weapon, proving to be effective inside in the slot and outside on the perimeter. Makes plays at all levels of the field.
  • A savvy, natural pass-catcher with reliable hands and very good focus. Snatches the ball out of the air and shows the concentration to make acrobatic catches look easy.
  • Has a knack for getting open and is a quarterback's best friend - passers just need to toss the ball in his area and he'll come down with it.
  • Strong runner with the ball with enough agility to make defenders miss in the open field.
  • Good effort and technique as a blocker for his size. Can beat the press with elusiveness or physical contact. Runs crisp routes with sharp cuts.
Weaknesses
  • Does not always use his hands to secure deep throws, allowing the ball into his pads and chest.
  • Comes off the snap high and upright, and doesn't get to top speed quickly. Not sudden or elusive.
