Draft Profile: Bio
Jaheim Bell, originally from the University of South Carolina and later at Florida State, showcased his talents notably in his sophomore year with 497 receiving yards and 5 touchdowns from 30 receptions. In 2023, at Florida State, he made an impact with 39 catches for 503 yards for an average of 12.9 yards per catch, 2 TDs, and an excellent QB rating when targeted of 117.7. In pass protection, he gave up 3 pressures and a sack. Bell, recognized for his versatility, was a 3-star recruit and earned second-team All-ACC honors in 2023.
Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Struggles in blocking, and often gets overpowered at the point of attack.
  • Requires improvement in physicality, particularly in traffic and at the top of routes.
  • Limited effectiveness in run schemes due to size and strength.
  • Remarkable open-field speed, demonstrating the ability to consistently outrun linebackers and safeties
  • His agility and agility are exceptional for a player in the tight end position
  • YAC threat, Bell shows the capability to add dynamic and additional yardage post-reception.
  • Impressive in ball tracking and showing great flexibility, Bell has the ability to adjust and make difficult catches
  • Is comfortable moving laterally - excelling in executing crossers, wheel routes, and seam routes effectively.
  • Displays decent directional changeability and contact balance, enabling him to navigate through defenders and maintain possession after contact.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Lacks the traditional build for a standard NFL tight end, which could challenge his fit in conventional tight end roles at the professional level.
  • Faces difficulties in blocking, often finding himself overpowered at the point of attack due to his current physical stature.
  • Needs to show more physicality - particularly evident in traffic and at the top of routes
  • Limited effectiveness in run schemes due to his size and strength constraints
Scouting Report: Summary
Standing at 6'3" and 239 pounds, Bell defies the traditional mold of a tight end, often playing as a versatile H-back or slot receiver. His exceptional movement skills and agility in open space set him apart, allowing him to excel in multiple route concepts. Additionally, Bell demonstrates the ability to make plays after the catch, showcasing excellent change of direction and contact balance.

However, it's essential to address some notable concerns. Bell's size and strength limitations present significant challenges in blocking situations, making him ineffective as an on-the-ball tight end by NFL standards. His struggles in this aspect may limit his versatility within certain offensive schemes. Furthermore, his shorter stature for a tight-end position and occasional concentration drops are areas of concern that must be addressed for his development as a reliable pass-catching option at the next level.

Despite these challenges, Bell's outstanding athleticism and potential for YAC make him an outstanding candidate for teams seeking an athletic H-back with high-level receiving skills. While his road to becoming a starting tight end may be hindered by his physical limitations, his versatility and playmaking ability should not be underestimated. Bell's journey in the NFL may require some time for development, but his unique skill set could provide valuable contributions in the right offensive system, making him a compelling prospect for NFL scouts and coaches.
