3. Vonn Bell, 5-11 205, Ohio State
Bell helped lead the Buckeyes to a national championship in 2014. The junior was named second-team All Big Ten in 2015.
Experts like Dane Brugler of CBSSports.com point to Bell’s skill in man coverage as a major attribute. However, there are concerns about Bell’s tackling ability. From Brugler:
"Inconsistent breaking down in space with a bad habit of waiting on the ballcarrier and playing on his heels, causing him to be run over at the contact point."
Robert Blanton much?
Perhaps the comparison to Roadkill Robert is a bit harsh, but nevertheless many scouts have concerns about Bell’s tackling. His coverage ability is what makes him intriguing. Would Zimmer take him on and try to fix his problems as a tackler?
