    I don't think we'll get a good idea until training camp.

    But I will say I think he has an uphill battle. He'll have to really work his way up the depth chart. Possible? Sure. But tough.

    He's way down on the depth chart its he really does have huge uphill climb. Imo I think he will be on the Practice Squad.

    Dont count him out though. I mean Rod Smith started his career on the practice squad and look. Smith has made it to the pro bowl many times. Just because we havent heard a lot about him does not mean he isnt good.

    Ya he has alot of people in front of him, he runs hard and is big, I think he makes the team and steals some carries by mid season. He will get a fair chance in preseason, just like TD did in game 4 of the preseason...

    I didn't know he was needing Physical Therapy.... LOL!!

    Ok, bad joke....

    It's probably too early to tell. If I were guessing right now, I would think practice squad.

    Bell I am sure is doing fine.. He has a lot of potential in the future of course he needs a lot of work. He is going to be more of a project and could quite possible compete in a couple years.

    Also because they signed him means they would like to devote time and invest on him for the future.. I don't see him getting to many snaps this pre-season but he should year after and year after that be able to compete.

    This one is deserving of a double .

    Other than that best of luck to him, if there is one team an unknown RB can become an all-pro is the Broncos.
    Why do you say that? 1/20? That is terrible. Bell has all the tools to contend for the #1 job his ROOKIE year.


    Hence the word: contend, don't take it the wrong way.

    I have to disagree with you West. I really think he is going to be more of a project then anything


    It will take him a good 3 years to be a back in NFL. Why I say that is.. Like I mentioned Pre-draft how he would not be drafted or atleast around 7th round.

    He does have a lot of potential to be very good in the NFL someday. Someday will not be any time real soon. Let me mention some of the thing I have noticed about this cat. I like Mike Bell and very happy he is a Bronco so I am just listing the negatives and not everything I like about him.


    Needs a lot of space to run.

    Does not run between tackles very well at all.

    Not tough.. can not say that any more simple then he goes down easy

    DOES NOT KICK THROUGH ARM TACKLES

    he plays small

    has happy feet in the hole and loses concentration

    bobbles ball to much when defender is in close proximity and has small hands not a good mix which had him to have a lot of Fumble problems in college

    lacks long speed to go the distance.. gets tracked down

    not good at blocking

    How as a rookie will he win an NFL job if he couldnt win a college starting RB job at Arizona?



    Its way to early to tell about him yet

    I agree you can't compair due to back up and what not I want to say he was pretty consistant in college with his touches and a lot of teams in college share the load.. I mean A LOT of teams.

    He averaged (dont hold me to this) between 4-5 yards a carrie last 3 years in college.
