Bell seems to always be mentioned in the 2nd tier of receivers. The NFL has a slew of receivers to sift through as most seasons. David Bell has the potential and consistency to end up as a top receiver in this class.
Look for him to go late first to late 2nd. If he goes later than that you got yourself a steal.
