The Cleveland Browns are going with a WR in round three of the 2022 NFL Draft by selecting David Bell. Bell had three impressive seasons with the Purdue Boilermakers and looks to take his skills to the next level.
Even as the only true threat at receiver during his last year at Purdue, Bell was still able to record over 1,000 yards. One concern is his lack of second gear after the catch, defenders seem to easily catch up to him to make a play. But during his time at Purdue, Bell proved he can process the game and gain leverage against defenders to gain some offensive yards.
Bell is not the speedy downfield wide receiver but he was able to leverage his strengths during his three years at Purdue to make it into the NFL. His ball and body skills should translate into the league and help him secure a spot as a number 2 wide receiver.

Fantasy football impact
Former Purdue wide receiver is headed to Cleveland. The Browns get a solid receiver with great ball and body skills in David Bell. Bell has a chance to become WR2 behind Amari Cooper on this Browns offense. Not likely to make a huge fantasy impact but could be a good late-round pick up as he is likely to see some quality field time this upcoming season.
