You are right in suggesting that we need another back, being that we are only carrying two right now with the injuries (3 if you include hilliard).
I do not believe that a RB with bell's characteristics are what we need, however.
check this excerpt out:
http://insidesocal.com/ucla/2009/02/...the-nfl-c.htmlunning back Khalil Bell was UCLA's only participant at the NFL combine, and his numbers were mixed. He ran an unimpressive 4.68 seconds in the 40-yard dash and his 15 reps in the 225-pound bench press didn't left him nine shy of being in the top 10 of running backs.
However, he was third in the 60-yard shuttle (11.55 seconds), and tied for fifth in the three-cone drill (6.87) and 20-yard shuttle (4.20).
He isnt a fast guy, and sounds like a less impressive Greene; He is only averaging 2.7 YPC this year. 12 carries, with a long of 18. Take away that long run and he is virtually useless.
If we are going to pick up a RB, we need a 3rd down back.
There wasn't already a thread on him. Thanks for starting one.
Does he put his pants on one leg at a time?
Not sure I've ever seen someone call Khalil Bell a "beast" before. He used to be really fast, though I'm not sure if that's still the case. Loved him in college, fun guy to watch back then.
edit: Don't know what happened to me there. I was thinking of Tatum Bell. I do remember Khalil Bell now though. Not a fan, never thought much of him at UCLA.
