Bell is an interior defender with decent lateral quickness and power at the point of attack. He lacks the overall mass and anchor to eat up blocks inside, though. He has enough foot quickness and hand usage to work his way around blockers but might find his success rate plummet against NFL-caliber competition. Bell has traits to get a look as a one-gapping, even-front nose tackle but might need to fight for a spot as an undrafted free agent.

-Good swipe-and-slide move to sneak around initial block.

-Slow to come off blockers and make a tackle in his gap.
-Has leverage but not enough anchor to control the rep.
