RB Le'Veon Bell is a Steeler

The Steelers were rumored to be interested in Ahmad Bradshaw, but their interest level probably dropped precipitously following what they did in the second round of Friday's draft. The Steelers selected Michigan State running back Le'Veon Bell.

Fantasy Analysis:

The Steelers were going to take a running back during the first half of this draft, we all knew that. This pick is a rather strange one for me, because when I look at the Steelers' backfield, I see an area that needs an infusion of speed, someone more lively than Isaac Redman @ired33 and Jonathan Dwyer @JDwyer27. Bell is not that type of player. He is a hard-charging back who pushes piles with his strong lower body and is a fine receiver. But he can handle a full load of carries -- he took on 671 during his three years with the Spartans -- and he might be asked to do that this season. At the very least, Bell, at 6 foot 1, 230 pounds, should rack up a good number of touchdowns.
