He also goes on to say that out of Bell's 382 Carries, only 40 failed to get across the LOS and of those 40, only 21 were stopped for negative yardage. To me, that is a mind-blowing stat right there. It shows that he can be counted on to be a starting NFL running back that can handle 20-30 carries a game. What's more telling about Bell is his Touchdown distances in 2012. ALL of them were within 20 yards of the Endzone, which means he will at the very least find a niche as a Goal Line/Redzone specialist in the NFL if he isn't able to handle the rigors of being a Franchise Running Back. I am getting VERY excited about Bell's future potential with the Steelers.
