8. Kenny Bell, WR, Nebraska

Why not add another vertical threat to Matthew Stafford’s arsenal? During his career at Nebraska, Bell was one of the better big play threats in the Big Ten, and a tall target capable of going up to snag jump balls in the end zone and down field in coverage. Though Bell is a stiff athlete and has been a poor route runner at times, the size is hard to ignore, as it’s become a valuable chess piece in any offensive scheme. With a good week, Bell could put himself in the middle round discussion for a team like Detroit that might need to think about adding a few more receivers in the future. At 6’1″, he’s already got the size part down.

Drills to watch: 40 yard dash, 3 cone drill, gauntlet.
