Round 5, Pick 37

The KC Chiefs decided to release Anthony Fasano in the off-season after Travis Kelce had a breakout year in 2014, but the Chiefs need a player that can back up Kelce and be a serviceable back up.

I used my second pick to take Wichita, Kansas native Blake Bell to make it back to back picks that I have taken a player that converted to a different position in his college career.

Bell had a pretty good season as the starting quarterback for Oklahoma in 2013 finishing with 140 completions, 1,648 yards, 12 touchdowns, and five interceptions in 11 games.

In 2014 Bell made the switch to tight end and managed 16 receptions, 214 yards, and four touchdowns.

At 6’6″ tall and 252 pounds Bell provides a big target in the red zone, and has the size to be a more than capable blocker. The problem is like most players that transition to a new position he is raw. He will need to be coached up, but has the makings of a talented player.

Bell would compete with Richard Gordon and Demetrius Harris for the back up tight end job, but shouldn’t be expected to win the job immediately. Bell is very much a pick for the future, and should be given time to develop and learn his position.
