KC Chiefs 2015 NFL Draft Wish List: Wide Receivers

8 of 11

Now I’ll admit. This one is a bias for me, as I’m a big Nebraska Cornhusker fan, but hey, I’m only human. I watched Kenny Bell play with Nebraska from the beginning of his career in 2011 and now he’s entering the 2015 NFL Draft. What could make that story more complete than my Kansas City Chiefs scooping Bell up in one of the middle rounds?

Through four years with the Huskers, Bell had 181 receptions for 2,689 yards and 22 total touchdowns (21 receiving, one rushing). Year after year, Bell proved to be a reliable receiver for the Cornhuskers, despite them not having the best success recently (I understand they had winning seasons, but let’s not dive any deeper into that).

"Lanky, vertical wide receiver with a second gear. He likes to lull cornerbacks to sleep before hitting the gas and getting over the top of them for big plays. Bell is a little more straight-lined than some teams are looking for, but with reliable hands and an ability to make plays on the ball down the field, he has starter’s traits as a potential No. 2 WR in the league. – NFL.com"

Kenny Bell would not be a starting receiver for the KC Chiefs, but that’s okay! He’d likely be a fourth or fifth round pick, and you don’t draft those guys to be starters necessarily. Maybe someday, but there’d be no rush on Cornhusker Kenny Bell.

Go Big Red!
