PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) – Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell has fought an uphill battle since coming out of high school when he was only listed as a two-star recruit, and then faced more doubters when he went into the NFL Draft and fell to the second round.
Apparently, Bell has held some animosity against those doubters and couldn’t bite his tongue any longer. Bell took out his frustration on ESPN NFL Draft experts Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay in a series of tweets.
Bell has a leg to stand on after the Pro Bowl season he put up this past year when he single-handedly carried the Steelers’ running back position.
Bell carried the ball 290 times for 1,361 yards, averaging 4.7 yards per carry while finding the endzone 8 times. Bell also caught 83 passes for 854 yards and 3 touchdowns while setting Steelers running back receiving records.
