They also have NOBODY that's seen more than garbage time snaps at CB (besides Dennard) returning next year. Wouldn't it make more sense to give him an opportunity at CB & let him battle it out with Trae Waynes, Arjen Calhoun & Ezra Robinson next year?
    I was always in favor of leaving him at CB or at least making CB his primary position like last year. Apparently he greatly prefers WR though so hopefully the coaching staff can sell him on CB if they choose to.
    Check back later

    Since when is an assessment of a players professional prospects ragging on him? On another board I discussed how Cousins would at best be a back up player and pointed out what most scouting sites had referenced as to why. The Spartan fans on said board went right to the "You are just a Spartan hater" card within minutes. Right now cbs has him projected as a 4th round pick, and the 12th rated Running Back. Here is their analysis prior to this season:

    Listed at 6-2 and 245-pounds, he has an intriguing blend of size, power and speed, showing the ability to run away from defenders or also run over them. Bell, who is also a reliable receiving target, carries his weight well and has the footwork to make would-be tacklers miss, but also isn't afraid to lower his pads and deliver some blows, keeping his legs churning through contact.

    He needs to be more productive and show more consistent vision between the tackles, but he has intriguing tools and could move up draft boards with a big 2012 season.

    Now his longest run this year was 40 yards, which he did a few times. However, he also had 4 games where he did not have a carry for over 10 yards.
    Greed is not protecting what you have. It's demanding what you don't have on the backs of others

    Bell is an excellent college back. How that translates though is questionable. Thats all i'm saying.

    Wasn't Bell on some Heisman watch lists, back in September?

    I think he could be a better version of Shonn Greene which could be valuable in the NFL. If he went to a team like the Packers in the second round I wouldn't feel good about it.
    I realize I'm putting this here for you to read... but please, don't talk about it.

    I dont see any way he gets picked in the 2nd round unless MIllen is drafting
