Offensive Tackle- Cameron Bell

Cameron Bell is a monster of a man standing 6 foot 7 weighing nearly 350-pounds. The Toledo product is yet again a draft hopeful, but like the other two on this list has the potential to go undrafted.

More from Detroit Lions

The Detroit Lions have plenty of issues on their offensive line, and adding a player like Bell is a risk worth taking.  He’d be a long shot to make the Detroit Lions final roster, but if there was any position that needs depth, it’s the offensive line and the tackle position in particular.

The Lions wisely parted ways with Rick Wagner this offseason and signed the Vaitai mentioned above to be his replacement unless he’s moved to a guard position.  Bell started at right tackle for the Toledo Rockets in 2018 &19.  His first season was a redshirt year, followed by two seasons as a backup before cracking the starting lineup.

Toledo produced the second-best offense in the MAC in 2018 where Bell started 12 games at right tackle and finished as the top-scoring team.  It was more of the same in 2019, Bell started 11 games at right tackle and one at left tackle and played a significant role in a Rockets rushing attack that finished ranked 19th in the country.

light. Trending. A complete seven-round mock draft

Bell completed a major in history and was also named Academic All-MAC, along with being a nominee for All-American Academic.  The Detroit Lions are in the market for a backup right tackle, so why not take a chance on a large-bodied man like Bell.
