This info was well documented after his rookie season.HereForTheComments wrote: ↑Mon Aug 05, 2019 6:08 amUnless he gained a ton of weight after the combine, there is no way he lost 20 lbs. His playing weight is 225 and he weighed 230 at the combine.djeternal2 wrote: ↑Mon Aug 05, 2019 6:02 amBell is the worst example to bring up in this conversation since he dropped 20 lbs from his rookie year to his second year which ultimately allowed him to be faster & more agile on the field. If he had never lost that 20 lbs I doubt we would have ever seen the top 5-10 RB we see in Bell now.Lord_Varys wrote: ↑Mon Aug 05, 2019 5:41 am
Exaggeration, sure. I have no data behind it. But look, Lev Bell was a 4.60. You see plenty of RBs run in the 4.5s 4.6s range. I understand that weight adjusted speed scores are good correlators, and yet I know and see that all the things a RB does to have success in the NFL and to put up fantasy points has very little to do with breakaway speed.

"In Bell's rookie season, his listed weight was 244 pounds. Pretty heavy for a running back that is known for hurdling opponents.
In an interview with Mark Kaboly of TribLive Radio, Bell declared that his current weight is down to around 225 pounds, give or take. That would be the lightest he has been since before his freshman year at Michigan State.
When asked why he decided to cut weight Bell talked about not only making himself faster, but adding an element of explosiveness that he felt his game was missing in 2013."
