The Cleveland Browns continued rebuilding their passing attack by adding rookie David Bell out of Purdue in the third round of the 2022 NFL Draft. Bell consistently drew targets at a high rate in his time as a Boilermaker, culminating in a 93-catch and 1,286-yard output in his third CFB season. Bell struggled to create explosive plays at a high rate -- combine that with his 4.65-second 40 time, and his draft slide shouldn't come as much of a surprise. Many in the Fantasy community had Bell ranked as a top-eight WR entering the draft, but he wound up being just the 16th wideout off the board.

Bell's draft day slide is a bit concerning, but his landing spot in Cleveland as the heir apparent to slot weapon Jarvis Landry feels like an ideal fit. He is worth consideration as a top-10 receiver and early second-round pick for dynasty rookie draft purposes, but just how highly should Bell be ranked at the position in season-long leagues as a rookie?
