  • For the people who think Bell is undersized....

    Jacob Bell is 6-4 295

    Alan Faneca is 6-5 307(only one inch and 12 pounds.)

    Ryan Lilja is 6-2 290(shorter and weighs less)

    Jake Scott 6-5 295

    Mark Setterstrom 6-4 314

    Steve Hutchinson 6-5 313

    The only one who is Much bigger that i have looked up was our boy Richie Incognito 6-3 330

    But the point of this thread is that some of the good guards in the NFL weigh around the same weight as bell with a few exceptions. this wasnt a list of my opinion of the best guards, just a few decent ones who came to mind, what do you think?

    I think he will be a good guard. He's already got good stats. He's a big guy, strong player, and will make a great part to any team.

      Good smaller players in the NFL make up for their size with their ability. Bob Sanders, Jacob Bell, Lito Sheppard, Robbert Mathis, etc.

        Leonard Davis is huge. He is about 354 now, but has been as much as 380

                  As I was watching the Rams yesterday I noticed that Bell was out of the lineup and Wragge was playing in his place.

                  Anybody know what was going on with Mr. Bell?

                  (Or is it more accurate to ask if anybody really cares at this point....)

                  Jacob Bell wasn't kidding
                  by jbell15
                  When he said he was going to beef up this off-season.
                  He added 15-20 lbs and says he wants to get near 300.
                  Check out the article on the rams website.
                  I'm stoked to hear about his progress.

                  Is he really a bad player? Now I haven't been able to watch the past two games. So I don't know how he's been playing.

                  I'm not sure if this applies, but if the guys around you are terrible, would that make you terrible? What I mean, is since the line is complete garbage, is that making Bell look bad or is he actually playing bad?

                  Greco Vs. Bell

                  Bell started the game, and then came out after 2 series (3?), and Greco played the rest of the way....Here is what seems to be the truth:

                  Just my opinion…I didn’t know Bell was so weak, until I looked at him play after play. This is how I see him and Greco:

                  Teams find a weak guy and exploit him. It seems like when Jacob Bell plays, tackles push him off balance, and his shoulders are out of position (not square) all the time and therefore he has no power on most of his blocks; and then when a running back changes direction toward Jacob Bell’s space, Bell has done nothing to clear his man out of the way and the back gets no yards, or loses yards….versus when John Greco comes in, they don’t toss him around, at all. Huge difference to me. Honestly, I am not sure if I have ever seen such a huge disparity in theoretical strength required for the position and the actual strength the player has.

                  I have more hope for Tye Hill making a comeback, than JB being a good guard for the Rams….of course Bell says he is 15-20 pounds heavier…hmmm, sounds easy...just gain weight....

                  A center in NFL gets ‘help’ on straight ahead running plays, probably 90% of the time. Every O line coach assumes this, when diagramming plays. Only a few centers can take on a nose tackle and even managed a stand off. (Jason Brown is one!) So, it is ok to be ‘weak’ at center.

                  But, being ‘weak’ at guard, well that is a big problem…unless you work for the Colts or Mike Martz (semi joke,there)

                  Tom Nutten weighed about 280 ;lbs, which is why he got no push in the straight ahead run game, except for a few games. Nutten was a great pass blocker. Those old 80’s 49er teams had small guards too, but their ‘angle’ block schemes invented by the their genius OL coach, McKittrick, allowed for smaller, quicker guards. Those guards were made for pass blocking, pulling and screens. Jacob Bell would have been very successful, like Nutten, in the Rams GSOT offense….or playing for the Colts Run-lite offense, Bell would be a good fit too.

                  The moment Greco came replaced Bell against the ***** (week 16), the Rams line look solidified and they didn’t get pushed around on his side…Sometimes your brain plays tricks…could there be such a difference between these guys? How could Bell be starting? AM I high? How did Bell even start for a power run team like Tennesee? I must be wrong about him.

                  So, I thought I would make a comparision between Greco and Bell…in light of the emphasis on power blocking, it becomes apparent to me that even with 15 pounds Bell will not be adequate….though Jason Brown will help him a lot this year, if he does start!

                  Greco, being a good tackle in college (similar to David...

                  Why has Jacob Bell lost so much weight?

                  I've read that he's down to around 280. That's not good for an OG. What happened?
                  If you watched the Rams play every day, you'd lose your appetite too.
