Choices Montee Ball Le'Veon Bell Vote Comments Show All Comments CentralFloridaB... 27 Apr 2013, 6:56 am I picked Le'Veon Bell. I just think he's the big athletic back that the Steelers have been missing for a few years. I like Ball and think he will be really good too. He's smaller so will be interesting to see how he holds up in the NFL after a few years. You really can't go wrong with either of them. Bucks43201 27 Apr 2013, 9:39 am Where's Bull and Bill?

Because Mont-ay fumbles. http://days.to/7-september/2015 Rock on. cal3713 28 Apr 2013, 2:20 pm Really? I guess this is a joke... his fumble stats are just amazing. 2 career fumbles: http://www.sports-reference.com/cfb/players/montee-ball-1.html 655: Career carries before his first lost fumble. 802: Career touches before his first lost fumble. Poison nuts 27 Apr 2013, 10:43 am Bell. As good as Ball was in college, not sure he'll do a lot as a pro. Hope I'm wrong - I like the kid.

The offseason begins when your season ends. Even then there are no days off. moopdawg 27 Apr 2013, 2:47 pm Steelers do a good job of rotating their backs, so he should hopefully last longer than that. NoVA Buckeye 27 Apr 2013, 8:52 pm He'll probably be the only running back since everyone else loves to carry the ball like a loaf of bread The offseason begins when your season ends. Even then there are no days off. RBuck Mod 27 Apr 2013, 3:42 pm I watched Bell while he was at Groveport. Had to go with the local kid. Long live the southend. Grant Edgell 27 Apr 2013, 4:04 pm As a biased Denver fan I picked Montee Ball because Elway understands the importance of having a consistent back (lost three Super Bowls without one - won two with one). Ball will have every opportunity to become Manning's starting back in Denver because he's an every-down guy and Moreno can't stay healthy. That said I'd have rather seen the Broncos take Lacy, who fell three spots later to Green Bay. Nkohl13 27 Apr 2013, 5:25 pm I picked one because I had to, but don't think that either of them will do anything special. Most likely end up as 2nd or 3rd string backs for a few years. brandonbauer87 28 Apr 2013, 11:35 pm My thoughts exactly. Neither are special enough in my opinion to be an every down back. Both benefited from a system which breeds success. Buckeyejason 27 Apr 2013, 5:44 pm I'd like to pick Bell because he's an Ohio kid..but I don't think he'll be a very good pro. Ball will excel in Denver I think. BUCKEYES BABY! MediBuck 27 Apr 2013, 11:44 pm Bell--but not for his running ability. The kid doesn't have much burst. That said, he is amazing in pass protection and grinds with a lot of toughness in short-yardage situations. Personally, I was hoping my Cardinals would pick him up, but definitely not in the second round. The Steelers overpaid for him. Ball is one of those backs that could either be a solid starter or simply be unable to keep up with the NFL toughness.

AGL Boom777 28 Apr 2013, 6:10 pm Bell because he's an Ohio kid Wherever you are, there you be! ShowThemOhiosHere 28 Apr 2013, 11:23 pm Bell. I see Ball as a guy that is a good back, but will have to be utilized properly for him to be successful. Bell physically is a better choice - power running works anywhere in the NFL. Class of 2010. Buckeye Chuck 29 Apr 2013, 2:22 am I don't see stardom in either one, but I like Ball a little better. To me, Bell is just the latest "volume rusher" out of East Lansing, a better version of Javon Ringer but not by much. And contrary to casual fan opinion, the Steelers have been a pass-first offense for years. Bell won't change that. The most "loud mouth, disrespect" poster on 11W. Buckeyevstheworld 29 Apr 2013, 2:46 am I'm curious to see what Bell can do with a decent O-Line around him. "YOLO" = I'm about to do something extremely ignorant/stupid & I need an excuse to do it.
