Le'Veon Bell is not a happy man right about now.
The Pittsburgh Steelers doesn't have any worries about free agency like many of his NFL teammates and peers do however. Instead, Bell is angry with so called 'NFL Experts' and Mel Kiper of ESPN in particular.
In a long rant from his verified Twitter account, Bell went all in on Kiper as well as Todd McShay.
Bell was picked in the second round of the 2013 NFL draft and made the Pro Bowl in just his second season. But he still isn't happy with how much he was slated by Kiper before being drafted two years ago.
"I think it's so funny how Mel Kiper is just "qualified" to tlk about the draft...dude be wrong with just about everything tho..." was Bell's first blast at Kiper. Then things just descended into a big old rant by the running back.
It seems that Bell is still a bit annoyed with the way that he was projected by all of the mainstream draft analysts. They were sort of right though, Bell did end up being picked in the second round and it wasn't until he lost some weight that he blossomed into the star we saw in Pittsburgh last year.
Kiper's Biggest Fails
But we should still recognise that Mel Kiper has said some things that turned out so very, very wrong about potential prospects when they were coming into the league. It would be remiss of us to leave those out, for comedy's sake at least. Enjoy...
“If he not a successful starting quarterback in the NFL, I’m done. That’s it. I’m out.” - Kiper on Jimmy Clausen.
“Give the Lions credit for going away from their biggest needs to take receiver Mike Williams. … I’ll see you at his Hall of Fame induction.” - Kiper on Mike Williams, who was last seen in the CFL in 2013.
“Three years from now you could be looking at a guy that’s certainly one of the elite top five quarterbacks in this league… look out because the skill level he has is certainly John Elway-like.” - Kiper on JaMarcus Russell.
