Observations from Saints morning practice

Times-Picayune - [Full Article]

My "Who's Hot" award from Friday morning's practice goes to fourth-year RB Mike Bell, who flashed an impressive amount of speed and quickness for a 230-pound back.

Granted, they aren't doing any live tackling out there, so the running backs all look good as they breeze through the defense. But Bell in particular stood out on several runs.

Bell has really been the forgotten man in all of the offseason running back talk, with so much attention being paid to bulked-up starter Pierre Thomas and younger backups Lynell Hamilton, P.J. Hill and Herb Donaldson. But Bell looks like the clear front-runner for that #3 TB/power back role.
