Ronnie Bell made the expected move Thursday afternoon, officially declaring for the 2023 NFL Draft. He previously accepted an invite to the Senior Bowl, all but sealing his intentions.

 Bell has spent the past 5 seasons with the Wolverines and was 2-time captain for the program. He suffered an ACL injury halfway through Michigan’s first game of the 2021 season.

But Bell bounced back in a big way, playing his best season yet in 2022. Bell totaled 62 receptions for 889 yards and 4 touchdowns, averaging over 60 receiving yards per game. Across his career, bell has totaled 2,269 yards and 9 touchdowns.

Because of his injury in 2021 he could have stayed for one more year in Ann Arbor, but with the year he just put up his decision was a fairly easy one. Bell is likely to be a mid-round draft pick, 4-6 depending on his performance at the upcoming combine.
