As one of the breakout performers in 2021 and the beneficiary of transfer additions in 2022, South Carolina tight end Jaheim Bell will get a chance to put his talents on full display with passes from former top draft prospect Spencer Rattler. He will also have no shortage of scouts at each of his SEC games throughout the year, ready to track his progress toward becoming the next great NFL tight end.
According to PFF’s Mike Renner, there is one team which stands out as a perfect fit for the breakout star in the NFL, providing an MVP with another offensive weapon. The Green Bay Packers could pick Jaheim Bell in the draft to fill their longstanding hole at tight end and help appease Aaron Rodgers.
“The Packers have tried throwing a couple of third-rounders at the tight end position to get some production from the spot, but so far nothing has stuck,” Renner wrote for PFF. “Bell can change that with his ability after the catch. The Packers offense already does a good job of scheming touches for the position, and Bell could maximize those.”
In 2021, he finished with 497 receiving yards and five touchdowns, averaging 16.6 yards per catch on 30 receptions. He also added seven carries for 40 yards. On3 ranks Bell as one of the top 10 tight ends entering the 2022 season as well, anticipating another big season of growth.
Jaheim Bell lands NIL deal
South Carolina tight end Jaheim Bell is putting his NIL value to use, landing a partnership with La Porte, a Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram dealership in Indiana. As part of the endorsement, the Georgia native posted a graphic on his social media pages and will be able to drive a car from the lot.
Jaheim Bell posted, “Huge shoutout to La Porte CDJR for getting me right with some new wheels.”
The graphic also identifies him as an official partner of the dealership and shows the tight end dressed up with a red coat and white turtleneck. Bell posted another picture in addition to the endorsement, showing a red Dodge Charger.
Bell saw his On3 NIL Valuation jump more than $300,000 in one week, moving him into the NIL 100 and growing his brand by more than 800 percent. With new data entered from his most recent ventures, the proprietary algorithm shows his current market value in deals.
