On the Hoof: Not the biggest of backs but he does have excellent overall body structure.
Needs Improvement: Can he be that every-down back? Most of his success is in space or running outside the tackle box. He will need to add some size and strength, and do a better job of lifting his feet out of ankle tackles.
Most Impressive: He is a home-run threat every time he touches the ball because of his superior speed. Bellamy possesses soft hands and could line up in the slot in three- and four-wide passing situations. Ideal for a punt or kick returner.
Conclusion: He will not be kept off the field. Either the special teams coach or offensive coordinator will find ways for him to get touches.
