Perry’s Draft Grade: How Jaheim Bell’s athleticism could help Patriots

The New England Patriots used their final pick in the 2024 NFL Draft to address one an under-the-radar need on offense.

The team selected Florida State tight end Jaheim Bell in the seventh round (231st overall). Seven of the Patriots’ eight picks were on the offensive side of the ball, headlined by North Carolina quarterback Drake Maye at No. 3 overall in the first round.

Bell, who’s listed at 6-foot-2 and 242 pounds, was used as both a tight end and running back in his career with the Seminoles. This kind of versatility could make him valuable in new offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt’s scheme.

Bell primarily played as a tight end in 2023 when he tallied 39 catches for 503 yards and two touchdowns. Florida State went undefeated during ACC play before losing to Georgia in the Orange Bowl.
