Boof! Jon Gruden is a big fan of Le’Veon Bell’s blitz pickup
Jon Gruden is a big fan of Le’Veon Bell and his pass-blocking abilities.
During the final episode of “Hard Knocks” featuring the Oakland Raiders, Gruden was visiting with his running backs and trying to show them about ideal blitz pickup. He showed clips of two players: Bell and Danny Woodhead.

When Bell picks up a blitz, he does so with a thump on his opponent. Take a look at this hit from 2017:

Bell sat out all of last season because of a refusal to play under the franchise tag from the Pittsburgh Steelers. He signed with the New York Jets in the offseason and is looking forward to a return to competition. Gruden sure is a fan of the running back.
