Bridgeton, NJ Alum Markquese Bell Named Draft Prospects to Watch

Famous former Bridgeton Bulldogs player Markquese Bell has made a name for himself and will be part of the 2022 NFL Draft.

Bell left Bridgeton in 2017 for College Park, Maryland but left the school without ever appearing in a game for Terps. He made his way to Coffeyville Community College in Kansas for the 2018 season, before landing at Florida A&M University.

Now, he’s a name to watch in the upcoming NFL Draft after a season that saw him make 79 tackles, two sacks, one interception and four forced fumbles. His standout moment came during a game against South Florida, where he had a total of 15 tackles, once covered in a sack, once dealt in a loss and once forced to fumble.

The 6’3, 215-pound safety was recently listed as one of five college football prospects to watch at ESPN.com by draft analyst Jordan Reid:

Bell is a versatile defender who can play at low safety and high safety in the guard. His physical presence against the run has made him one of the best minor-level defensive prospects of this draft cycle.

Bridgeton alum recently accepted an invite to play in the East West Temple Game in January and is expected to be a fourth or fifth round pick in April’s draft.

He has been a driving force since joining the Rattlers football program in 2019, he has made 63 tackles including 4 losses, 9 missed passes and 5 more interceptions in his first season at FAMU.

The Rattlers are without a season in 2020 due to COVID-19.
