Draft Reports: Curry and Bellamy

Independent NFL scout Justin Van Fulpen continues his draft reports on Michigan seniors. Today, Julius Curry and Ronald Bellamy.

S Julius Curry, 6-0 200 – Red shirted in 1998, Curry has played ever since then until in 2001 where he missed seven games due to a shoulder injury.

POSITIVES: Curry is a tough and athletic safety who works hard and studies film well. He has good feet and hips that allow him to change directions. He has good hands and decent speed.

NEGATIVES: Curry misses too many tackles and has missed too many games over his career due to injuries. He will need a lot of work to become a decent NFL safety.

BOTTOM LINE: This season Curry only played in 9 games, had 21 tackles, 1 sack, and 2 interceptions. He will not get drafted in April but with his athletic ability will have a shot to get into a NFL camp as a free agent.


WR Ronald Bellamy, 6-0 199 – Bellamy was a high school All-American who was third on the team this year with 46 catches for 530 yards and 5 touchdowns. When he was a freshman he played some cornerback, but ever since then he has been a wide receiver.

POSITIVES: Bellamy has good hands and runs very good routes. He knows how to come in and out of breaks. He has good strength and is a good down field blocker. He also has returned punts well.

NEGATIVES: Bellamy lacks top-notch speed and is not a great playmaker. He only has average size and is not great after the catch.

BOTTOM LINE: Bellamy was a good number two WR in college and will be a number 4 or 5 in the NFL. He will be an un-drafted rookie free agent and will have a good chance to make an NFL roster as a 4th or 5th WR.
