NFL Draft 2013: Le'Veon Bell, Will Gholston, Dion Sims apply to advisory board

Andy Lyons

Three Michigan State juniors, who have been key cogs in the Spartans' machine, are considering the NFL Draft.

Michigan State juniors Le'Veon Bell, Will Gholston and Dion Sims are set to apply to the NFL advisory board to assess their potential statuses in the 2013 NFL Draft, according to the Detroit Free Press's Mark Snyder.

Bell was a workhorse running back for the Spartans during the regular season, leading the Big Ten with 29.2 carries and 137.3 yards per game. He averaged 4.71 yards per rush and picked up 11 touchdowns on the ground. Bell also had 154 receiving yards and one score through the air.

Gholston, a defensive end, totaled 12.0 tackles for loss and 3.5 sacks this year, dropping off from 16.0 and 5.0, respectively, in 2011. Sims, who plays tight end for the Spartans, caught 33 passes for 451 yards and two touchdowns this season.

Michigan State is coming off a disappointing 6-6 regular season, but the Spartans will have a chance to end the year on a high note in the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl against TCU. The Spartans and Horned Frogs meet Dec. 29 at Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe, Ariz. Kickoff is set for 10:15 p.m. ET, and the game will be televised on ESPN.
