B.J. Bello's path to the NFL was a remarkable one.
The Lincoln Way West grad transferred from Illinois to Illinois State with just one year of eligibility left. He made the most of it, establishing himself as a legitimate NFL prospect after a monster senior season with the Redbirds.
Bello signed with the Cleveland Browns as an undrafted free agent. Since then, he's carved out a role on the 53 man roster as a contributor on special teams.
