Bellamy went from key reserve to starter late in his sophomore season, and was instrumental to the Dawgs' defensive success in 2017. He started 14 of 15 games played this year, making 34 tackles, 7.5 for loss, five sacks, and three pass break-ups. As a junior, he played in all 13 games, starting 11 at outside linebacker (51 tackles, nine for loss, five sacks, team-leading 17 quarterback hurries). He stood up and played with his hand in the dirt, possessing the length and strength to be a tough match-up. That sophomore season ended prematurely when Bellamy suffered a knee injury during bowl practice. He had started twice in 10 games played to that point, posting 33 tackles, 5.5 for loss, and three sacks. As a redshirt freshman, Bellamy played in 10 games as a reserve, making 17 tackles, forcing one fumble and recovering another. He was a top 25 defensive end recruit nationally coming out of Chamblee, Ga.

Overview
Bellamy has intriguing length, but it comes with a frame that is thin and lacking in functional power at the point of attack. He will need to try and pack on more muscle and has to become more proficient with his hands to optimize those long arms at the point of attack. Bellamy projects as a potential practice squad player with a shot at winning a spot on the back-end of the roster.
Strengths
  • Arms unfurl to jab edge blockers and keep himself clean
  • Usually gets arm extension when posting up on the edge
  • Does a decent job of dropping pad level to take on lead blocks
  • Has length to get to some tackles that look like he's out of
  • Narrow frame makes him a slippery target for blockers to land squarely on
  • Able to stick and separate at the top of the rush while shuffling his feet around the corner
Weaknesses
  • Segmented mover
  • Lacks foot quickness and reactive athleticism for sudden shifts to tackle
  • Play speed and tackle range is lacking
  • Lacks mass and strength in his lowers
  • Can be pushed around by tackles who are looking to widen him out in run game
  • Body control is subpar with arms and legs flailing at times
  • Plays with too much wasted motion
  • Gets hung up on blocks
  • Short strider with below average edge speed
