Jason Kelce
Round 6, Pick 191
Position: C
Class:  5Sr
School: Cincinnati
Conference: Big East
HT: 6-2.5
WT: 285

Biography: Three-year starter manning the center spot last season after holding down the left guard spot the prior two years. All-Conference selection after his senior and junior campaigns.

Positives: "Strong run blocker moving up draft boards. Blocks with good lean, fights hard throughout the action, and anchors in pass protection. Stays square, gets his hands into defenders, and strong at the point of attack. Blocks with a nasty attitude and moves defenders off the line of scrimmage, opening up the running lanes. Flashes the ability to get out to the second level and hit a moving target."

Negatives: "Overextends and lunges into blocks, which adversely affects his balance. Lacks great footwork in space."

Analysis: Kelce has been durable and productive on the college level and added the dimension of effectively playing another position last season. He lacks true NFL size yet is a solid developmental prospect who can make a depth chart at several offensive line positions.

Projection: 4-5
