Biography: Three-year starter awarded all-academic honors in the past.

Positives: Massive college left tackle who projects to the right side in the NFL. Solid in all facets of the game. Quickly sets up in pass protection, fights with his hands and keeps defenders in front of him. Moves relatively well on his feet. Works hard to bend his knees and block with leverage. Easily controls opponents once engaged at the point of attack. Jolts defenders with good hand punch and easily turns opponents off the line of scrimmage.

Negatives: Bends at the waist and overextends into blocks on occasion. Struggles to adjust and is better in a smaller area.

Analysis: Kelly has been productive and durable on the college level. He offers potential as a backup right tackle.

Projection: FA
