"Kelly's a violent, quick runner with special balance and an experienced receiver who's primary weakness is pure speed."
Quick lateral movement and great balance. Good vision and attacks defenses. Strong, compact build and breaks tackles. First man rarely brings him down. Quick feet and finds daylight. Elusive in the open field. Good receiver and gets open consistently as a route runner. Flashes an angry stiff arm.
Kelly has arguably the best balance of any RB in this class.
Good burst but lacks speed. Inconsistent pass blocker. Character concerns erupted just after the season. Often an upright runner but compensates with a compact build and can drop his hips.
Kelly looks like a franchise RB. He's a violent, quick runner with special balance and an experienced receiver. He may not test among the fastest RBs but his burst and quick feet create chunk plays. The only blip on Kelly's projection is in the off field. Character concerns might dictate his stock, but he’s got the talent of a 1st round RB.
