Ourlads' Profile:

2017 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about CHAD KELLY: Mississippi, 6020 224 4.85. Two-year starter from Buffalo, NY. Double transfer from Clemson and East Mississippi Community College. Injured his ACL and lateral meniscus in Georgia Southern game and missed the last four games of the season. He is the nephew of Hall of Fame quarterback, Jim Kelly. Good arm strength to throw all the deep routes. Good mobility to avoid an oncoming rush. Has tremendous amount of confidence in himself. Can throw a pea through a keyhole at times. But more times than not, his receivers are running wide open down the field and he delivers without the pass catchers slowing down. Under a new NFL policy, players are barred from the Combine if they have a history of violent criminal behavior. Kelly was involved in a bar fight where he threatened to “go get my AK-47 and spray the place.” Another in a list of bad decisions on and off the field. Kelly’s career has been defined by inconsistency. Forces the ball into double coverage and has a tendency to stare down his receivers. His footwork in the pocket is inconsistent which causes him to throw the ball off target. Boom or bust. 2016 stats: 205/328, 2758 yds, 62.5%, 19 TD, 8 INT, 332 yds rushing, 5 TD, 147.4 QB rating. Not invited to Combine. Sixth/seventh round. (A-NA, H-NA, SS-NA, VJ-NA).
