Kelly had a very good true freshman season, hauling in 33 passes for 471 yards and two touchdowns. As a sophomore, he developed into a go to performer hauling in 62 passes for 993 yards and ten touchdowns. Kelly had another solid year as a junior, catching 49 balls for 821 yards and nine touchdowns.
Kelly has an impressive collection of talent. He has excellent size, and has shown the ability to go over the middle and take a hit. His size also is on display in one on one situations, as he towers over most corners. Kelly combines that size with excellent athletic ability. He has the ball skills to go up and tangle with the defender in the air and come down with the football. His size and athleticism should make him a major threat in the red zone.
Physically, the only thing Kelly lacks is blazing speed, although he is not slow by any means. He just will not blow by defenders to get down the field on a consistent basis.
Kelly is only a junior, but he has as much upside as any receiver in the draft. He has the talent to develop into a go to receiver and touchdown maker. Kelly did not work out at the combine because of a quad injury but he should still grade out as a first rounder because of his upside.
