After quarterback Chad Kelly suffered an unfortunate injury, it’s not clear where the Ole Miss could go in this year’s NFL Draft. There were already questions about Kelly’s inconsistent play on the field and questionable decisions off the gridiron and his recent setback only complicated things further.
Now, Jason Cole of Bleacher Report (video link) hears that execs still like him as a Day 3 prospect. Kelly, despite all of the question marks, could go as high as the fifth round, Cole hears. NFL officials say that they are high on Kelly in some respects because of his fearless approach to the game and his performance against high-level opposition, like Alabama.
As Kelly deals with a torn ACL and lateral meniscus, it’s unlikely that he will be able to workout for teams prior to the spring draft.
