Jim Kelly knows a thing or two or a million about quarterbacks. The 11-year vet was named to five Pro Bowls, one First Team All-Pro, and was elected to the Hall of Fame in 2002 following his career with the Buffalo Bills.
So when he talks, people listen.
The person he’s touting – his nephew, Chad Kelly. Jim Kelly took to Instagram with a pointed message to NFL executives:
Chad Kelly began his career at Clemson, but transferred to Ole Miss. He started his two years there, but had his 2016 season cut short because of a torn ACL. All told, he threw for 50 TDs against 21 INTs and completed 64% of his passes.
Charlie Cambell at WalterFootball has Kelly ranked as the ninth-based quarterback prospect in this draft, and projects him to be drafted in round six or seven, or possibly sign as a free agent.
Clearly, uncle Jim thinks he deserves more.
