With the NFL Draft coming soon, I have released my breakdown of Ole Miss quarterback Chad Kelly.

My first scouting report was of Notre Dame quarterback DeShone Kizer.  You can read it here. Hope you enjoy.

Next up is Ole Miss quarterback Chad Kelly who despite his talent could go undrafted.

Kelly had an up and down career at Ole Miss, but flashed a lot of potential in games against the vaunted Alabama Crimson Tide. Kelly was 2-1 in three seasons against Nick Saban’s juggernaut.

Kelly has a bevy of off-field issues dating back to his days with Clemson. Along with character issues, Kelly has also gone through a handful of injuries with a torn ACL last season that will also knock him down some draft boards.

Kelly threw for 6,858 yards, 50 touchdowns and 21 interceptions during his college career. He also rushed for over 900 yards during his time with Clemson and Ole Miss, which might surprise some people.

I appreciate and welcome all feedback; as many prospects have different grades from different people. Feel free to tweet me your thoughts on the prospects and my notes. You can find me on twitter @manfreonair
