Spring Game Watch: Aaron Kelly

by - Correspondent -

Through roughly the first 11 practices of spring, Aaron Kelly had done nothing to stand out. Somewhere Kelly found the sense of urgency that eludes a lot of players. Kelly has really put together a good string of practices as of late.

On Wednesday, Kelly once again showed the ability to elude defenders in the open field after the catch. Kelly surprised everyone on Saturday when he leveled defensive tackle Cory Groover on a block. Kelly is now putting himself in position to push for a starting job.

Though Kelly started the spring slow, fans should be excited to see the 6-4 175 receiver go to work on Saturday. If Kelly closes out with a big spring game, this will be really good sign heading into the off-season. With pressure from Kelly and La'Donte Harris, veterans Kelvin Grant, Curtis Baham, and Chansi Stuckey will only become better.
