"Chad KellyChad Kelly Quarterback
Buffalo, NY View Full Profile out of Buffalo has great feet, is a wonderful athlete and can make all the throws. He is only going to get better and better."
ESPN UPDATE 2: "On tape, Kelly is one this class' most impressive athletes and QBs, but it has been difficult to truly evaluate him as a passer, so it was very important for us to get a real feel for his downfield arm. After seeing him we feel confident he can make the necessary throws. Despite mostly playing out of the shotgun in high school, his footwork away from center was among the best in attendance. His drop speed, set up and balance were very good. He has a smooth and quick delivery. His arm is very good, but not elite on intermediate and deep range throws. He throws the ball extremely well on the run however and is such a crafty athlete with swagger and poise that you can't help but like him a lot."
As a junior, Kelly ran 86 times for 1,057 yards and 15 touchdowns. He completed 137-of-249 passes for 2,159 yards with 24 touchdowns and eight interceptions.
