Draft Scout Chad Kelly News
11/06/17 - QB Chad Kelly will remain on the non-football injury list for the rest of the season.
Kelly practiced last week, but the Broncos chose to keep their seventh-round pick off the 53-man roster as he completes his recovery from a torn ACL and a wrist injury suffered before the draft.
07/27/17 - QB Chad Kelly began training camp on the non-football injury list because of a wrist injury suffered while he was getting ready for a pre-draft throwing session. Kelly is not expected to begin throwing until sometime in August.
05/10/17 - QB Chad Kelly, who was dubbed "Mr. Irrelevant" as the 253rd and final pick of the 2017 NFL Draft, agreed to terms on a four-year rookie deal Wednesday. The former Ole Miss quarterback is due about $2.5 million over four years and has an estimated cap hit of $481,067 this year, the Denver Post reported Wednesday.
01/25/17 - It's an important week for Chad Kelly, even if a knee injury is keeping him from playing in the Senior Bowl. The Mississippi quarterback is observing South practices and sitting in meetings with the other quarterbacks and coach Hue Jackson of the Cleveland Browns leading up to Saturday's game since he's recovering from November surgery on his right knee . Probably more important, Kelly is getting a chance to answer questions from NFL teams about his off-the-field problems. "They're thinking that it's going to be taking a chance on me, for sure," he said. "I've made stupid mistakes in the past. I can't deny that. But with that being said, I've learned from it. I'm not the same person I was a long time ago."
Kelly was kicked off the Clemson team in 2014 after arguing with coaches during the spring game. He also was arrested after a bar fight in 2014, eventually pleading guilty to a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct. Last October, he was involved in a brawl at his brother's high school football game in New York. He ran onto the field after his brother, Casey Kelly, apparently took a late hit and video shows several coaches restraining him on the field. Kelly knows being upfront about his missteps will be important in meetings with NFL teams leading up to the April draft, starting this week. "That's the biggest thing. You've got to make sure you're saying the right stuff to every team because they all speak to each other," Kelly said. "You've got to be honest, of course, but you've got to admit to what you did and you've got to try to convince them that you've learned from those mistakes and that you're not going to make them again. - AP Sports
