Bio: 
First-year starter who led San Jose State with 12 pass breakups and made 53 tackles with one interception in 2017. Made five starts and posted 26 tackles with five PBUs as a junior. Redshirted the 2015 season after transferring from Washington.
Pos: 
Underrated cornerback with next-level ability. Effective in zone, quickly recognizes routes and nicely anticipates the action. Reads the quarterback’s eyes and makes a strong move to the throw. Tracks the pass in the air, works well with safeties to bracket receivers over the middle of the field and has a burst to the ball. Gives effort against the run.
Neg: 
Seems to lose a sense of where he is on the field occasionally. Not a physically strong cornerback.
Analysis: 
Kelly is often overlooked or even ignored in scouting circles but offers the size and ball skills to line up as a dime back at the next level.
