Bio: 
Three-year starter named Third Team All-ACC as a senior, making 92 tackles (4.5 for loss) with a sack and three forced fumbles in 2016. Posted 107 tackles (12 for loss) in 2015 with 3.5 sacks, earning Second team All-ACC honors. Made 87 tackles (seven for loss) and recorded six sacks as a sophomore in 2014.
Pos: 
Tough, run-defending linebacker best as a two-down player. Remains disciplined with assignments, fires up the field filling gaps in run defense and shows a good head for the ball. Quick to diagnose, flows well to the action and shows lateral speed in pursuit. Hard-hitting, drives through tackles and gives effort. Plays faster than his 40 time.
Neg: 
Struggles moving in reverse and really fits best in the box or up the field. Lacks bulk, gets caught up in the wash and is handled by blocks.
Analysis: 
Kelsey is a terrific run defender and a tackling machine with size and athletic limitations.
