Player Notes Pros

 

  • Super tough runner when he's able to square his pads to the line of scrimmage

  • Bringing notable power, contact balance and aggressiveness as a ball carrier

  • Kelley will put defenders on their heels trying to tackle him heads up in the hole

  • Shows the necessary burst & agility in run lanes to break off a chunk gains

  • There's a second gear when he pops out of the hole and he can gouge you as a result

  • His cut back vision is effective, really useful in his efforts at the mesh point

  • Great making reads at the point of attack & finding a cut opportunity early in the run

  • Showed awareness to fall in line behind blockers on buck sweep & outside concepts

  • Good elusiveness, has a vicious stiff arm, knack for churning out extra yards

  • Was used effectively in the pass game, has soft hands & runs solid routes

  • Less than 500 career touches during his time at UCLA leaves lots of tread on the tires 

 

Player Notes Cons

 

  • Not a true burner, does not possess elite breakaway speed in the open field

  • Easily derailed when forced off script or when his initial hole on power concepts fail

  • Could use to remain a bit more patient & trust his blocks in short yardage situations

  • Complimentary skills are lacking, too passive in protection & di not assert himself
