Chad Kelly was the last player to hear his name called on Saturday.
Saturday wasn’t easy for former Ole Miss quarterback Chad Kelly, who The MMQB’s Emily Kaplan beautifully profiled here.
The nephew of NFL legend Jim Kelly had to wait a very long time.
He may or may not have been asleep when it happened.
But he was eventually drafted with the last pick of the seventh round by the Denver Broncos.
Kelly’s college career came to an unceremonious close as he tore his ACL in November and ended his senior year on a low. He’s had some interesting off-field things happen. He hurt his wrist on Pro Day. It’s been a very circuitous path.
Congrats, Chad, you’re an NFL player anyway.
