Kelly was the named the 2015 Remington Trophy winner as the nation’s top center. After redshirting and then seeing limited action in his first season, he spent the next three years amassing 36 starts. Alabama charged him with just eight “missed assignments” (and zero sacks) on his 1,000-plus snaps during the 2015 season.
A very safe pick for general manager Ryan Grigson, who has made his share of head-scratchers in the last few years. Andrew Luck has been getting killed with pressure up the middle, and Kelly can come right in and make a big difference. He's a road-grader at the point of attack, but he can also move to the second level and dominate when asked to seal-block linebackers and safeties. Kelly becomes the first solid center for the franchise since Jeff Saturday.
