Chad Kelly wont be an early pick in the NFL draft. Most evaluators rate the former Ole Miss quarterback as around the 10th-best player at his position, hes dealing with injury, and he had his NFL Combine invitation rescinded, likely for earlier off-field transgressions.
But if youre looking for a reason to be optimistic about Kelly, you dont need to look much further than bloodlines. Hes a nephew of Hall of Fame Bills quarterback Jim Kelly, a universally loved figure who brought the Bills to four Super Bowl appearances and beat cancer in his post-playing career.
Chads father, Kevin, is Jims younger brother. Chads younger brother, Casey, is also a quarterback. (Chad once ran onto the field during one of Caseys high school games after a heavy hit on his brother, in an incident that went viral.)
Elite Kids Ty Lawson Jersey The nephews QB talent has never been in doubt. McCoughtry single-handedly willed the Dream past the first round of last years playoffs, scoring 37 points in the win over Seattle. And replacing 19.5 points, 5.7 rebounds and 1.6 steals per game will not be easy for head coach Michael Cooper. However, Atlanta has three picks (7, 19 and 31) to get it right. The obvious need would be a stretch forward who can also play some off-guard, but post depth is plentiful, and Atlanta cant go wrong with that either.
Look for more coverage from Swish Appeal in todays draft. Television coverage of the draft will come from ESPN2 (7 p.m. ET; first round) and ESPNU (second and third round).
