Scouting Report: John Kelly
School: Tennessee Position: Running Back Class: Junior Height: 5-9 Weight: 205 lbs Projected Draft Round: 5-7
A shifty, short, but not small running back that was underutilized during his time at Tennessee. The Vols primary offensive weapon, Kelly is small enough to get lost by defensive linemen, allowing him to use his vision to find a hole and quickly hit high gear and get to the next level. Dangerous in the open field, but doesn’t seem to have elite top end speed. A potent weapon in the passing game, along with a willingness and the skills to contribute as a blocker. Kelly appears to be in the mold of a new type of wide receiver / running back hybrid that can end the year with a near equal amount of runs and catches.
