  • Welcome Joshua Kelley, RB, UCLA



    Pre-Draft Analysis


    Kelley is a shifty between-the-tackles runner with good patience. He's built well and runs with good forward lean. He doesn't play as fast as his timed speed but is fast enough to rip off chunk yards when he gets a seam. Kelley is willing to step up in pass pro and appears capable of developing into an effective receiver. -- Steve Muench

        Good player on a bad team. Was banged up last season and missed games. Another PAC 12 guy.

            Perfect AL pick.
            AL wanted Murray bad too.

              Overview
              Physical, downhill runner best-suited for gap-scheme rushing attack. On most carries, it feels like Kelley is playing a game of chicken against defenders when he ducks his head and hits the accelerator into contact. He's going to create some yardage after contact and break tackles here and there, but he tends to become a tackle magnet who is not able to make tacklers miss. He's a tough runner with short-yardage ability and maybe even third-down value. Kelly's strong showing at the Senior Bowl and the NFL Scouting Combine have bolstered his stock and put him squarely on the map as a coveted Day 3 pick.
              Strengths
              • Size and strength runner
              • Accelerates downhill and runs aggressively behind pads as TD-maker
              • Absorbs contact and falls forward to finish his runs
              • Does not back down from handling the hard work
              • Didn't get enough blocking help but created for himself with power
              • Strong lower body to dismiss upper body tackles
              • Runs with square pads
              • Quick hands to stab and secure high throws
              • Size and spirit to become decent protection option

              Weaknesses
              • Running style takes a toll on him
              • Doesn't try to make many people miss
              • Drops head and rams forward rather than surveying for more moves and yards
              • Tight hips hinder ability to transition from cut to cut
              • Forward lean works against him from a balance standpoint
              • Slow to gather and cut downhill
              • Below-average start-stop and lateral change of direction
              • Crowds blockers and lacks feel for the contours of the run lane
              • Below-average vision to reroute the run

                CBS just GUSHED on him. Said he is the pick everybody will look back in 2 years at and wonder how he went in the 4th.

                  Kelley--not blazing fast--looks like a short yardage specialist

                        Looks to be perfect balance for the RB's we have. Need that short yardage guy who looks to be a bit more than that.
