Overview

Kelce has the mobility and mentality to make it as a reserve center in the NFL. However, does not have the size or power to project as a starter. In pass protection, does a good job getting set, can slide and feet and move laterally but struggles with the pull rush and pass rushers with a wide array of moves. Has the feet and quickness to project well in a zone blocking scheme but still needs to become more consistent locating his man on the second level. Is never going to be a road-grading run blocker who blows defenders off the ball. Late-rounder or rookie free agent.


Strengths

Kelce has great mobility for an interior offensive lineman. Can mirror and stick with quick pass-rushes. Exhibits good instincts in pass protection. Can pick up the blitz and knows when the help. Has the potential to be a good zone blocker and productive on the second level or out in space. Good motor.

Weaknesses

Does not possess adequate bulk or much growth potential. Is susceptible to the bull rush in pass pro. Doesn't get much movement when run blocking and struggles to sustain. Must watch his pad level. Can struggle to find his target at the second level.

Grade

2.4
