Kelly had an up-and-down collegiate career to say the least, but ended up throwing for 6,800 yards and 50 touchdowns over two seasons in Oxford.
Still, given his intriguing set of tools, it's easy to see why a team was willing to take a chance on him.
"So I've been trying to say that if you take out the medical and the character, he's a first- or second-round quarterback all day long," NFL Draft analyst Mike Mayock said after Denver's selection of Kelly. "If you take his two tapes against Alabama, and put them up against Deshaun Watson's, they're every bit as good."
For a guy who wanted to be drafted for his swag, there's no better way to kick off his NFL career with a parade, even if it's for last overall selection notoriety.
