The Indianapolis Colts aren't wasting time in making sure their first-round draft pick is under contract in time for rookie minicamp.
The ex-Alabama center is expected to help solidify the middle of the Colts' line and help cut down on the high rate of hits Luck has taken since entering the NFL. Kelly should play a key role in helping Luck once again flash the credentials that made him one of the NFL's most lethal QBs before last season's injury-shortened campaign.
Kelly started 36 of the 43 games he appeared with for the Crimson tide and was part of Alabama's national title-winning teams in 2011, '12 and '15. As a senior, he won the Rimington Trophy as the nation's top center.
