Default Josh Allen versus Chad Kelly as prospects.

Just comparing their best statistical seasons in college where they both played a full season.

Josh Allen stats

Mountain West Conference
14 Games
Pass Attempts: 373
Completion %: 56
TDs : 28
INTs: 15


Chad Kelly stats

SEC Conference

13 games
Pass Attempts: 458
Completion %: 65.1
TDs: 31
INTs: 13


I am trying to figure out why Josh Allen is a better prospect than Kelly. Can anyone explain it? Try not bringing up Kelly's attitude. We sort of get it. Heard that for a year. Seems to have been doing all of the right things, so I am not all that concerned about that.

Is it possible Kelly is 6 foot 2 and Allen is 6 foot 5?

Please tell me there is more to it. Please tell me that the fetish Elway is attracted to is not the big factor here.

Several issues, Allen is the more physically gifted than the 2.
Allen has less injury concerns and he projects better to the NFL with no off-field issues.

Ole Miss' offense was also not conducive to translating well to the NFL level, for QB's at least.

It's not about stats, I am not sure why people keep reverting to it. College stats do not translate to NFL production.

It does when using accuracy though.

QBs throwing as inaccurate as Allen does historically suck ass outside of like 1 or 2 anamolies decades ago.

Completed 2 of 8 passes from under center, by my count.

I didn't see many plays....under center. I watched the first 2 minuted then fast forwarded to that play at 3:13. Nice play...against New Mexico.

Not sure I am not all that impressed to be drafting at NUMBER FIVE though.

I also see a similar offense to what Chad Kelly ran at Ole Miss. Pretty certain the main reason he dropped to Mr Irrelevant was his attitude. Then again, if he was really a good prospect I guess he would have been drafted earlier regardless of his attitude.

Didn't Kelly beat Alabama?

Below is a list of all-time leading QBs for accuracy. Accuracy is a very small piece of the puzzle.

Wrong perspective of what I just said. How about you start listing QBs with sub 60% throwing percentages?

Sorry,did you think you get to control the narrative? Completion percentage isnít the determining factor.

Because one is a head case and the other is not. It was well noted that Kelly had great talent. He was also an idiot. Running on the field at s high school game for his brother sealed it.

He's done a nice job not being an idiot this last year

At least he didnt get tackled by some police on video.

The kid reminds of Phillip Rivers attitude wise. I have no idea how good he will be but he's a gamer.

With this logic every air raid offense in the last quarter century has the best QBís.

Look up Matt Ryanís stats his senior year.

Another reason Kelly dropped in the draft was injury. He was injured when the Broncos drafted him. There’s every reason to believe that Kelly’s upside in the NFL is as good as, if not better than Allen’s.

Injuries didnít drop him to mr. irrelevant. If his talent was equivalent to Allen he would have got drafted in the 2nd or 3rd round at the latest.

The only evaluation of kelly has been done on tape

or the sports science segment he did before his injuries.

If Kelly was that talented some team would not give a **** about injury. D. Thomas was injured, where was he drafted?
