Chad Kelly could get a chance to show off his skills before the NFL draft after all.
According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, Kelly has been cleared for a 35-45 play script at the Ole Miss pro day, meaning he will be allowed to show off for scouts for that number of plays.
Kelly tore his ACL in November and missed the final three games of the regular season. Ole Miss’ pro day is scheduled for April 3.

Kelly wasn’t invited to the NFL combine due to some of his past incidents so the Ole Miss pro day represents a final opportunity to meet with teams and scouts before the rapidly approaching NFL draft. The first round begins on April 27 and the draft concludes on April 29.
Kelly, due to off-field concerns, is likely expected to be taken in the later rounds of the NFL draft.
