He has been playing better each and every week. He is a very active blocker and finds someone to go block every play. Seals his side well and his being active has created good cut back lanes for Bryce.

So now I ask is he a potential starter in the future? I know he was abysmal at guard but he has been really good at RT so far, is he our potential right tackle next year letting us slide herremans into right guard?

We keep him as depth/camp competition but got to bring in 3 OL to be the dudes to pave the way for the future, i think drafting depth across the entire line and striving to upgrade every position is a must.

He has looked so oddly slow and awkward at times, even with improvement he looks at times like he didnt even belong with in 100 miles of a football field with pads on. I know he was suppose to be super raw but when the guy makes such "air headed lost" moves on the field at times , you got to wonder if his bright moments are really that bright or just a upgrade over the mass over all pathetic sucking including his own sucking...

I will have to see him for the rest of the season.
Promising though, his first game wasn't that bad, then he went into a slump, but as a whole our line has played better so we shall see.

If he can latch on as a starter, that would allow us to move Herremans back to guard, and maybe flip Mathis over to RG.

Peters-Herremans-Kelce-Mathis-Kelly

I wouldn't mind bringing in some competition, maybe a vet instead of a rookie, but we'll see. I think Jake Scott walks this summer, and Watkins will be a reserve.

Let him be a rotational OT for another year an learn some more. Dude has the size to be an amazing OT but his technique needs work. I feel be could be a decent starter come next season if needed. Until then let the boy learn!

Bring in a vet to challenge him and make him beat him for the spot.

If the Eagles want to improve the offensive line, then he would not be considered as a starter but as a quality backup.

yep - kid has some potential to be a future starter, but he's not to that point yet.

Consistency seems to be helping the line.

Quote:
Sunday's game at Tampa Bay will mark the fourth straight one that center Dallas Reynolds, guards Evan Mathis and Jake Scott, and tackles King Dunlap and Dennis Kelly have played together.


Quote:
"You always want to find positives in what you do, and I think our growth as an offensive line is one of those positives," Kelly said. "I think we are building a rhythm. We're getting to know how to play with each other and I think it's showing. Knowing the guys and having continuity has definitely helped us."

I think he's scheme diverse, he's a big dude 6'8 321. (In reference to the poll).

I wouldn't hate if they projected him to be a starter next year at RT, but it depends on what scheme, and who's brought back and who's brought in etc.

I think he could be the starter at RT in 2013 and later on.

2015 at the latest. He and another OT we draft CAN be the next Thomas/Runyan or Peters/Herremans duo.

I don't know about future starter, these next 4 games will help decide that. It'd be great if he just continued to get better and could be our RT of the future. That would be huge really, allowing Herremans/Mathis to be the OGs (good considering Herremans has always been a better OG than OT), Kelce the C and then Peters back where he belongs. Nonetheless, we definitely need to upgrade the depth and talent, and hopefully we get rid of Danny Watkins ASAP.

Kelly is a quality backup. Good find.

I don't like this thread. It asks me if Dennis Kelly is a future starter and then the actual poll is "Does Dennis Kelly start next year?". What if the answer to the first question is yes but the answer to the second question is no? Then what?

Poll is it's own question, the thread is to discuss Kelly as a player and his potential.
