Former Ole Miss star QB reportedly will throw at Rebels' Pro Day
Normally, Pro Days are used for the outgoing class of players at a particular school to show off their skills for NFL coaches and scouts.
But, sometimes, former players for a school come back to try to get a new job in the NFL, too.
That will be the case for Ole Miss on Thursday. Per 247Sports, QB Chad Kelly and a pair of ex-Ole Miss receivers will be participating in the Pro Day alongside the outgoing class of Rebels:
The Spirit has learned that former Rebel quarterback Chad Kelly will be among the Ole Miss Pro Day participants expected to be inside the Manning Center on Thursday. We are told that Kelly will be there to throw in front of NFL scouts. It is unclear which other, if any, pro day drills Kelly plans to participate in.
Catching passes for Kelly will be former Ole Miss wide receivers Damarkus Lodge and Damore’ea Stringfellow. All three former Rebels were recently released from NFL organizations.
Kelly was most recently with the Indianapolis Colts, but he was released last September. Will any of these 3 guys impress NFL teams on Thursday? We’ll find out soon enough!
