Eagles Draft Picks 2012: Dennis Kelly, OT, Fifth Round

With the 18th pick in the fifth round of the 2012 NFL Draft, the Philadelphia Eagles have selected offensive tackle, Dennis Kelly, from the Purdue Boilermakers.

The National Football Post ranked Kelly as their 25th best offensive tackle. Here's what they had to say about him.

Works hard in the run game, but doesn't fire off the ball low enough to create leverage for himself. Pumps his legs through contact, but displays poor hand placement and again is more of a grabber than striker. Hands consistently go outside the body of his opponent however; he is tough to disengage from through and works hard to stay on blocks. But, looks to be holding a lot of the time. Is a decent athlete getting out to the second level and reaching a target in space.
