2012 season: 241-359, 67.1%, 3,039 yds., 29 TDs, 9 INT; 516 rush. yds.
Taylor Kelly completed 67.1 percent of his passes, an Arizona State single season record, in his first year as Sun Devils starter in 2012. His pass efficiency of 159.9 was second in the conference. He can make any throw asked of him due to his above-average arm and pinpoint accuracy. Kelly is quick and elusive out of the pocket and may be more accurate while throwing on the run than in the pocket, which is one of the best attributes a quarterback can have.
Kelly does a lot of things right and not much wrong. He did throw nine picks but most of them can be credited to his overconfidence. He’s similar to Brett Favre in that he believes he can make every throw and although he has the arm to do so, no quarterback will ever go a full season without throwing an interception.
If he drops to the 3rd round, one NFL team will get a special quarterback who could be around for years to come.
