Let's face it, Kelly was supposed to be a complimentary back last year but Brown took him out in training camp. Once Brown went down, Kelly was nowhere near ready, couldn't pass protect, and they went and got CJ. Henderson will plug in to the rotation game one imo. Kelly had that opportunity last year. Now he has competition in camp and probably won't make the team. If Gurley does go down, Rams don't want to lose TOO much from their production at RB. Henderson gives them way better insurance than Kelly. That's what this pick is about, not about a lingering Gurley injury.

Kelly was an undrafted back. Seems like lot of expectations for him. Lol.

Kelly was a sixth round pick in 2018. He showed flashes in the preseason. I think he could still be a rotational back but needs to bulk up a little and improve his pass protection.

Kelly isnt a homerun hitter. The only homerun hitting back was TG. Henderson provides the rams a 2nd home run hitter at rb that they can use when TG needs a break.

I also expect for both TG and Henderson on the field together with, Henderson being used similar to how the rams used Tavon Austin, when he was here.

It's all about Gurley. He faded the last two playoff seasons.

It's not a knock on anybody... The Rams filled a missing element in the offense that they didnt have in Henderson. That would be a explosive off of the bench. A guy a defense cant account for because of the other weapons on the field.They gimmicked Tavon in that without success. As McVay said, they brought in Dunbar for that role. He couldnt over come injury.

I think JK beats out Justin Davis and RB room go's four deep.

Probably more of a knock to Davis than Kelly but, I see it as a complimentary piece to Gurley and Brown
