Says The Ringer:
26. Jason Kelce.Year: 2011. Pick: Round 6, no. 191 overall. Pick AV: 1.4. Games started with drafting team: 126. AV with drafting team: 79. All-Pro selections: 3
Kelce’s NFL career is nothing short of miraculous. At the 2011 combine, Kelce weighed 280 pounds. That ranks in the first percentile for all interior offensive linemen since 2000. Only two IOL were lighter over that span, and one of them was in the Air Force—which doesn’t count.
Over time, Kelce learned to use that frame to his advantage. His movement skills and savvy as a run blocker form the backbone of the Eagles’ rushing offense.
Kelce has been the league’s best center for the past few seasons, and the guy was drafted one spot ahead of a punter. Positional value is the only factor preventing Kelce from being higher on this list. If he were a wide receiver—or even a tackle—he’d shoot up significantly.
