Former UC Tight End Travis Kelce and His Breakout NFL Season

In his first full year with the Kansas City Chiefs, former third-round draft pick Travis Kelce had a great year.  At 6-5, 260 lbs., with a 4.5 40 yard dash time, Kelce is a great weapon for blocking and catching at the NFL’s new “former basketball player / tight end / receiver” position.  He was also a great late round addition to my fantasy football team.

While playing just one special team snap as a rookie before being lost for the year with a knee injury, this year Kelce finished the year strong with 67 catches for 862 yards and 5 touchdowns.

According to Pro Football Focus, Kelce led all NFL tight ends with 503 yards after the catch, and ranked as the best run-blocking tight end in the entire NFL.

On Each of Kelce’s touchdowns this year, he has showcased his exceptional white boy dancing skills.

Here are a few highlights from his days at UC.

I think it’s safe to say his former years in Clifton served him well, Bearcat Nation.
