Kansas City Chiefs Tight End Travis Kelce has been a staple in Andy Reid’s offense for the past four years. Kelce has four straight seasons of at least 800 yards and he’s been very impressive in so many different phases of the game. The first thing that stands out when you watch the Cleveland native play is Kelce’s ability to run routes much smoother than most tight ends can. This is a 6’6 260 pound guy that can run like the wind and that creates a match problem for most defenders. Defensive backs are too small and Kelce can box them out and make an easy grab. On the other hand Linebackers are too slow to stay on Kelce’s hip and then when you add in the 3x Pro Bowlers ability to dip in and out of his breaks quickly, it’s obvious why nobody can cover number 87. It’s not just Travis Kelce’s catching skills that stand out on tape either. Kelce can hook or drive block defenders and kick them out of the play. If Kelce gets up on a second level defender it’s usually a win for the Chiefs too. All of that makes the former University of Cincinnati star an elite offensive weapon in Reid’s passing attack. When you picture Sammy Watkins and Tyreek Hill also being a part of that group it’s clear things will be exciting at Arrowhead this fall. Travis Kelce is also instrumental when it comes to Kansas City’s morale when they head into battle. We all know Kelce is a lightning rod for momentum on the gridiron. He brings a unique energy to the game and plays with a ton a heart. The other players in the Chiefs locker room look at that and it inspires them to play better themselves. So in terms of everything Travis Kelce brings to this ball club we’re talking about a massive amount of leadership and production. Things that aren’t easily replaced.
