Watch: Former Tennessee RB John Kelly gets emotional receiving the call from the Los Angeles Rams

Big moment here for Kelly.

NFL: Combine Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

One of the best parts of the NFL Draft weekend is watching these players’ lives instantly change. It’s the realization of childhood dreams and the result of years of hard work. Today we got to hear the reaction from John Kelly, who was drafted at the top of the sixth round by the Rams.

Kelly joins his teammates Rashaan Gaulden and Kahlil McKenzie, who were also draft this weekend.

I doubt John will be pushing Todd Gurley out of a job anytime soon, but there’s a nice role for him as the Rams’ No. 2 running back. That’s already a fun offense to watch — it got a little more fun today.
