NFL Career Achievements

The Philadelphia Eagles selected Kelce as the 191st overall pick in the sixth round of the 2011 NFL Draft, he, however, had to wait until the 2011 NFL lockout to be lifted before the deal was made official. His rookie season started and ended on a good note. As a rookie, Jason Kelce started all of the games and was the first rookie player in the history of the franchise to start all of the season’s games.

During his second season with the team, he was named the starting center for the second time in a row. The season, however, didn’t end well as he suffered a partially torn MCL and ACL which kept him on the bench for the rest of the season. But he made up for the loss the following season, starting all of the team’s sixteen games, helping them not just to reach the playoffs, but also to record a team-record of 442 points but with a 6,676 yards records. That performance earned him the title as the best center in the NFL that year and Pro Football Focus’ (PFF) honoured him for that. He also bagged the Ed Block Courage Award.
