Former Troy Trojan Leodis McKelvin burst onto the NFL scene this past season as a rookie. The first round draft pick made his presence felt in his first year. McKelvin was on the campus of Troy-Dothan Tuesday for an alumni meeting.
McKelvin started six games last season at defensive back. He also spent extended time on special teams.
McKelvin's season highlights included a long interception return for a touchdown against the Chiefs and a 98-yard kick return for a score against the Browns.
Leodis said he really enjoyed his first season. “When you go into the locker rooms or go into these big stadiums, playing against the guys you see on t.v., it feels great, McKelvin said. “It’s given me a chance to get myself into the game and, being able to adapt to the NFL speed and being able to learn the learn the defense.”
