Jim Kelly NFL Draft

Jim Kelly, former Miami Hurricane and Buffalo Bill great, has just stolen the show at the NFL Draft - and for good reason. Friday night, Kelly, who has battled squamous cell carcinoma (a form of jaw cancer) the past few years, made his way to stage to announce the 50th overall pick in place of commissioner Roger Goodell. Before he announced Buffalo's selection of Ronald Darby, he received a standing ovation and was serenaded with chants of his last name. It was incredibly heartwarming.

It's great to see Kelly back on his feet, cancer-free. Let's hope it stays that way.
