With the NFL Draft Combine in full swing, the Philadelphia Eagles shared a photo of center Jason Kelce from his time in camp in 2011.
Kelce, 36, was 23 and leaving the University of Cincinnati when he was shot in the head. The team also included before and after photos of Lane Johnson, Fletcher Cox and Brandon Graham in the same post.
“He’s come a long way since the Combine,” the Eagles captioned.
Kelce’s scores at the 2011 Draft Combine included a 4.89-second 40-yard dash, a 30.5-inch vertical jump, and a 4.14-second 40-yard dash. He also reached a speed of 16.73 miles per hour in his 40-yard dash, according to sports keda.
Despite his involvement in team social media activity during the offseason, there is still uncertainty as to whether or not he will suit up for the Eagles next season.

Jason Kelce shared that he is still “trying to figure out” if he will return to the Eagles next season.
Philadelphia is off to an impressive start to its 2023 season, winning 10 of its first 11 games. However, a late slump that saw them lose five of their last six, including a season-ending loss to the Giants, sparked an outcry from the fan base.
After the 27-10 blowout against New York, Kelce and the Eagles ended their season with a wild card loss to the Buccaneers. Immediately after the 32-9 loss, the center allegedly told his teammates that he was retiring.
Days later, he denied the rumors on his ‘New Heights’ podcast with his brother Travis, claiming that he is still trying to make a decision. In February, Jason spoke more about the situation in ‘The great podcast‘ with Shaquille O’Neal and Adam Lefkoe.
“I’m still thinking about it. I think if I still want to play, I will. I think right now we’re not far enough from the last game,” he shared.
Over the course of his career, Kelce was selected seven Pro Bowls and six first-team All-Pros. He also helped the Eagles win Super Bowl LII in 2017.
