Kelly started his career playing for Adelaide's reserves team in the SANFL. At the start of 2014 he was a standout in the inexperienced backline, successfully tagging several experienced SANFL forwards.This form continued through the rest of the season as he performed well, nullifying some of the competition's best forwards while averaging 16 possessions and leading the club in marks. He was second in the reserves club's best and fairest.
In early 2015, Kelly was elevated to the club's senior list, replacing the injured Brent Reilly.He made his debut against Melbourne in round 3 of the season, laying 10 tackles in the match.After playing ten games for the club, he was given a two-year contract, keeping him at the club until the end of the 2017 season.At the end of the season he was officially promoted from the club's rookie list to their senior list.
In training for the 2017 season he again proved his endurance ability, finishing first in a 2 km time trial out of Adelaide's squad.Kelly had a chance to impress the Crows in the 2017 JLT Community Series, laying six tackles in the first match against Richmond.He again pushed for senior selection in the Crows’ final JLT Series match against Brisbane Lions, where he had 16 possessions and took seven marks.His pre-season form was enough to give him his first AFL match in 638 days in the Crows’ season opener.
Kelly missed the round five match against Gold Coast due to being poked in the eye in the previous game against Essendon, but his form was good enough to keep his spot in the senior side for every other match of the season.Having established himself as one of the club's most reliable defenders, conceding less than one game per goal, he was given another two-year contract extension. He played in Adelaide's losing Grand Final effort against Richmond, where he had 20 possessions and 6 marks.
During the second quarter of round 1 of 2021 against Geelong, Kelly was hit by Patrick Dangerfield in the head. He suffered concussion and was taken off by stretcher. He also broke his nose. Patrick Dangerfield was suspended for 3 weeks.
