Keli McGregor (born 23 January 1963 in Primghar, Iowa - died 20 April 2010 Salt Lake City, Utah) was a professional football player in the NFL and was president of the Colorado Rockies from 2001 until his death.

McGregor was a multi-sport athlete at Lakewood High School in Colorado before starring with the Colorado State Rams football team as a tight end. McGregor was a four-year starter at Colorado State. Considered to be an undersized halfback when he arrived on campus, McGregor went from freshman walk-on to second-team all-American tight end in 1984. He grew to 6ft 6ins and 250lb, and went on to become an all-Western Athletic Conference tight end from 1982-4. He set a single-season school record with 69 catches in 1983, a mark that stood for 10 years. He was voted to Colorado State's all-century team in 1992 and was named to the CSU Hall of Fame in 1996.

McGregor was selected by Denver in the fourth round of the 1985 NFL draft and played for the Denver Broncos and the Indianapolis Colts during the 1985 NFL season.
