Draft Scout Kellen Moore News
09/05/12 - QB Kellen Moore was standing on the Boise State sidelines at Michigan State's Spartan Stadium Friday night when he got the news. It came in the form of a text message from offensive coordinator Scott Linehan. "We're good to go," is all it said. Moore, the undrafted rookie from Boise State, had beaten the odds and won a spot on the 53-man roster. "This is my first time going through this NFL thing, so it'll be a fun experience for this week just to get the routine down and understand how everything works," Moore said. "Certainly, it's great just to have Matt (Stafford) and Shaun (Hill), learn from those guys, kind of get through a routine, and we'll see where it takes us." If last year is any indication, Moore might not be wearing his uniform much. Last year's No. 3 quarterback Drew Stanton didn't dress the entire season.
04/29/12 - According to reports, one of the first undrafted rookies the Lions signed was Boise State quarterback Kellen Moore. "Quarterbacks are one of the things we will be looking for," coach Jim Schwartz said. The Lions were left without a No. 3 quarterback when Drew Stanton signed with the Jets and was traded to Indianapolis. Moore, who throws left-handed, threw for more than 3,800 yards and 43 touchdowns last season. The Lions also signed undrafted free agent Rodney Austin, a 6-4, 311-pound offensive guard from Elon. - The Sports Xchange
04/19/12 - Moore is accustomed to hearing raves about others while he is virtually ignored. He received scholarship offers from three colleges — Boise State, Eastern Washington and Idaho — following a career in which he went 36-3 and set state marks with 787 completions and 173 scores when he played for his father at Prosser High School in Washington state. "At the end of the day, you smile and remember some of the names and some of the people who decided to go in a different direction," he said. "If you get the opportunity to play them, it's a good feeling to come out on top." His father asserts that many scouts are intent on making the safe recommendation. "Let's face it, the No. 1 job of a scout is to keep your job so you can feed your wife and kids," he said. "If you pick a 6-5 quarterback and you make a mistake, you probably won't get fired. If you take a chance on a 6-foot quarterback, you're taking much more of a risk." With 6-0 New Orleans Saints star Drew Brees standing out as an undersized exception, Petersen thinks general managers might be unwilling to depart from the prototype. "Pro scouts come in here and they love him as much as anyone," he said. "They say, 'He's an unbelievable player, but we're not sure the powers that be will go for him because he's 6 feet." - Jim Corbett and Tom Pedulla, USA TODAY
03/23/12 - While the Pro Days taking place at Stanford and LSU dominated the headlines Thursday, quarterback Kellen Moore, running back Doug Martin and outside linebacker Shea McClellin quietly wowed scouts at Boise State's Pro Day, as well.
Moore reportedly completed 48 of 50 passes in an impressive workout that demonstrated better than expected arm strength -- one of the biggest knocks teams have about the NCAA's all-time winningest quarterback.
Moore, who measured in at (6'0, 198) is never going to dazzle anyone with his ability to drive the football but he's showed enough zip, according to a scout on the scene, to find a niche.
"(Moore) and the running back (Martin) looked terrific. (Moore's) arm strength is less of a concern than I thought," the source said.

03/22/12 - Boise State Pro Day: Boise State quarterback Kellen Moore, wide receiver Tyler Shoemaker and defensive tackle Billy Winn helped themselves with strong performances Thursday at the school’s pro day workout in front of NFL scouts and coaches. Moore completed 52-of-53 throws in the passing drills. His one miss was on the fourth throw of the workout, a deep ball to Shoemaker that was overthrown by about an inch. He showed good zip and excellent timing, and hit several 50-yard bombs. “A lot of scouts felt Kellen’s individual workout was better than any quarterback workout out West this year,” one NFL scout said. That doesn’t include Stanford’s Andrew Luck, who also worked out Thursday, but does include Arizona’s Nick Foles and San Diego State’s Ryan Lindley, who are higher rated by many analysts. “A couple scouts there who are very much anti-Kellen Moore guys, who don’t see any way his body type can last in the NFL, even those guys said, ‘Wow, that was a good workout,’ ” the scout said. Moore measured at 6-foot and 1/8 inch. He was 5-11 7/8 at the Senior Bowl and 6-0 at the NFL Scouting Combine, which is a strange trend. - Chadd Cripe, The Idaho Statesman
