Senior Bowl Wrap, Kellen Moore Shouldn’t be Drafted
Byron Lambert, Rosterwatch.com
Unless your favorite NFL team is in the business of drafting 3rd string QB’s, they won’t or shouldn’t be drafting Kellen Moore. We watched him live the whole week of Senior Bowl practice and he kept disappointing. Moore is WAY undersized, has a total pee-pee arm, his footwork is questionable, and his biggest asset, his accuracy, was not apparent. He did show a couple of nice flashes during the actual game, looking sharp on a few short timing throws where his accuracy and anticipation made up for his lack of arm strength.
The game did not change my impression of Moore though. He still threw some weak passes and was terribly inaccurate down the field. Needless to say, if I were a GM, I would not be drafting Kellen Moore this April.
An interesting Senior Bowl tidbit is that if Moore doesn’t make the NFL he doesn’t have much of a shot at the CFL either. CFL scouts said his arm is way too weak for their large fields and windy weather conditions.
** Side Note: The only person who might have been worse than Moore was Nick Foles. He was just terrible. I do think he will be drafted though, based purely on his prototypical size. Too bad his arm doesn’t match. Also, we still are not on the Brandon Weeden bandwagon. I maintain, Kirk Cousins was the best QB prospect in Mobile this week.
