Kellen Moore

This NFL Draft ended on Saturday and former Boise State quarterback Kellen Moore did not hear his name called.  There were 253 players and 11 quarterbacks taken over the three day event, but Moore was passed up in favor of B.J. Coleman of Chattanooga an Chandler Harnish of Northern Illinois in the seventh round.

Moments after the drafted ended though, Moore and Detriot Lions came to terms on a free agent contract.  In the Motor City, Moore will reunite with former Boise State wide receiver Titus Young, who was drafted in the second round by the Lions in the 2011 NFL Draft.

When it came to winning, nobody did it better than quarterback Kellen Moore in the history of college football.  With a record of 50-3, he led the Broncos to four bowl games in four years, posting wins over TCU (Fiesta Bowl), Utah (MAACO Bowl Las Vegas) and Arizona State (MAACO Bowl Las Vegas).
The 2010 Heisman Trophy finalist was named first-team all-conference as a sophomore, junior and senior, and compiled a 6-0 mark all-time against schools from an AQ conference.
