2012 Senior Bowl: Kellen Moore Continues To Underwhelm In Day Two Of Practice

The efforts of graduating quarterbacks such as Boise State's Kellen Moore and Wisconsin's Russell Wilson to prove to NFL teams that they're capable of handing what the league can throw at them continued on Wednesday at the 2012 Senior Bowl.

Unfortunately, it's hard for scouts to get past things as obvious as size, and both players come up well short of expectations in that area. Moore stands at just 5-foot-11 and weighs 191 pounds, while Wilson came in at just 5-foot-10, 203 pounds. Considering that, those two have had a whole lot to gain with the attention they've received at this year's Senior Bowl, but the results have continued to be underwhelming.

SB Nation's Alfie Crow is down in Mobile taking in the whole scene, and he wasn't impressed by Moore once again during Day 2:

Boise State's Kellen Moore continued to struggled getting the football to spots, especially on out routes. On most passes deeper than about 15 yards, Moore either threw the football at the receivers knees or over their heads. While his lack of arm strength isn't a shock to most people, it's clearly going to limit what he's able to do in the pro game.

Wilson underwhelmed, as well.

Russell Wilson struggled with his accuracy again, especially on some out routes. Wilson did throw a beautiful deep ball in one-on-one drills, but wide receiver T.J. Graham just couldn't haul the ball in.

These are guys that really only receive attention as NFL prospects because of the stunning success that they had during their respective college careers. If they can't prove to NFL scouts that they're capable of making the throws required of quarterbacks in that league, they likely won't last very long.
