Kellen Moore Has Quiet Minicamp With Lions

The winningest collegiate quarterback in NCAA history is just another NFL rookie in 2012. The leap from college to the National Football League can be an adjustment for many players, but Boise St. Broncos QB Kellen Moore feels like it is a transition he has made before:

"I don’t really care (what people say) — it’s kind of similar to (going) from high school to college," Moore said Saturday. "It’s not some shocking new thing."

And even Detroit Lions head coach Jim Swartz recognizes that Moore is handling the new setting like a veteran, despite entering the league as an undrafted free agent:

"You can tell he’s been around a lot of football," Schwartz said Saturday. "He’s a coach’s son, (the NFL) isn’t too big for him, he’s been in a lot of big games. You see a lot of guys come through a rookie camp, you get an undrafted player, and it’s big for them.

"But (Moore) is used to being a quarterback. He steps in and he’s used to being the center of attention. That shows through the most about him."

Moore is currently fighting for a backup quarterback position heading into the 2012 NFL season.
