So far, though, Moore has not impressed Sports Illustrated's Tony Pauline:

Though its still early, Kellen Moore (QB/Boise State) does not look good. He shows no ability to put speed on his passes and his throws have consistently been behind receivers.

Arm strength has been a knock on Moore in the past, but accuracy was not an issue for him in college -- he completed 71.3% of his passes in 2010 and 74.3% of his passes in 2011. There are some adjustments to be made to preparing for the Senior Bowl, and nerves can be a factor as well given the number of scouts on hand scrutinizing every snap in practice.
