2012 NFL Combine: Kellen Moore Measures In At 6 Feet Tall

Boise St. Broncos quarterback Kellen Moore is the all-time wins leader in NCAA history, so he certainly casts a long shadow for anyone future college quarterback looking to challenge his record of 50 victories. However, he's going to have an uphill battle when he transitions to the NFL since evaluators will certainly (but possibly incorrectly) be concerned with his height:

He wouldn't be the first 6-foot-tall quarterback in the NFL. We need only look at the success that Drew Brees has had in this league. While we can point to Brees as an example of a short quarterback succeeding in the NFL, let's not start calling Moore the next Brees, who was the first pick of the second round in the 2011 NFL Draft.

Moore is looking at being a late-round draft pick during Rounds 4-7 on Day 3 of the NFL Draft.
