Detroit Lions quarterback Kellen Moore won 50 games and completed 74 percent of his passes during his four-year career at Boise State, but that apparently wasn't enough to earn an official selection in the 2012 NFL Draft. In a conversation with Larry Lage of the Detroit Free Press, Moore called the NFL Draft a "[v]ery frustrating process, but a great outcome in the end," as the Detroit Lions snatched him up in free agency to provide depth behind Matthew Stafford and Shaun Hill.
Scouts found issues with Moore's lack of size and arm strength, but he is glad to get the opportunity to prove them wrong in the NFL, saying: "There's a lot of ways to evaluate a quarterback. Some evaluate it and put a lot of emphasis on that. That's fine. Smile, and move on." Now Moore gets to reunite with former Boise State wide receiver Titus Young, who was drafted by the Lions in 2011.
