Kellen Moore to Sign with Detroit Lions as Undrafted Free Agent

NFL front offices are turning their attention to grabbing the best undrafted free agents possible now that the 2012 NFL Draft has come to a close.

One of the hot names is former Boise State quarterback Kellen Moore who went 50-3 as a collegiate starting quarterback. What he becomes at the pro level is a huge unknown and the reason he did not get selected. That being said, he’s worth a gamble as an undrafted free agent and the Detroit Lions are giving him that shot.

The move makes sense for the Lions. They have a vacancy at the third spot on the quarterback depth chart so Moore has a clear path to a roster spot. Shaun Hill is in place as one of the league’s best backup quarterbacks so Moore can sit and learn and hopefully take over when Shaun Hill moves on. It’s a low cost move for the Lions that could pay big dividends in the future.
