One of the biggest stories of the combine was that Kellen Moore reached the six-foot mark. Okay, maybe that is an exaggeration, but it was finally determined that Mr. Moore is an even 6'0''.
He didn't participate in the bench press, which is no real surprise. However, he did run a sub-5.0 40-yard dash. The official time was 4.94 seconds. That was good enough to be 13th out of 14 participants.
The rest of his timed and measured events weren't much to write home about, but again, that was to be expected.
Where Kellen did shine was in the interview time and when he threw the ball. As Moore threw the ball to prospective NFL receivers from all over the nation, the NFL commentators were gushing about his ability to anticipate.
As you watched the drills it was obvious that Moore was one of the best and most accurate arms out on that field. Those same gushing commentators complained about Kellen's arm strength, but if you watched him perform, he had no trouble throwing the long ball or getting some zip on his passes.
Overall, Kellen did what Kellen does. He impressed while at the same time he was a target of criticism. It will be interesting to see where he ends up.
Some projections have him going in the sixth or seventh round while others say free agency.
The free agency path may not be a bad route to run. That gives Moore the ability to pick the best situation for him. Still, some NFL team will probably take a chance on him in the late rounds to make sure they get the first look at him.
Prediction: Round 6
