Despite eye-popping stats at the college level, neither Houston’s Case Keenum nor Boise State’s Kellen Moore will hear his name called during the draft.
While each player has shown his tremendous ability to carry a team in college, neither one projects well to the next level.
Keenum is a system quarterback in Kevin Sumlin’s spread attack. His durability is a major question mark (he missed almost all of the 2010 season with a torn ACL), and his mechanics would need to go through a complete makeover if he wanted to even be considered a feasible backup in the NFL.
Kellen Moore, on the other hand, simply lacks many of the physical tools needed to be an NFL quarterback. He is small (6’0", 190 lbs) and he lacks arm strength and mobility, and he benefited from playing with other weapons, such as RB Doug Martin and WRs Titus Young and Austin Pettis.
I believe that Moore has a better shot at being drafted than Keenum, but don’t be shocked to see both players completely passed over.
