Sleeper Pick in the Draft
This year’s NFL draft has a lot of great college standouts and it is always the ones that many teams pass on the tend to be the sleepers, and future standouts. Like former sixth round pick Drew Brees, he showed that he was a sleeper and i am pretty sure that many NFL teams wish they would not have passed up on drafting him. So I sit back and think, which players have that same potential to be the underdog and have an amazing NFL career.
Hidden Gems Can be Found in the Draft
This year’s draft has been surrounded by the hype of Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III, but what about the other players who had great years and are suddenly not been talked about. Boise State’s Kellen Moore is the winningest player in FBS history with a record of 50-3. Scouts and analyst around are saying that Moore is too small, doesn’t have the arm strength, and did not play major competition in college because of the conference that he played in.
Remember the NFL MVP and Superbowl champion Drew Brees, yeah he was drafted in the sixth round. This is the same round Moore is predicted to go, Moore is one of the most accurate quarterbacks in the draft. He may not have the arm strength to throw 50 yard bombs on every play or drive, but how many professional quarterbacks can. Kellen is know for his anticipation throws and the accuracy behind them, former NFL coach John Gruden stated that he believed that Moore will be a successful NFL quarterback because of his background and knowledge of the game.
Kellen Moore is the Sleeper Pick in the Draft
How can you discredit a player who has the most wins in college football history, because if the conference his team played in really mattered then why are more mid-major conference teams without records like Boise State. No matter what a player does in the combine or their pro-day, you can not take away what you see from them on their game day film. Anyone can be an athlete, but everyone can’t play the game of football.
Kellen Moore is one of those players, after watching his college games, he posses things that I didn’t see from Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III. Not taking anything away from these gentleman, but NFL scouts have been wrong for years about quarterbacks that the claim to be future superstars. No need to name names, but look at what this kid has done through his college career, and you can’t say the defense did it for him.
Kellen Moore in my opinion will be in the NFL for years, and just like Drew Brees did Moore will be a standout even though he will be drafted late. Moore will more than likely end up being drafted by a playoff team and become a backup, but that will beneficial to him because he will be able to sit back and learn from a great staff of coach. Let’s see what NFL team will see what I saw and take advantage of the winningest player in FBS history, Kellen Moore.
