In my story today, off the field, Boise State quarterback Kellen Moore would never be part of Dick Vitale’s fabled All-Airport team.He’s like the team manager getting off the bus, not a starting quarterback.
What Moore is attempting to do during the draft process is show teams that what they’ve from him on film is not a fluke, despite some of the lesser competition he’s played against during his career with the Broncos.
And despite some of his shortcoming like arm strength, size and athleticism, teams know they will get a smart player who will compete and be prepared if they are willing to take a chance on Moore.
ESPN’s Mike Sando provides a nice overview of Seattle’s options at upgrading the quarterback position.
With the Seahawks eager to improve the team’s pass rush, Danny O’Neil of the Seattle Times takes a look at some of the players likely available in the first round.
Clare Farnsworth of Seahawks.com also takes a look at the pass rushers available in the first round.
Jason Wilde of ESPN Wisconsin provides a good piece on another small quarterback trying to overcome obstacles at the combine, Wisconsin’s Russell Wilson.
Dan Pompei of the National Football Post has an interesting column on the issue of tampering at the scouting combine.
Peter King of Sports Illustrated in his Monday Morning QB says the Seahawks could be in the running to trade up to get RG3, but they like Ryan Tannehill and Brock Osweiler as well. Same stuff I heard at the combine.
Memphis defensive tackle Dontari Poe posted some pretty sick numbers at the combine today, bench pressing 225 pounds 44 times and running an unofficial time of 4.87 seconds in the 40-yard dash. Not bad for someone 6-4 and 346 pounds.
