Kellen Moore, former Boise State quarterback, was hopeful that he would end up being signed during the recent NFL draft. Unfortunately, he watched as QB after QB were scarfed up by various teams, leaving him with feels of frustration once everything was said and done. Eleven quarterbacks were drafted, and Moore was not one of them.

However, don’t go feeling sorry for the guy just yet. Despite the fact that he wasn’t drafted, several teams came calling after the fact, hoping to snag the record-breaking athlete as a free agent. Once the dust settled, Moore had signed on with the Detroit Lions, a team he was anxious to play for from the get-go. Presently, Moore will be the third string quarterback, behind Matthew Stafford and backup Shaun Hill.

Reports claim that Moore wasn’t drafted because of his size and his arm strength. Furthermore, analysts have stated beforehand that he zero chance of being picked up during the draft.

“Very frustrating process,” Moore said in a recent interview, “but a great outcome in the end. “Going into it, you felt very comfortable and confident that you’d get an opportunity to get drafted. Bottom line is it didn’t happen. But it’s kind of funny you end up where you’d love to go in the first place. … There are two great (quarterbacks) to learn from and I think that presents a great opportunity going in there.”

Lots of people on Twitter seem to think it’s crazy that Moore wasn’t drafted. A selection of their responses have been embedded below.
