Kellen Moore To Lions As Undrafted Free Agent, According To Report

Former Boise State QB Kellen Moore went undrafted in the 2012 NFL Draft and has now reached an agreement on an undrafted free agent deal with the Detroit Lions, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Moore is the winningest quarterback in FBS history.

Moore enters Detroit solely as a backup to Matthew Stafford, who is clearly the future of the franchise. Stafford does have a history of injury so if Moore can make the roster, and perhaps even the No. 2 job, he's only a snap away from playing. Of course, that's a lot more difficult than just agreeing to a contract, which is all he's done now.

SB Nation's Mocking The Draft's scouting report:

Strengths: An intelligent, experienced field general of a quarterback. Moore does an excellent job of reading the defense before the snap. A winner. Moore has arguably the best anticipation skills in this year's draft. Expertly knows exactly where and when his wide receiver is supposed to be to complete the pass. Would be a first-round pick if he weren't so physically limited. Will be a great backup.

Weaknesses: Moore's arm strength is average to poor and will have a hard time making a lot of NFL throws. Doesn't get a lot of zip on his passes and will struggle putting the ball in a tight window. Slight frame.
