Oakland Raiders Draft 2012: QB, Kellen Moore, Boise State

The word on the street is that Kellen Moore will be around in the 6th - 7th Round. Personally, I would have a difficult time passing on this kid in the 6th round.

The current Oakland QB situation looks like this:

Carson Palmer - Awesome, awesome, awesome!

Terrelle Pryor - A HUGE question mark

Rhett Bomar - A Career Practice Squad QB who was cut by Minnesota after getting a DUI in August of 2011

I have to say that after Palmer, the Raiders may be in worse shape than they were last year. In fact, Kellen Moore could come in and perform as well as many of the young QB's did in 2011.

Here is a look at his High School and NCAA Career:

Kellen Moore Wiki

He set Washington state career records for completions (787) and touchdown passes (173). He also set Washington state single-season records for completions (317 as a junior), yards (4,600 as a junior) and touchdown passes (67 as a senior).

In four seasons at Boise State, Kellen Moore passed for over 14,667 yards, 142 TDs and only 28 INTs. That is incredibly solid. If you add this to the fact that he finished his Bachelor's Degree early and is working on his Masters in Kinesiology. He married his High School sweetheart and is already in a mentoring program. What else could you ask for from a kid that you got in the 6th Round?

With a run first team, the Raiders need a smart back-up in this mold who can come in if Carson gets hurt. He would just need to manage the game and let the defense, special teams and running backs win the game.
