ALLEN PARK, Mich. Since leading Boise State to 50 victories in four years to become college footballs all-time winningest quarterback, all Kellen Moore has heard is that he doesnt have the arm strength, height or athleticism to play in the NFL.
His mission to prove otherwise began Friday afternoon when Moore, an undrafted free agent, took part in the Detroit Lions rookie mini-camp.
For the first time since he started playing football in the third grade, Moore wasnt wearing No. 11 on the field.
He chose that number as a kid because his favorite player on his fathers high-school team wore it, but 11 is taken by receiver Stefan Logan on the Lions. So Moore wore No. 17.
It should have been No. 256.
Why? Because there were 255 players selected in the NFL Draft, and he wasnt one of them.
Shortly after that snub, Moore vowed that there would be no quarterback more motivated than him.
Thats kind of past us, he said when asked Friday about what he has to prove since not being drafted...
