Married. Younger brother, Kirby, is a receiver for the Broncos and father, Tom, was their high school coach. Kellen also played basketball as a Washington prep and was lightly recruited despite setting state career records for completions (787) and touchdown passes (173) in three years as a starter, including a senior season in which he was named Gatorade Player of the Year after completing 287-of-399 pass attempts (71.9 percent) for 4,269 yards with 67 TDs and seven interceptions. Redshirted in 2007. Set an NCAA record for passes completed by a freshman and was voted the Broncos offensive MVP after passing 281-405-3,486-25-10 (69.4). Set the NCAA single-season record for lowest percentage of passes intercepted (0.69) and was the Western Athletic Conference Offensive Player of the Year in ’09 when he totaled 277-431-3,536-39-3 (64.3). Was a finalist for the Heisman Trophy and the Davey O’Brien, Maxwell and Manning Awards in ’10 as he amassed 273-383-3,845-35-6 (71.3). Graduated in December 2010. In ’11, he threw for 326-439-3,800-43-9 (74.3) in 13 starts to set the school record for touchdown passes and earn him Mountain West Offensive Player of the Year honors. Was named the best college quarterback in the country by the Touchdown Club of Columbus for a second straight season, joining Matt Leinart (USC) and Ken Dorsey (Miami, Fla.) as the only two-time winners. Missed only one start in his career (senior Bush Hamden started his final home game against Fresno State in ’08) and had an eye-popping 49-3 record in 52 career starts.


Like another coordinator on the field (coach’s son). Excellent decision maker — has a sixth sense for making correct reads even in the face of pressure. Quick, loose arm. Throws with timing and anticipation. Outstanding field vision — scans progressions and locates open receivers. Smooth ball handler. Consistent short-to-intermediate accuracy. Nice downfield touch. Takes care of the football. Poised beyond his years. Durable, experienced, four-year starter. Slayed BCS-conference teams on big stages. Confident and competitive. Football junkie who breathes football.


Short and lacks bulk. Could struggle finding throwing lanes. Fringe arm strength. Below-average foot athlete. Limited mobility to escape the rush. Not a scramble threat. Stats are inflated by mid-major competition and spread system.


A better football player than athlete, Moore is an undersized, productive, instinctive, intelligent, soft-tossing southpaw with a winning pedigree and sparkling intangibles. Height and arm strength always will be limiting factors but should have a long career, as he possesses ideal backup QB makeup to function competently with minimal reps in a precision-matchup offense such as that of the Saints. Might be the rare exception (a la Doug Flutie) capable of overcoming physical shortcomings in the right offense.
