Kellen Moore's Height and speed is the Key to his NFL chances of landing a team. A mere 2 inches shy of an NFL bench mark and a .333 seconds slow in the forty, falls out of the NFL constructs. However, his strength is not in his height or speed or throwing velocity, but in his intellectual finesse of the game of football, and his use of the tools given him by God. To play the pro game more often than not, speed is not the ultimate game breaker, but how you play the game at any position. He can see the field, the defensive scheme, and knows the play to the extent he throws to a spot even though the receiver is out of the wide angle lens view of your TV. He throws to a defensively dead spot on the field and then the receiver arrives. His height is not factor, and only comes into play several times a game where he merely shuffles his feet a few feet to validate what he already knows, an open receiver and a spot to throw.
Tall quarter backs throw to a visual receiver, and not often to a timing spot as Kellen does. Defenses are designed to follow receivers and Quarterbacks to lock down the pass. Kellen throws to a dead spot before the receiver cuts for the spot. The defenders react and are a half step behind, finding themselves too late. Height, speed are not part of this game and its most difficult to cover the field with multiple receivers and a Quarterback's choreographic read on the defense. How do you defend a Quarterback's non tendencies and opportunities, "yes, opportunities", after the ball is snapped. Kellen is special and defies NFL logic. The game of inches,speed and velocity, is nullified when Kellen arrives.
