Maaco Las Vegas Bowl.

Sam Boyd Stadium/Las Vegas, Nevada


Boise State (11-1)

#11 QB Kellen Moore, Redshirt-Senior – 5-11 ¾, 195 pounds, 4.98 seconds in the 40-yard dash – No other starting quarterback in college football won as many games as Moore during his four years with the Broncos. He led them to a 49-3 record in his 52 starts, throwing for 14,390 yards, completing 69.6 percent of his passes, with 140 TDs and only 28 interceptions. His 41 TD passes this season included the 100th of his career in Boise’s season opener. Most scouts see Moore as a late-round draft choice because of his size and a less than powerful arm. But in light of the success of Tim Tebow, more than a few teams will re-evaluate because it’s tough to find quarterbacks with a winning pedigree to the extent that Moore has earned during his time with the Broncos. Figure him to go in the fourth or fifth round, as long as he puts together strong post-season performances in the Senior Bowl and at the Combine.

#22 RB Doug Martin, Redshirt-Senior – 5-9, 210 pounds, 4.48 seconds in the 40-yard dash – He’s had back-to-back, 1,000-yards seasons for the Broncos and finished his career with 3,284 rushing yards and 52 rushing TDs. He averaged 5.6 yards per carry with his bowling ball style that usually went between the tackles. Martin did not get used much as a receiver in the Boise offense, but he averaged more than 10 yards per catch. His size will keep him out of the first two rounds, but Martin is considered a third-round talent.

Arizona State (6-6)

#8 WR Gerell Robinson, Senior – 6-3 ¼, 222 pounds, 4.58 seconds in the 40-yard dash – Highly sought after recruit coming out of high school, but he didn’t really live up to the hype until his senior year with the Aztecs. This season he caught 64 passes for 1,156 yards and 6 TDs. Robinson finished his 45-game career with 122 catches for 1,830 yards and 11 scores. He’s pegged as a fifth-round prospect.

#92 DE Jamaar Jarrett, Senior – 6-5, 262 pounds, 4.9 seconds in the 40-yard dash – His senior season was a bit of a disappointment, as was the entire season for ASU. He played in 46 games with 96 total tackles, 19.5 TFLs, 7.5 sacks and 2 forced fumbles over his career. He’s a sixth or seventh-round potential pick.

    If Moore goes in the later rounds then a lot of teams will be kicking themselves in the future. I’ve watched a lot of football over the years and I knew this kid was going to be good the first game I saw him. Scouts are right, he is a bit short and doesn’t have the strongest arm. The scouts are wrong. This is what the kid has that will make him a winning starting QB in the NFL.
    -Accurate. Very Accurate.
    -Sees the whole field and always knows exactly where ALL of his receivers are.
    -Doesn’t stare down his receivers. In fact, he is very good at looking off and faking out DB’s and Linebackers.
    -knows and understands defenses. He is almost never fooled. TCU’s coach said that in 3 games against him they actually fooled him on a total of one play.
    -Moves his feet very well to avoid pressure and keeps his eyes down field at the same time.
    -Stands in against pressure and still makes accurate throws.
    -Never gets rattled. He has ice water in his veins. Reminds me a lot of Montana in this respect and some others.
    -He is a student of the game and loves the film room even all the way back in High School.

    If Moore is given a chance he will be as good as Brees and others like him. I have watched every single game of his career. I know this kid and he will be good. This is not just the skewed talk of a BSU fan. I knew the guy who proceeded him (Zebranski) would not make it in the NFL. He was a good college QB, but lacked the head for the NFL. Moore has the intangibles in Spades.
