Record Six Broncos Drafted by NFL; Kellen Moore Signs With Lions


It didn't take long for the formal proceedings of the 2012 NFL Draft to finish before Boise State quarterback Kellen Moore struck a deal. Though he was not chosen during the draft, Moore was quickly signed by the Detroit Lions as a free agent early Saturday evening. Moore would be the third quarterback on the Lions roster behind Matthew Stafford and Shaun Hill. If Moore makes the cut, he is expected to join Boise State veteran Titus Young with the Lions.

A record six Boise State Broncos ended up as draft picks in the marathon sessions that stretched from Thursday evening through Saturday afternoon. They were:

- Defensive end Shea McClellin (first round) to the Chicago Bears
- Running back Doug Martin (first round) to the Tampa Bay Bucs
- Defensive end Tyrone Crawford (third round) to the Dallas Cowboys
- Safety George Iloka (fifth round) to the Cincinnati Bengals
- Defensive tackle Billy Winn (sixth round) to the Cleveland Browns
- Offensive tackle Nate Potter (seventh round) to the the Arizona Cardinals
