Senior Bowl notes: North Team practice, January 24, 2012, Part II

Kellen Moore is making very nice short throws, but I've yet to see him connect on anything downfield.

7 on 7’s

– Kellen Moore with 3 consecutive nice balls to Emil Igwenagu, Marvin McNutt, and Gerell Robinson.  Realizing that sentence would have been funnier if it 2 consecutive nice balls.  Moore had a nice day today.  That’s how I’d classify it, personally… Nice, as opposed to some other reports I’ve been hearing about him today.  He looked good throwing in the short-intermediate zones, but I can’t recall him completing anything longer than 15 yards downfield.

– Michael Egnew with a drop from Kirk Cousins.

– I’ve been watching Lavonte David in coverage in these 7 on 7 drills.  He looks great.  On consecutive plays I watched him blanket DeVier Posey.  David is a LB.  Posey is a WR.  David doesn’t have good size at 6’0, 225, but he can certainly cover.

– Little checkdown to Isaiah Pead.  Yesterday, in the North Team practices, the buzz was that Pead looked like the best RB.  I didn’t attend that practice.  Personally, I liked what I saw from Vick Ballard today.  More on him in a bit.

– Russell Wilson hits McNutt on 10 yard out.  Nice zip on the throw.  McNutt then catches another 10 yard hitch, followed by a deep ball from Kellen Moore that falls incomplete.  McNutt just keeps getting open, and the North Team QBs are giving him a ton of targets.

– Really nice pass from Kellen Moore to Brian Quick.  His best ball of the day.  The big questions about Moore are his size, which is obvious in person, and his arm strength.  This was a legitimate pro throw.  He put it high where the 6’4 Quick could go get it.  Crisp throw down the seam.  Well done.

– Another nice pass from Moore to Igwenagu.  Drop.  That’s his 2nd drop of the day.

– Russell Wilson with a 5 yard stop to Quick.  Slow decision making here by Wilson.  Stared Quick down, took a beat, then decided to throw.  Release was pretty slow as well.  That’s a completion in 7 on 7 drills at the Senior Bowl.  It’ll be a lot uglier in the NFL.

– Wilson with a better pass this time.  Hits a wide open Posey over the middle.

11 on 11’s:

– Great penetration by Kendall Reyes from the DT position.  Split two offensive linemen and blew up the play.  Kirk Cousins was immediately flushed from the pocket.

– Diving interception by George Iloka.  Cousins faced immediate pressure again, tried to roll right and fit one in near the sideline, but Iloka dove in front and made the pick.  Really well done.  I talked about Iloka earlier.  He struggled a bit in 1-on-1’s against receivers, but he’s a big boy at 6’4, 222.  Showed some nice awareness here.

– Kevin Zeitler is in at center.  He’s typically a guard.  Zeitler had a low snap in shotgun, and Kellen Moore had to throw the ball away, and later there was another mishandled snap.  I didn’t see if the 2nd mishandled snap was on Zeitler or the QB, but it certainly looks like Zeitler isn’t particularly comfortable as a center.  But again, it’s not his normal position.

– After a generally very good day, McNutt drops a deep ball from Kirk Cousins.  Really good throw from Cousins.  50 yards into the wind, and it was on the mark.

    What are your thoughts on Kellen Moore as an Eagle? I believe he could be a good backup QB, especially in a WCO.

    1. The Eagles like to attack downfield a lot. I’m not sure I’d be comfortable with Moore throwing 20+ yard passes with any sort of regularity.
