Kellen Moore, Boise State
As the quarterback for those feisty Boise State University teams that all the “big name” college football teams were terrified to play (because of the very probable chance they’d lose), Kellen Moore became the first quarterback in FBS history to win 50 games in his career. Leading the Boise State Broncos to four-straight Western Athletic Conference (WAC) Championships and being named the WAC Offensive Player of the Year three years in a row, Moore was also a two-time first-team All-American despite playing in a mostly “overlooked” school.
However, as a short quarterback with unimpressive arm strength, he went undrafted. Moore would spend time with both the Lions and Cowboys as a backup, starting two games in 2015 but throwing four touchdowns to six interceptions in his brief NFL action. After retiring following the 2017 season, Moore stayed with the Cowboys as the quarterbacks coach and was named the team’s offensive coordinator in 2019.
