The Bears selected Boise State defensive end Shea McClellin with their No. 1 pick. At some point in his Chicago career, maybe sooner rather than later, he may be called on to take down a record-setting quarterback and it wont be Aaron Rodgers.

Boise State teammate Kellen Moore went undrafted, signed with the Detroit Lions as an undrafted free agent hopeful behind Matthew Stafford and Shaun Hill, and told the Idaho Statesman, I dont think there will be a more motivated quarterback than me.

Moore, who won a college-record 50 games, was not one of the 11 quarterbacks drafted, finishing with Northern Illinois Chandler Harnish as the final pick of the 2012 draft. Two reasons:

Moores size (6-foot, 197 pounds) is a concern and he doesnt have special arm strength to offset that. He has a lot to overcome, said ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay.

Additionally, not a lot of teams were drafting quarterbacks (11, in fact). The Bears, for example, had taken one in each of the last two drafts (Dan LeFevour, Nathan Enderle) but this offseason signed Jason Campbell and re-signed Josh McCown.

There also werent a lot of teams looking for quarterbacks, McShay said. But theres a legitimate shot Moore can make that team as the No. 3.
