Strong Points

Strong and productive wide receiver. Has good hands. Very good runner after the catch. Best as a short-to-mid-range receiver but has the speed to get deep. Strong hands and adjusts to the ball. Good-to-very good athlete -- explosive. Good route runner -- shows he can get in and out of cuts quickly. Knows how to use moves to his benefit. Will compete in traffic. Good blocker. Good punt returner. Ran and worked out very well at the combine, helping his draft status.

Weak Points

Thick, muscular build -- looks more like a running back. Will have some concentration drops. Not a consistent separator. On tape he doesn't play as fast as he timed and worked out.

The Way We See It

Moore is a true junior. He has been starting since Game Three of his freshman year. Very difficult guy to evaluate. As productive as he is, he played with a horrible quarterback and often got open only to have the ball under thrown or way off target. I said that separation was a weak point -- but is it really? The QB just couldn't throw accurately enough to evaluate it properly. Moore was forced to make some great catches. He has a quick burst and, though he showed he has great speed in Indy, I don't always see it on tape. With his build and running style, Moore looks more like a running back than receiver. Can be a very physical player. Should be able to play outside or inside and become a good all-around threat at the NFL level. There is a lot to like about his game. Going into the combine, most thought his workout would be very important in determining his draft status. He ended up having one of the best workouts of all the receivers. He will be a premium-round guy -- and perhaps a first-round pick.
