Strong Points

Excellent athlete with speed, change of direction and body control. Shows he can play man and zone coverage. Willing run-support player who will come up quickly. Stays low in pedal and can turn smoothly. Good ball reactions.

Weak Points

Doesn't play to timed speed and athleticism all the time. Can be late reacting in coverage and run support. Misses too many tackles -- hits, doesn't always wrap. Average hands. Only a one-year starter.

The Way We See It

Moore, originally considered an undrafted free agent, was not invited to the combine. At the Southern Miss Pro Day, he posted a 4.32 time in the 40, as well as an 11'1” standing long jump, a 6.89 3-cone and a 38 ½” vertical. At that point, NFL clubs quickly came flocking to Southern Miss to play catch up. Moore is a junior college transfer and a one-year starter at Southern Miss. Flashes talent but inconsistent overall play. He is not the most instinctive guy, but Moore has the speed to make up for his late reactions, which can get him out of position. Possesses man-cover skills but will also play too loose at times. Reacts well to the ball in the air but his hands are average and he does not have a large catch radius. Overall, his workout numbers will get him drafted higher than his play dictates, and he may not live up to where he gets drafted. Will be a hit-or-miss player. Instincts are imperative to be a top defensive player in the NFL, and Moore's instincts are average.
