Measurebles: Height: 6’1”  | Weight: 200lbs  | Position: Safety

Production: Superb production from Moore during his 3 years at UCLA. Displayed very good on field awareness with diagnoses of plays in the run and pass. Showed he could be a ball hawk at times with 10 interceptions in 2009, but only 4 combined during 2008 and 2010. Makes quick instinctive decisions when coming up to play the run, or when reading the quarterback in pass defense.

Height-Weight-Speed: Moore has an NFL ready body at 6’1 200lbs and has more than enough quickness and speed to play at the next level. One area that could be an issue is Moore’s long build he shows a bit of tightness in his hips, so quicker WRs may give him some trouble. He’ll be asked to guard some quicker shorter slot receivers, so twisting and turning hips as well as his changing direction will need to be worked on.

Durability: Missed no time during his 3 years at UCLA. Durability should not be an issue for this young man. Has the frame to withstand the punishment he’ll take and give out as an NFL safety. Known to be an extremely hard worker on the field as well as in the weight room, and maintains proper nutrition and diet.

Intangibles: Would like to see more of his ball hawk skills as he displayed in 2009 with the 10 interceptions, but overall Moore’s game is solid. He is smart safety that does not have any huge flaws in his game. He is more of technique tackler than bigger hitter, but will be able to make plays at the next level.

Overall Stock: Moore is considered the best Safety in this year’s draft. Primarily played a lot of zone in college, Moore will need some work on his man to man game. He has enough size and speed though to be able to play man effectively if needed.

NFL comparisons:  Ed Reed, Nate Allen
