Overview

Classic 'tweener who dominated the Pac-10 at times as a big wide receiver, but lacks the speed most teams are looking for at the position and may ultimately be forced inside as a receiving specialist at tight end. Signed with Stanford as one of the nation's more highly decorated two-sport athletes, and saw time for the Cardinal basketball team as a freshman and sophomore before focusing on football. Blessed with the combination of size, athleticism and hands to be an intriguing specialist, but significant durability concerns make Moore a late-round or free-agent prospect.

Negatives: Lacks the speed teams prefer on the outside and has zero experience as a tight end. ...
