Pick Analysis: The Bears add another corner for depth in their secondary with the selection of Joshua Moore. The Bears have struggled in the back end over the past few seasons, and Moore becomes another player that will compete for time at the position.

Overview

Moore is a short, compactly built player with good athleticism and power. He doesn't have ideal footwork and agility for the cornerback position and is a bit of a 'tweener for an NFL secondary. He is inconsistent with his instincts and leveraging the ball in the open field. Moore is tough and competitive but inconsistent as a run-support player. He could improve his overall play with better footwork and technique, as he does have decent speed once he transitions. Moore has been productive over the past two seasons and can contribute as a rookie on special teams and as a nickel back in sub packages.


Strengths

Strongly built athlete, who possesses good top-end speed. Can give receivers a cushion and close fast. Makes hits and does not shy away from contact. Aggressive mentality makes him a good contributor on special teams. Very productive in the Big 12.

Weaknesses

Does not use his feet efficiently, which slows him in and out of breaks and makes him a liability in man coverage. Overall agility is lacking, which may force a move to safety. Takes poor angles when tackling in the open field and does not have the instincts to consistently anticipate the play.

Grade

2.1
