Overview

Moten's a potential reserve outside linebacker and special teams contributor. However, lacks the range and athleticism to play on the weakside and lacks the power the hold up on the strongside as a starter. Can be productive at the line on the strong side setting the edge and holding up at the point of attack but is a liability against powerful run blockers. Tackles well in tight spaces but can be caught off balance on the perimeter. Not well equipped to drop into coverage in the NFL and isn't a feared pass rusher. Moten could sneak into the late rounds because of his character and effort.


Strengths

Moten's a sound player who maintains his position and is accountable for responsibilities within your defensive system. Does a good job holding outside contain when lined up over tight ends. Flashes the ability to makes plays in pursuit. Tackles well in the box. Tough player and a team captain.

Weaknesses

Does not possess difference-making size or athleticism. Needs to be quicker while shedding blocks. Struggles in a phone booth when asked to take on offensive linemen and anchor. Inconsistent tackler out in space. Liability in zone coverage due to lack of speed and quickness. Limited pass-rushing arsenal.

Grade

2.0
