Featured Prospects

Round: 2
Pick (Overall): 13 (45)

Pick Analysis: Moore brings much-needed athleticism, ball skills and playmaking ability to the Broncos' secondary. He should become an immediate contributor in the back end, and the veteran influence of Brian Dawkins should help him reach his potential quickly in Denver. This is a good pick for the Broncos' defense.

Overview

Moore is a true difference maker at the safety position, and he projects to be an immediate starter at the next level. He is extremely rangy with the deep speed to hold up in cover-3, and he has a great closing burst when the ball is in the air. His high cut frame gives him the look of a wide receiver and he has the playmaking abilities to be a ball hawk. He also has great instincts and always seems to be in the right position in coverage. Moore might be the top safety in the class and will likely go before the end of the first round.


Strengths

Moore is long with a muscular build. Has excellent range to be a true centerfielder and cover the deep middle. Shows great awareness in zone coverage and the ability to recognize and jump routes. Possesses terrific hand-eye coordination and comes down with interceptions in traffic. Reads quickly, fills fast and does not shy away from contact in run support.

Weaknesses

Plays a bit high and will not always be able to stick with shiftier slot receivers in man coverage. Very aggressive player that can get beat on occasion with ball fakes. Lacks ideal bulk and struggles to disengage from blockers in run support. Leaves his feet too often when tackling.

Grade

7.6
