Moody helped his Roman Catholic High School team to the league championship as a senior. Throughout his career, he played cornerback, safety and linebacker on defense, and receiver on offense. Heralded as a four star prospect and one of the top high school players in Pennsylvania, Moody chose FSU over offers from Penn State, Georgia Tech, Michigan State and Temple.
In his first year at Florida State, Moody took a redshirt after suffering a shoulder injury that required surgery. The following year, he appeared in all 13 games for the Seminoles and earned two starts at the rover position. He totaled 33 tackles on the season. In 2010, Moody started at safety, where he registered 79 tackles (four for loss), two pass breakups, and one interception, which he returned for a score. Moody dealt with a lingering groin injury in 2011, which limited him to only nine games and just 23 tackles. In 2012, Moody moved to linebacker, and had 20 tackles and one sack in 14 games.
Future Hall of Famer
A once-in-a-generation type prospect who could change how his position is played
An impact player with the ability/intangibles to become a Pro Bowl player. Expect to start immediately except in a unique situation (i.e. behind a veteran starter).
A quality player who will contribute to the team early on and is expected to develop into a starter. A reliable player who brings value to the position.
A prospect with the ability to make team as a backup/role player. Needs to be a special teams contributor at applicable positions. Players in the high range of this category might have long-term potential.
A player with solid measurables, intangibles, college achievements, or a developing skill that warrants an opportunity in an NFL camp. In the right situation, he could earn a place on a 53-man roster, but most likely will be a practice squad player or a camp body.
