Draft Analysis:

Moore will have a chance to earn a special teams job in camp. He's a size/speed receiver if he can earn a spot in the 'Hawks rotation. --Mark Dulgerian

Analysis

Strengths

Outstanding combination of size and speed. Ran a 4.42-second 40-yard dash at his pro day. Has the frame to overwhelm smaller cornerbacks. Was too physical for his level of competition to handle. Scored 23 touchdowns over the last two years. Feet are much quicker in tight quarters than expected. Quick to take off after the catch and has power to plow through tacklers. Will work back to his quarterback when needed

Weaknesses

Route speed is erratic. Routes tend to be run at about 80 percent of this top speed and he will need to play faster on the next level. Too often unchallenged by quality opponents across from him. Plays with some hip-tightness that limits his ability to sink into breaks for sharp cuts. Needs to do a better job of attacking jump balls at the high point.

Bottom Line

Teams like the Seahawks covet height, weight and speed prospects and Moore certainly fits in that slot. He doesn’t always play to his timed speed, but when he opens it up, he can really move. Moore’s biggest challenge could be creating space for himself inside his routes as his tight hips prevent the desired level of suddeness getting into and out of his breaks.
