Moore signed with App State to stick around North Carolina after earning regional Offensive Player of the Year honors as a high school senior running back. As a redshirt freshman, Sun Belt Conference coaches named him to the All-Freshman squad (99-731-7.4, five rushing TDs). Moore earned those coaches' respect again in 2016, as they named him the SBC Offensive Player of the Year as a part-time starter (237-1,450-5.9, 10 rushing TDs; seven starts in 13 games). Moore was a first-team all-conference selection his junior year, leading the conference with 1,037 yards (183 carries, 5.7 per; 12 TD) despite missing two games due to injury. He was the Dollar General Bowl MVP with 125 rushing yards and three scores, and also caught 12 passes for 163 yards and a touchdown for the year. Moore's senior season was short-circuited by a fracture and dislocation of his right ankle. He played in only five games, with four starts, in 2018 but still scored six times on the ground (63-400-6.3 rushing; 6-40-6.7 receiving).

Overview
Blue-collar runner displaying resilience when offensive line fails to forge a path for him. Moore has ability to find yardage on his own, but he's not overly dynamic as a runner and his top-end speed doesn't always show up as play speed on tape. His physical demeanor -- especially in pass protection -- should appeal to teams but he will need to improve as a pass-catcher.
Strengths
  • Looks the part with sculpted physique throughout
  • Workout warrior expected to run fast and post explosive vertical and broad totals
  • Comfortable fit in team's outside zone scheme
  • Patient runner with ability to process moving pieces quickly
  • Adequate lateral agility to shake tacklers in close proximity
  • Tough inside runner and finishes his run in space
  • Runs with square pads, bolstering tackle-breaking and ability to fall forward
  • Loads up pads to engage tacklers with force
  • Gritty pass protection, keeping himself between defender and quarterback
Weaknesses
  • Suffered fractured, dislocated ankle in mid-October
  • Might lack get-away burst after eluding tackler
  • More fast than sudden
  • Appears to be more consistent with reads on zone plays over gap plays
  • Allows base to narrow at times
  • Skills more suited for grinder role than dynamic ball-carrier
  • Elementary route-running with very little career production as pass catcher
