William Moore has the potential to be the best safety in the NFL, once Ed Reed and Troy Polamalu retire. His all-around ability as a run stuffer and in coverage is amazing. Khaled Elsayed even has Moore as the Falcons secret superstar for 2012 saying:
The guy many speculated would need to be a linebacker because of his problems in coverage actually turned it on and continued to show a knack for making plays on the ball. His seven pass disruptions (two interceptions and five pass break ups) were bettered by only 14 other safeties, despite him missing large portions of the season.
He should also be a better pass rusher under the new scheme as well. Moore's role in the scheme will look more like Reed or Polamalu's as well. He will be sent after the quarterback or dropped deep into coverage. But much like the rest of the defense, this could be a career year for Moore.
