Moore, listed at 6'1", 196 pounds, was a three-year starter for the Bruins at free safety. He was considered by many to be the top safety available in this draft.
Named to multiple postseason All-American teams following his sophomore and junior campaigns (including the Sporting News’ first team and Associated Press’ third team in 2010), Moore was seen by many as having underachieved his final campaign in Westwood.
Nonetheless, he was a Thorpe Award semifinalist, he was named to the Nagurski Trophy, Lott Trophy and Bednarik Award watch lists, and he was one of just three All-Pac-10 first-team performers to repeat from 2009.
Says NFL.com’s Gil Brandt:
“Moore moves effortlessly in his turns and transitions, and he flashed excellent ball skills and hands. He looks like a true centerfield-type safety with the skills to develop into a ballhawk at the next level. The only concern that surfaced was a lack of conditioning…otherwise, he solidified his status as a top-50 selection.”
