POSITIVES

—Short and thick frame that he uses to be aggressive at the line of scrimmage.

—Big-time contributor on special teams.

—Handsy player who can annoy receivers throughout the rep.

—Frame can handle tackling responsibilities on boundary, and he's fearless in contact.

     

NEGATIVES

—Missed time in 2015 and 2017 with leg injuries.

—Lateral agility is poor and won't cut it against receivers who can work clean releases versus press coverage.

—Lacks ball skills and doesn't have strong spatial awareness skills to play receiver and the ball at the catch point.

—Doesn't have the click-and-close burst needed to routinely close windows.

     

OVERALL

Moore uses his stout frame to disrupt receivers any opportunity he gets. The rest of his game is underwhelming and shows a limited athlete that will struggle to compete consistently with NFL-caliber receivers with good footwork. He's a training-camp body and special teams player who should hope to land on a practice squad.

     

GRADE: 4.99 (Camp Body)

PRO PLAYER COMPARISON: Jeremy Clark, New York Jets
