Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Reads quarterbacks eyes and reacts quickly to targets in zone coverage.
  • Moody has a compact build, but Moody is a crafty edge player who is very good against the run. He sets the edge and effectively wards off blocks with a strong core, powerful limbs, and natural leverage.
  • He has violent hands and consistently breaks away and disengages from blockers. He’s instinctive, reading, reacting and locating the ball quickly, and finishing plays as an authoritative, wrap-up tackler.
  • He has enough speed to chase and run in pursuit. He has the overall athleticism to hold up in space when dropping into coverage.
  • He has ability as a blitzer, with the length and flexibility to get around the edge.
  • Moody plays bigger than his listed size, with the functional strength and motor to take on and hold ground against much bigger blockers.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Lacks functional strength to shed and take on blocks at the point of attack.
  • Size will be a problem. Moody doesn’t have much in the way of take-on skills, struggling to shed once blockers get into his body due to short arms and a relative lack of upper-body strength.
  • Moody lacks the ability to drop weight and anchor against the run, getting manhandled at the point of attack.
