Scouting Report: Strengths
  • He’s tall-framed with long arms to match. With his powerful hands, straight-line speed, and fluidity in his hips, turning and chasing downfield shouldn’t be a problem.
  • He's instinctive, adept at reading routes and anticipating throws, and strong in zone coverage.
  • Good strength to tackle. Plays with high energy and is a tough-minded overachiever.
  • Tracks the ball well downfield and shows good ball skills, including the ability to go up and high-point it in contested-catch situations.
  • Our player can track the ball downfield and gets his head around when playing in a trail position, though he can sometimes get handsy. Shows good ball skills when breaking on a route. While he attempts to support in runs, his focus often leans towards the strip more than the tackle.
  • Very aggressive attacking receiver blocks and shows tackling ability, reminiscent of a safety.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Moore runs well, but doesn’t have elite recovery speed.
  • He isn’t great in route recognition when he’s facing the action, is hesitant and susceptible to double moves, and too often gets unnecessarily handsy when playing trail position.
  • Susceptible to the big plays as a gambler at the catch point and as a catch-and-run victim. He’s also somewhat reluctant to come up and make hits in run support, often focusing on the strip more than the tackle.

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
