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.
