In coverage Moten notched up 2 pass breakups, one interception, and QB rating when targetted of 80.3. He added 6 total pressures, and no sacks on the season.

In coverage he totaled no pass breakups, one interception, and QB rating when targetted of 56.9. In addition he forced 7 total pressures, and 2 sacks during the year.

He chalked up only 5 tackles, one assist, and added 3 stops. In the secondary Moten forced no pass breakups, no interceptions, and gave up QB rating when targetted of 91.7.
Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Understands zone concepts and is aware of his surroundings. Reliable tackler who reacts quickly when Moten sees it.
  • Very good in run support, an aggressive tackler, and capable of breaking down and securing tackles in space.
  • Strong hands to make plays on the ball, effective blitzer who shows well-coached technique and awareness.
  • Does a very good job of reading the eyes of the quarterback and reacting with good field awareness and ball skills.
  • Physical, sheds defenders and works off blocks. Good toughness with recognition skills to fight through traffic and blow up screens.
  • Has the quick, agile feet and fluid hips to mirror quickness and change direction underneath. But he’s at his best facing the action.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Feet aren’t ideal, as Moten gets sloppy in his backpedal and can be sluggish when transitioning to close on the ball.
  • Inconsistent getting off of blocks. Can be a step slow to react when a quarterback comes back to his side of the field late in progression.
  • Vulnerable to big plays trying to bait the quarterback.

*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.
