STRENGTHS - Moore has the ability to get around the edges quickly on blitz packages, and has the ability to play man coverage against TE / RB from a trail alignment. He is a physical player, bends his knees well and has the ability to explode up on a block. Shows very good form tackling at times and can come up with the big hit. He reacts very well to the play and has very good footwork that allows him to bounce outside or cut inside quickly on a run play. He shows very good coordination as he showed the ability to rush the QB and was able to time the throw and knock the ball down.
WEAKNESSES - Moore is not a player that will go sideline to sideline quickly and always be around the play. He needs to avoid going for the big hit as he will hit high and not wrap up at times, which leads him to miss tackles he has shown the ability to easily make when he uses good form. His coverage skills down the field are questionable as he does not flip his hips quickly and therefore can be turned around easily. He does not consistently read and react to the play fast and has to improve his football smarts to produce at the level of his athleticism.
SUMMARY - Moore is a very athletic football player. He has the ability to play both man coverage and zone coverage, although he needs to flip his hips without losing a step more consistently. He will struggle in press coverage as he does not flip his hips quickly and can therefore be turned around, but he has the ability to play coverage well against TE over the middle. He has solid ball skills, although his hands need to improve. He can turn the corner quickly tp be a very good pass rush LB off the edge, although he needs to develop more pass rush moves. His quickness around the edges work in college, but he will need to add some moves and become stronger at the POA to be an effective pass rusher at the next level. Overall Moore can play in both a 3-4 defense as he has the ability to rush the QB, and a 4-3 as he has the ability to play in coverage. He projects as a solid backup and will need to improve on his coverage skills and become more consistent wrapping up if he is going to become a starter in the NFL. .
