Player Overview

Moore is a former three-star wide receiver recruit from Tampa Jefferson who signed with Cincinnati over programs like Illinois, West Virginia, Texas Tech and Michigan State in the class of 2011.

He redshirted that first fall after breaking a collar bone in fall camp. During his first season playing for the Bearcats he hauled in three passes for 88 yards and a touchdown.

His breakout season came in 2013, when Moore started 10 of 12 games, recording 45 receptions for 645 yards and scoring nine times. Over his final two years in Cincinnati, Moore caught 70 passes for 1,543 yards and 15 touchdowns in 24 games (22 starts). Moore leaves as the school record holder in touchdowns scored.

Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Moore has above average height and very good speed. He has quickness, too, and is tough to jam at and off the line of scrimmage. This quickness allows him to get up the field and into his route very quickly.

Moore has very good deep speed and just a great knack for getting behind a defense. He produced a ton of big plays for the Bearcats and is a true home-run threat. He can play on the inside as a slot or outside on the perimeter.

Moore shows good, consistent hands, catching the ball away from his body. He's good in the air and can consistently high point the football, showing excellent hand-eye coordination, body control and field awareness. Moore can go low and displays a large catch radius for a quarterback. He runs good, clean routes and can create a ton of separation.

WEAKNESSES: Moore needs to bulk up and gain weight and strength, particularly up top. Things will be much more difficult in the NFL for him, especially with competing physical cornerbacks at the point of attack. As with most receivers at the same stage, he needs to become a better route runner and blocker on the perimeter for his teammates.

IN OUR VIEW: Moore looks like a good, explosive wide receiver for the pros who was highly productive and consistent in college. If he can prove to be more than a one trick pony (deep threat) in the NFL, then someone could find a very good prospect, likely in the middle rounds.
