NFL Draft analysis for Tarvarius Moore, FS, Southern Mississippi
Draft Prospect Outlook:
Dynamic athlete at either safety positions. Typically a sound tackler but a handful of misses on film. Despite explosive movements, can be stiff-hipped in his backpedal. Plus ball skills and impressive leaping ability. Quality range too.
