D.J Moore

D.J Moore

 

Name: D.J Moore

Position: Cornerback

School: Vanderbilt

Height & Weight: 5-10 / 182

Class: Senior

What I Think: D.J Moore is one of the most versatile players in the entire NFL Draft. In addition to being the defensive star for the surprising Vanderbilt Commodores, Moore also returns kicks and is sometimes used at receiver to maximize his rare assembly of skills. Height is a bit of a disadvantage for him and I would prefer for him to be a tiny bit higher. He still is an athletic freak though. He is so fast that he runs a 4.4 and I think that he will improve off of that at the NFL Combine. Moore was already off to a stellar start in 2008, shutting down his opponents’ best receivers and leading the conference in punt returning. In other words, he is picking up right where he left off with his remarkable 2007 campaign as a sophomore. His ability to turn hips and make plays on the ball is amazing. Moore also is one of the most intelligent Cornerbacks in the NFL today. Moore is just a junior, but he already has plenty of experience. He played in every Vanderbilt game as a true freshman in 2006 and even started nine consecutive games at cornerback. He is quick of his feet and has efficient steps. He isn’t a great tackler though when he breaks down before a tackle and often hits the mark as he lunges. Moore was not asked to jam the receiver often and was merely average when he did.

Draft Grade: B+
