Moore offers an intriguing skill-set, especially in today's era of unique matchups. His stout frame, agility, physicality and vision project nicely as a slot receiver, returner and even occasional running back, though to be at his best, Moore should be drafted as a complementary target rather than as the No. 1 option he played at Maryland.
Short but certainly not small with a running back-like compact frame including broad shoulders, thick thighs and an impressive all-around musculature that testifies to time spent in the weight room. Possesses a naturally low center of gravity, very good balance and rare core strength for a receiver, which makes it difficult to knock Moore off his feet. Very quick, which helps him gain clear of press coverage, generate separation as a route-runner and is especially effective in eluding defenders once the ball is in his hands. Shows good top-end speed with the first-step acceleration to gain a step on defenders... Accelerates smoothly. Generally a reliable pass-catcher, showing the ability to extend and pluck far outside of his frame. Excellent vision as a ball-carrier, including on cut-backs, exhibiting the spatial awareness to feel defenders around him as well as the patience to allow his blocks to develop (Nebraska-2016). Alert and competitive downfield blocker. Experienced punt and kick returner. Durable performer, leaving Maryland with 35 consecutive starts... Highly regarded by the Maryland coaching staff for a "contagious" attitude and work ethic... -- Rob Rang 1/2/2018
Golden Tate, Lions - Like Tate (a former prep running back), Moore possesses a squatty, powerful frame which makes him a tough draw for the wiry cornerbacks typically tasked with covering him. At this point, Moore is not as polished a route-runner and hands-catcher as Tate but is an intriguing athlete with the work ethic to develop in this regard.
Obvious size limitations, almost surely meaning that Moore will be relegated to slot receiver duties in the NFL. Lacks the length and leaping ability to provide much of a target on the perimeter, too easily being squeezed into the sideline... Was not asked to run a variety of routes with the Terrapins, doing the majority of his damage on relatively simple complementary patterns like quick screens, curls and drag routes... Needs to show the same burst out of his breaks that he shows in eluding defenders after the catch... Too often allows the football into his chest with some ugly drops on tape (Michigan State-2017). No touchdowns on 30 combined punt (15) and kickoff (15) returns over his career... -- Rob Rang 1/2/2018
