Terence Moore
6-1/218 Troy
4.72 Senior

Pros: Does a nice job keeping things in front of him. Capable in run support and shows willingness to hit.

Cons: Doesn't wrap as a tackler and will miss stops in the open field, particularly at the point of attack. Lacks hips to match up with receivers in the slot and lacks speed.

Overview: He's an average defensive prospect that doesn't do anything particularly well. Overshadowed by Sherrod Martin, but still managed team leading 6 picks as a senior.

NFL Forecast: Moore's chances of NFL success are marginal at best. He doesn't impact in run support or coverage, so unless he can really excel on special teams it will be tough for him to make a roster. Doesn't play like you'd expect from a 218-pound safety and his lack of speed also doesn't help him. Maybe he could be a linebacker in the AFL, but his NFL prospects are very limited.

ATL Forecast: Unless Moore proves to a beast on special teams, he's not going to cut it Atlanta. He could push for time at strong safety, but he's just a camp body that will be somewhere else a year from now.

Value: Not worth drafting, but maybe a team is willing to give him a shot next year.
