Moore is a strong, playmaking safety that can alter a game with his unique blend of attributes. He’s a forceful, run defending safety, who also defends well in coverage. He’s fast in pursuit, tracks down ballcarriers and brings them down on initial contact. He anticipates the action well, reads the quarterback, displays a great burst to the ball and uses his excellent ball skills.

Adam Caplan's Flash Analysis He's an in-the-box safety and will replace veteran S Lawyer Milloy, who won't be re-signed. Moore had a great 2007 season, but his play fell off last season which is why he fell out of the first round.
