2009 NFL Draft Prospects: <br> William Moore Profile
Strengths: Terrific size and bulk with sub 4.5 speed ... Great instincts to diagnose the play ... Comfortable in run support and does not hesitate to lay the wood ... Adept to creating turnovers (10 interceptions, 4 forced fumbles in past three seasons) ... Playmaker who is always around the football ... Versatility to play strong or free safety, but is more well suited to be in the box ... Natural ability to blitz and get in the opponents backfield ... Outstanding leader.
Weaknesses: Does he have the recovery speed to play free safety? ... Somewhat disappointing senior campaign after a phenomenal junior season ... Needs to refine backpedal in coverage ... Sometimes plays out of control.
Summary: Moore provides some versatility, but I believe he will make his mark in the NFL as a strong safety ... He is a great playmaker and should instantly earn playing time in the league ... Solid first-round pick with the potential to go in the top 10.
Player Comparison: Adrian Wilson. Wilson does his damage in the running game, but he is also solid in pass coverage. Both players know how to make plays and be game-changers.
@shimmy I agree that Walker is a fantastic athlete, but comparing his numbers to Bosa does not really hold up. Bosa played true 4-3 DE against the corn fed Big 10 O-lines. I think Walker is a 3-4 OLB at the next level. Both have elite talent, just different. Bosa has a bit more power, and Walker has more speed and quickness.
I dont think number 34 will get Garrapulo. I think S.F. will have to trade the nunber 2 pick for Garrapolo, pick 32 and a fourth rounder from N.E. . S.F. absolutely dont need another 3-4 d.e./u.t. type and the value for q.b isnt there at number 2. I think N.E. mives up to 2 and takes Allen.
I've been on a hiatus with draft work lately and was focused on my Draft Prospect Rankings which you could find in the rants on this site. So, I figured doing one more before the Combine where more prospect movement could occur to see where I stand before and after with those prospects. So, without further adieu here we go!
