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.
@Black&Gold With Bryant it's up to him to figure it out for himself. Coates has been hurt for half the season and let Ben work with him in the offseason and you will see how much of a difference he can make. Rogers can play the slot and Hamilton can be a No.4 guy who gets maybe 10-15 catches for the year which isn't bad. DHB is another solid option at the 5 spot so there WR core is full can't add another without dropping 1 and as far as TE goes you fans are like kids in a candy store who eat every single piece and then get sick later, the Steelers proved that they don't need a big TE threat like the Pats to score points. Besides if you add a freak TE then your adding another guy who needs the ball and how can you expect Ben to keep all of those guys happy without ticking off someone else? James and Grimble don't scare a whole lot of teams but that's the beauty of it they will strike when you least expect it and that's a more dangerous weapon than having a freak TE.
