Rahim Moore
Round 2, Pick 45
Position: S
Class:  3Jr
School: UCLA
Conference: Pac-10
HT: 5-11.5
WT: 202
40 Time: 4.58
Biography: Three-year starter awarded all-American and all-Conference honors the past two seasons. Junior totals included 71/1/4. Sophomore numbers included 49 tackles and a nation-leading 10 interceptions.

Positives: "Opportunistic safety with nice size. Plays faster than his 40 time and displays good range in center field with the ability to get outside the numbers to make plays. Plays with suddenness, flashes on the scene, and is smooth moving around the field. Has an aggressive style, gets up the field quickly and is tough defending the run. Lays his shoulders into ball carriers and has a physical style."

Negatives: "Slow moving in reverse. Is hesitant in coverage at times, falls asleep, and blows assignments. Inefficient, does not take proper angles to the action and gets caught out of position."

Analysis: Moore has been a productive safety the past three years but his statistics are misleading. He's a solid college defender who does not do the little things well. Moore would be best in a zone system but must be protected from the occasional lapse in concentration.

Projection: 3-4
