Biography: Four-year starter awarded all-conference and All-American honors since his freshman season. Mountain West Offensive Player of the Year in 2011 after being named WAC Offensive Player of the Year in 2010. Passing totals last season included 74.3%/3800 yards/43 TDs /9 interceptions after he had 71.3%/3845/35/6 as a junior. Passed for at least 3400 yards each season in college also registering at least 25 touchdown throws during every campaign.
Positives: Productive high-percentage thrower on the college level who lacks the physical skills for the NFL. Patient in the pocket, buys as much time as necessary for receivers and waits until the last moment before releasing the ball. Displays a terrific feel for the game, effectively leads the offense and knows where his receivers are on the field. Senses pressure, steps up to avoid it and always finds the open wideout on the field. Possesses a sense of timing on throws, accurate with passes and always gives receivers a chance to make the reception. Throws a catchable ball putting short and intermediate passes where only his receivers can make the reception.
Negatives: Has a short throwing motion and looks like he's pushing the ball. Passes have minimal speed. Lacks a quick release and the ability to immediately get the ball out of his hands. Takes chances on occasion trying to get the ball through tight spots, yet lacks the arm strength to do as much.
Analysis: Moore was a winner on the college level and a tremendous leader on the field who did the little things well. He lacks the size, arm strength and physical skills to start in the NFL yet could effectively be a backup in a West Coast offense.
