Moore came to Stanford with the hopes of playing both football and basketball. He did both as a freshman, but once his sophomore season came around he realized his future was on the gridiron. As a sophomore, he hauled in 39 receptions for 616 yards and six touchdowns. In the first game of the 2005 season, he dislocated his hip after catching three passes for 66 yards and a touchdown and missed the rest of the year. He returned a year later, but this time was hindered by a stress fracture in his right foot and he managed to catch just 14 passes for 242 yards and three touchdowns. Moore closed out his Cardinal career with a solid season, hauling in 39 passes for 481 yards and a touchdown.
Moore has an excellent combination of talent. He has an excellent frame, with the potential to get even bigger. He is also an excellent athlete, and knows how to use the combination of size and athleticism to go up and get the football. He has the potential to be a real difference maker as a receiver from the tight end position.
All the potential in Moore’s game dates back to the talented he displayed as a sophomore. Injuries have slowed him the past two seasons. Durability has to be an issue with him being hindered for much of those two seasons. He also is a receiver for the Cardinal, and will definitely be playing tight end in the NFL. He will need to learn how to block players considerably bigger than him to develop into an all around threat.
Moore’s game and draft ranking are all on potential. He had a solid year to re-establish himself as a prospect. As long as he can stay healthy, he is a player to keep an eye on because he creates a mismatch no matter who is lined up against him.
