Injury History. Missed 2019 with a torn ACL

History. Five-star recruit from Bradenton, FL. High decorated player who starred at IMG Academy. Participated in the Under Armour All-America Game, Nike’s The Opening, and the Rival100 Five Star Challenge. Was named 2017 Parade Magazine National Player of the Year.

Strengths. Good athletic profile, even post injury. Good range and pursuit speed. Good feet, to get him out of trouble in the run game, and change directions in coverage. Consistent wrap-up tackler. Good blitzer. Smart player, who was groomed to be a NFL player. Great character and leader.

Weaknesses. Slightly undersized with average length. Can get overwhelmed by big blockers. Thin waist and hips, looks more like a safety. Doesn’t bring a ton of pop. Medicals need to be vetted.

Overview. Undersized read and react linebacker, who needs to clear medical exams to be worth the risk. Moses was looking like a first round pick early on, before suffering a torn ACL in 2019. Although he looked healthy in 2020, he needs to prove he can hold up. He has starter potential, and is pretty scheme diverse.

Evaluation based on. Ole Miss 18′, Ole Miss 20′, Missouri 20′
