Dan Moore Jr. is a well-experienced player as he’s started in 36 of the 43 contests that he’s participated in—that includes 35 straight games. Possessing a top-heavy frame overall, he has the strength necessary in order to latch and sustain when getting his hands on cleanly to defenders, but must gain significant amounts of strength in his lower half. With long arms, adequate grip strength, and an average pass set, he has a solid foundation of traits to continue to build upon. He still needs seasoning in certain areas, but he already has a lot of the ingredients in the cupboard that are waiting to be put to good use. The intensity and awareness are evident as a run blocker, as he displays lots of willingness with sticking on assignments. With average foot speed, his pass sets will need to be tweaked some as he has troubles with ends that are able to quickly win the corner against him by attacking his outside hip. A favorable project for teams that employ a zone-based blocking scheme, Moore is a multi-year experiment that could pay off in the long run with a lot of patience while developing.

Ideal Role: Developmental offensive tackle that will need some time on the practice squad prior to potentially becoming a contributor.

Scheme Fit: Zone blocking scheme.
