Evaluation notes

Jordan Moore is a talented, versatile high-major football prospect who does a little bit of everything for a strong Texas small-school football program. Moore plays multiple roles on both sides of the ball and returns kicks. He could play receiver or in the secondary in college, but safety is where we like him best as he projects to the next level.

Moore owns great ball skills and natural football instincts, plus the frame length to add good weight once he's in college. He will need to learn the more technical aspects of playing DB every down -- such as change of direction and backpedal quickness -- but owns the requisite physical tools to make the full-time transition.

Moore is one of the most versatile players in Texas and a quality safety prospect who will play Power Five conference football. - Gabe Brooks
