Evaluation notes

Reese Moore is an athletic, high-ceiling offensive tackle prospect who has spent most of his time in high school at tight end and defensive end. Moore owns a terrific frame with ample space to add good weight once he's in a college weight program. Moore has college-ready height and above average length.

Moore is athletic relative to his projected position and should have a lot of potential as a pass-protector. He shows quick, active feet in blocking situations, both in the run game and as a pass-blocker. Moore's athleticism is also evident in his body control and balance, especially when engaged with a defender.

Moving full-time to offensive tackle will present a learning curve from a technique standpoint, while making the jump from relatively small-school football in rural West Texas may present a physical learning curve. As many tall prospects do, Moore can play too high at times. He can also improve his explosiveness and punch at the line of scrimmage. Playing at the Class 4A Division II level, Moore has been able to simply overwhelm most of his matchups with his size and athleticism, so he'll need to learn how to beat opponents of equal or better ability with technique more often.

That said, Moore possesses good physical traits and natural athletic skills to help him develop into a Power Five offensive tackle. - Gabe Brooks
