Film Study: Tyler Moore

Here is a breakdown of Minnesota's newest commit, Galena Park (TX.) North Shore senior center Tyler Moore

Here is a breakdown of Minnesota's newest commit, Galena Park (TX.) North Shore Tyler Moore. We look at his strengths, weaknesses and overall take

Strengths: At 6-5, 320-pounds, Moore already has the prototypical size in Minnesota's physical and smash-mouth style of offense they like to run. When you watch him, you see he is playing guard, but is projected to play center at the next level. Moore displays great strength and power with his run blocking and pushes his man usually five to ten yards out of the play in every run play. His pass protection is superb as he moves his feet very well for someone his size and stonewalls all defenders that try to pass by him to the quarterback. He dominates his opponent and shows a bit of nasty streak with his physical play. I like his skill set and what he will be bringing to this Gopher squad.

Weaknesses: There is not tons I see with Moore, but the one thing you like to see him improve on is finishing his blocks more often. You would like to see him bury his opponent play in and play out, but at times will just push him out of the way and wait for him to get more. He showed he can pancake his man, but you would like to see him on that on a consistent basis.

Overall Take: Moore was one of the top targets on the board for the Gophers. Minnesota now has five really talented and massive offensive linemen in this class and that should wrap up their offensive line recruiting with the addition of the big Lone Star State center. With his game, it will definitely gel with this run heavy offense the Gophers use and play to his strengths of being a road grader.
