2002: Became just the second player in school history to post back-to-back 1,000-yard rushing seasons after gaining 1,138 yards on a school-record 288 carries. Also led Tulane in receiving for the second straight season with 52 catches for 545 yards. Caught five or more passes in seven games while passing the 45-yard mark in receiving eight times. Earned second team All-Conference USA honors.
2001: First player in NCAA Division I-A history to rush for over 1,250 yards and catch more than 60 passes in the same season. Broke Tulane's 53-year old record for single-season rushing (1,421) and shattered the school and Conference USA single-season all-purpose yardage marks (2,259), finishing third in the nation in that category. First player in school history to gain 100 yards rushing (131) and 100 yards receiving (130) in the same game (Navy, 11/10/01). Led Tulane in receptions (65) and had a pair of 100-yard receiving games to go with seven 100-yard rushing games. Posted back-to-back 200-yard games, setting the Tulane single-game record while also breaking C-USA and Tulane records for all-purpose yards in a game with 336 (249 rush, 87 receiving). Scored 15 touchdowns (8 rushing and 7 receiving) in 2001 to lead Tulane.
2000: Turned in one of the best rushing seasons in school history and the best-ever by a freshman. Rushing totals were 890 yards on 174 carries. Ranked second in Conference USA in rushing, averaging 89 yards per game. Posted five 100-yard rushing games.
The Good: Smart, instinctive ball carrier with an array of offensive skills. Patient with good vision, quick finding the hole and possesses a burst through the opening with solid first step quickness. Patient, waits for blocks to develop and runs with good lean. Elusive and displays the ability to create or bounce it outside of tackle, avoiding defenders. Outstanding pass catcher with natural, soft hands out of the backfield and a legitimate receiving threat.
The Bad: Not overly aggressive and gives mediocre efforts blocking, getting minimal results. Running lacks strength and doesn't pick up yardage off initial contact. Lacks the pure breakaway speed and ability to run to daylight.
The Skinny: Moore does not project as a feature runner that can take an every-down pounding in the NFL. Rather, he's a back that would thrive in a rotational system or, better yet, as a West Coast type ball carrier thanks to his quickness and pass catching skills.
