Prospect Profile: Lance Moore

Lance Moore School: Toledo
Ht: 5-9.5 Wt: 177 40: 4.51 Year: 4Sr

Bio: Two-year starter and All-Conference selection as a senior after posting 90/1,189/14, also averaging 13.8 yards on 13 punt returns with an additional score and 21.2 yards on 21 kick returns. Led the nation in receptions averaging 8.6 per game as a junior when he posted career numbers of 103/1,194/9. Suffered with a shoulder injury last year.

Positives: Ultra-productive receiver also impacts the game as a return specialist. Slippery ball handler who displays top eye/hand coordination, timing and the ability to adjust running full speed. Consistently finds the open spot in the defense, comes back to the ball and consistently extends to make the reception away from his frame. Boxes out opponents for the catch and adjusts to the errant throw. Displays excellent first step quickness running after the reception or returning punts.

Negatives: Undersized, has difficulty getting off jams at the line of scrimmage or making the tough reception battling bigger opponents. Lacks the flat-out speed to beat opponents downfield. Suffered a shoulder injury late in the year and not able to workout at the combine.

Analysis: A potential fifth receiver at the next level who can be used in the slot or on third down situations, Moore's greatest value in the NFL could be as a return specialist. Needs to display the savvy he continually showed in college and could be tough to keep off a roster come September.
