Overview:

Rahim Moore is this years #1 safety and he’s an absolute ball hawk. Moore is great in coverage and possess good range. He didn’t get 10 picks in one season by accident. While he is outstanding in coverage, he’s shaky in run support. He takes bad angles, misses tackles and struggles to get off blocks. He’s not bad overall in run support but he certainly could be better. For a team that is in need of a FS he’s worth a late 1st round pick.
