Hand usage should improve with time, will allow better tackles to get their punch inside at times to knock him back a bit. Can play high, failing to anchor and getting knocked aside or to the ground by stronger linemen, especially when moving laterally. Still learning to use his flexibility to turn the corner consistently, and needs to use his spin move (and keep his balance during it) to prevent getting taken outside the pocket too often. More of a coordinated and fluid athlete than a downright explosive one. Doesn’t like to hold his ground and set the edge on runs at him, preferring to run himself upfield or dance around the block. A lot of his production and success came from slanting inside, is he a consistent edge threat? Lacks athletic upside.
I like Moore better than Carradine, he is more fluid and has better leverage but his athletic ability is very limited and I think that will compromise him as a player - he looks 100% like a pass rush specialist and not an every down player. Carradine plays very tall and rigid, his leverage is really bad and he tends to make his plays on the 2nd effort after he has been blocked initially, that is not going to be nearly as easy against NFL left tackles who tend to be much quicker than the average left tackle in college.
There are some pretty serious doubts about Moore's motivation and drive, he is rumored to be lazy and not putting in the time in the weight room, the practice field or the video room. I do think Von Miller may be the single best person to have on the team to show Moore how to do things, there is no doubt that Moore looked up to Miller at Texas A&M and I think Miller could push Moore to be his best.
