NFL Events: Draft Player Profiles - Kareem Moore



Kareem Moore (DB)
Height: 5'11"
Weight: 213
College: Nicholls State
Conference: Southland
Hometown: Okolona, MS
High School: Okolona

Pick Analysis: Every year there's one guy that comes out of the Southland Conference and Moore may be that guy this year. He worked out extremely well at his pro day and has strong measurables. He's a safety who runs well and will help fill a void for the Redskins. He is a special teams demon.




Overview
Because he played only one year of high school football, Moore was a relatively unknown prospect when he entered the collegiate ranks in 2003. He originally signed with the University of Mississippi, but after performing on the scout team his first year, the team's Academic Honor Roll selection was hoping to wrest a starting job in 2004. When he was limited to just brief appearances that year, finishing with three tackles, he left the school.

Moore transferred to Itawamba Community College in 2005 and then moved on to McNeese State in 2006. He earned Southland Conference Newcomer of the Year honors as a junior, establishing himself as one of the best free safeties in the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision ranks. He capped his career by winning the league's Defensive Player of the Year Award as a senior.

Moore began his football career late in life, but made a big impact during his senior season at Okolona High School. He was selected to the Class 2A Super 24 team, Northeast

Mississippi Daily Journal All-Area team, Rivals.com Mississippi Top 30 list and named Best Defensive Back in Region 1-2A. He was selected to play in the 2003 Bernard Blackwell Classic, the Mississippi High School All-Star Game.

As a senior, Moore had 38 receptions for 842 yards and eight touchdowns on offense. He also recorded 30 tackles and seven interceptions with three punt returns for touchdowns. He earned three letters in basketball and two in track.

Moore helped lead the basketball team to a 34-5 record and the Class 2A title, as he averaged 15 points, nine rebounds, seven assists, three steals and two blocks. He earned All-State, All-Division and Best Defensive Player honors in basketball. Academically, he was a Physics Award recipient and was named Pizza Hut Student of the Month.

Moore enrolled at Mississippi in 2003, red-shirting on the scout team as a cornerback. He moved to free safety the following year (wore jersey #22), but in 11 games, he came up with only three solo tackles. At Itawamba Community College in 2005, he collected 37 tackles (30 solos) with three pass break-ups while starting seven games at free safety.

Once again on the move, the Southland Conference Newcomer of the Year and All-Southland pick started all 11 games at free safety for Nicholls State in 2006. He ranked third on the team with 68 tackles (35 solos), including a stop for a loss and a forced fumble. He picked off a pass and deflected three others. He also averaged 20.4 yards on seven kickoff returns and 9.1 yards on 10 punt returns.

Moore was an Associated Press All-American second-team, All-Southland Conference first-team and league Player of the Year in 2007. He appeared in 10 games, leading the team with 73 tackles (46 solos), as he had 4.5 stops for losses, a fumble recovery and a forced fumble. He broke up three passes and picked off two others, returning two of those interceptions for touchdowns.

In 21 games at Nicholls State, Moore started 17 contests. He recorded 141 tackles (81 solos) with 5.5 stops for minus-11 yards, two forced fumbles and a fumble recovery. He broke up six passes and intercepted five others for 166 yards in returns (33.2 avg) and two touchdowns. He returned seven kickoffs for 143 yards (20.4 avg) and 10 punts for 91 yards (9.1 avg).

Career Notes Started 25 of 39 games during his entire collegiate career, recording 181 tackles (114 solos) with 5.5 stops for losses, 15 pass deflections, five interceptions, a pair of forced fumbles and a fumble recovery...His 149 yards gained on interception returns in 2007 broke the old school single-season record of 141 yards by Greg Greely in 1981...His 114 yards gained via interceptions vs. Northwestern State in 2007 broke the previous NSU game-record of 94 yards by Aaron Smith vs. Sam Houston State in 1998...His two interceptions for touchdowns vs. Northwestern State in 2007 set a school single-game record and tied both the NSU season and career records.

Junior College At Itawamba CC - As a sophomore he was selected as a JUCO All-American as a defensive back... Led the Indians to the Mississippi Junior College Playoffs in 2005.

Re: Kareem Moore draft profile

Analysis

Positives: Has a shorter than ideal frame, but possesses a wide body with solid muscle tone, a well-developed upper body, good shoulder width and arm muscle definition, wide back and thick calves...Compensates for a lack of explosiveness with good field vision and instincts, as it is rare to see him caught out of position...Tough and physical wrap-up tackler who is a willing supporter vs. the run...Better playing in the zone than in man coverage, as he reads routes well and is always in position to make the play... Shows good ability to close and make tackles in the open field...One of the hardest workers on the team, reminding some of the Rams' Corey Chavous for how quickly he grasps the playbook and has learned the game in such a short time...Plays with good effort and intensity, bringing his arms with force to wrap and secure the ballcarrier on the perimeter, staying low in his pads to take out the opponent's outside leg...Even though he lacks height, he tracks the ball well in flight, showing elevation and extension to high point the pass, secure the ball and elude opponents for additional yardage on the interception runback...Takes good angles and uses his hands effectively to defeat blocks, avoid trash and make the play inside the box...Can impact an opponent with crunching hits and does a good job breaking down in space...Very quick to diagnose the quarterback's moves in the backfield, showing valid instincts and awareness in his charge toward the ball...Takes proper angles in pursuit, sliding down the line while keeping his shoulders square...Has enough agility to get to the flat and has a good feel in his pass drops to gain leverage...Shows sharp ball anticipation skills working in the zone...Has soft, natural hands for the interception...Efficient and disruptive blitzer who will force things to happen when closing on the quarterback.

Negatives: Has adequate timed speed, but lacks explosiveness closing on the ball, as he fails to open his hips (bit stiff) and keep his balance turning and running to the play... Will take wasted steps in transition...Does not play up to his timed speed and was not used often in man coverage as a result...Corrected a bit of a hitch in his backpedal, but would turn smoother if he did not get so high in his stance...Lacks the ideal height you look for in a free safety, but has a thick frame and good power to compensate...Best making plays in front of him, as he needs to gather some when having to recover when a receiver gets behind him...Will lose some jump-ball battles vs. taller receivers because of his height...Has limited experience as a starter (two years) and played against inferior competition.

Compares To: RYAN CLARK-Pittsburgh...While he might not play up to his timed speed, Moore is rarely caught out of position. For a player with his minimal football experience, he shows good read-and-react ability. Like Clark, he is very good at recognizing routes developing. He flashes good pop on contact as a tackler and while he needs to work on his recovery speed and man coverage skills, he is a solid downhill tackler who could contribute immediately in the sub packages.

Injury Report

2007: Left the Nevada game (9/15) and did not play vs. Azusa Pacific (9/22) with an undisclosed injury (not listed on the team injury report, but an internet story listed it as a possible shoulder contusion, but it could not be verified).

Wow, that is a pretty big coincidence, or Snyderatto realized their mistake in cutting Ryan, and tried to find someone like him.

Re: Kareem Moore profile

Does anyone know if Kareem is realted in some way shape or form to Missouri Safety William Moore? I mean they're both psychology majors and Missippi and Missouri are pretty close, not to mention the obvious reason for asking the question, they're last names are the same.

Re: Kareem Moore profile

i love this kid's potential. the worst thing this report says about this kid is that he's kind of short. i won't be surprised to see him overtake doughty at some point during the season.

Like the sound of this guy, smart player that seemed to improve every year.

Will be interesting to see if they try him at FS or SS. W/Landry's speed & good vision, it will be hard to move him back to ss. Of course, he's a beast at either safety spot & much might depend on how much cover 2 blache will use.
