Jason Moore is a big kid that can be very disruptive in the backfield. He has great size, incredible strength and is already built for the college game. He gets through double teams easily and can collapse the pocket when he is single blocked by a running back or offensive lineman. He finds the ball carrier on both runs and passes and displays good instincts for stopping plays behind the line of scrimmage.
