2011 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Rahim Moore, FS, UCLA
The accolades continued heading into 2010. However, Moore would have a bigger challenge on his hands as the UCLA defense was decimated by graduation. Moore has become a leader on the field and through seven games ranks third on the team in tackles and has one of the team's three interceptions so far in the season. The absence of a consistent pass rush has certainly diminished Moore's effectiveness this year. He has even practiced some at the corner position due to a lack of other options.
Moore has enough size and strength to play safety in the NFL, but his ability to also play corner is not a bad thing. If things keep going as they are, Moore's stock will likely drop a little bit, but he will be good in preseason workouts and should sneak into the first round if he opts to go pro early.
3/15 Update: Moore's stock is holding pretty steady as a second round selection. He was fast and athletic at the NFL combine as everybody expected. The problem remains his inconsistent tackling. That is why many consider him a better corner than safety, but he may have trouble making that switch anyway. Making a switch to corner could take some time and probably more time than an NFL team is willing to take with a second round pick. Moore is still the best free safety in this draft class and should be taken in the second round.
