2010 Scouting Report Presented by Comcast: Michael Moore, WR, Georgia

This scouting report is presented by Comcast

Next up on the list of guys that the Jaguars have reportedly shown interest in is an SEC product that some of you may know. With the large turnover at the wide receiver position last offseason, the position formerly considered to be a weakness of the franchise is now arguably a strength. With young talents in Mike Sims-Walker, Mike Thomas, Jarett Dillard, Nate Hughes, Tiquan Underwood and Troy Williamson recovering from injury, a rookie wide receiver will have a difficult time making the Jaguars roster. 

Nevertheless, has singled out the Jaguars as the team showing the most interest in the relatively unknown Georgia wide receiver, Michael Moore. 

Although Moore didn't receive an invite to the combine, he impressed at the Georgia pro day putting up stellar numbers in the workouts and doing very well in drills. With a 40 time at 4.48, Moore isn't a burner, but he has the speed to be an NFL receiver and his time would've placed him in 10th at the combine among receivers. At the bench press Moore opened eyes with 22 reps that would've placed him in 1st at the combine over Arrelious Benn, Donald Jones and Scott Long who all put up 20 reps. The impressive pro day continued on the field where reports, "Moore ran good routes and had a terrific pass catching workout."

So why does a player that has good size, runs good routes, catches the ball well, runs fast enough, is strong enough and has a NFL caliber vertical jump project as a player that will go undrafted? As a senior, Moore got the opportunity to finally be the starting receiver after some veteran receivers graduated and he was hoped to be a player that could take double coverages away from the star receiver opposite him, A.J. Green. Long story short, Moore disappointed and in 11 games played caught only 25 passes for 249 yards and 5 touchdowns. The reason for the disappearance during his senior season can be partially placed on the turnover from Matthew Stafford to new starter, Joe Cox. The stats of almost receiver on the Georgia roster went down from the year prior which is a rarity at the college level that usually sees growth from year to year among players. 

Moore has the physical skills to develop into a special player and the price that it will cost to get Mike Moore into the Jaguars training camp and compete for a roster spot will likely be cheap.
