HBCU NFL Draft Prospect: Larrone Moore, WR/RS, Delaware St

Larrone Moore was a game breaking wide receiver and kick returner for Delaware State. He was also the top sprinter on Delaware State’s indoor and outdoor track & field teams. He is an explosive skill player who always produces whenever the ball is in his hands. He does a good job with nicely settling into the open spot on the field and making himself an available target. Gets vertical and adjusts nicely to the ball in the air on errant throws. He also has a good feel when setting up the screen plays and getting underneath. Moore impressed NFL scouts during the HBCU Bowll All-Star week with his skills running after the catch and also his great speed and quickness in the return game. Moore plays tough and battles opponents to come away with the ball and also shows a burst of speed and keeps his feet moving on contact. He is an elusive return specialist displaying the ability to make people miss, finding the open lanes and quickly get through them. At the HBCU Bowl combine in December, he ran in the low-mid 4.4's and ran the second fastest 20 yard shuttle time of 4.18. Moore needs to learn to use his great speed and improve route precision. He also has a tendancy to body catch on some passes and needs to consistantly catch the ball with his hands. Moore ran in the low-mid 4.3's at his recent pro day last week and also showcased a 10'4 broad jump. He has peaked the interested of some NFL teams with up coming scheduled private workouts for the Indianapolis Colts and Jacksonville Jaguars this month. Overall, Larrone Moore is a decent size receiver at 6'0'' 196 lbs and offers potential as a third/fourth receiver and return specialist for the next level. He will need to impress in the return game in training camp to increase his chance to make an NFL roster.
