Is a natural plucker of the football who extends his arms well away from his frame and can secure the catch. Displays an impressive initial burst once he catches the ball and can initially separate from corners with the ball in his hands. Works hard after the catch and can be a load to bring down. However, isn't a real polished receiver at this stage.
Lacks ideal balance, gets leggy out of his breaks and is more of a linear athlete/route runner. Has some start and stop ability when asked to drive defenders up the field and quickly sit down underneath. But, really struggles to generate separation on any sharply breaking route.
Is at his best running down the field on vertical routes, putting his foot in the ground and using his big frame to box out a corner and go block the football. However, he isn't overly impressive in jump ball situations. Lacks ideal balance and seems to struggle to set his feet and go up and pluck the throw at its highest point.
He also has some injury concerns, which has stunted his growth a bit up until this point. Missed the 2009 season with a bulging disc in his back
Impression: A big, talented kid who can pluck the football. But, hasn't taken that next step yet and even if he does in 2010, I still don't see him as anything more than depth on a team's wide receiving corps."
Positive: Relatively creative runner who's never lived up to expectations. Quick footed, elusive, and displays the ability to sidestep defenders. Makes opponents miss in the open field. Reads the blitz and picks up blocking assignments, squaring into defenders. Solid receiver out of the backfield who adjusts to the errant throw and extends to make the catch away from his frame.
Negative: More quick than fast. Marginally productive throughout his college career.
Analysis: Moody was a highly rated prospect who had an impressive freshman season at USC before watching his career level off. He has enough skill to be a situational ball carrier/third-down back at the next level but must really elevate his game in camp this summer."
