Doesn’t exhibit a great first step off the snap in the run game either. Has a tendency to allow defenders to get into his frame initially and lacks the type of pad level to get under opposing linemen and consistently drive them off the football. Consistently is just forced to turn defenders from the play on contact and ends up on the ground routinely because of it. Looks athletic enough to get out to the second level in the run game and has average range when asked to pull, but really struggles to break down and consistently hit/seal a moving target.
Impression: Wasn’t the type of in-line run blocker I expected and needs to play in tighter quarters in order to be effective. Doesn’t look like much more than a reserve type in the NFL."
Negatives: Doesn't always breakdown well in space... More of a get in the way type than actual contact maker in space... On the ground a little too much... Struggles to maintain good hand placement, hands get too wide and high... Allows defenders inside his pads and will occasionally lose battle for leverage... Can be walked back into pocket... Not very explosive, doesn't really fire out of his stance."
Moffitt displays average technique with his hands and feet, two key components to maintaining position during pass plays and creating running lanes on run plays. Technique and consistency aren't big problems for NFL scouts as these things can be coached and improved upon.
Currently, there are quite a few quality prospects who can play interior positions in the NFL in this draft. Moffitt loses some of the luster due to playing beside highly-touted offensive tackle prospect Gabe Carimi. These two factors will likely see him slip in the draft a little bit when in another year, he could be a late second round pick.
Wisconsin's John Moffitt currently projects as a third or fourth round pick."
He's projected as a 3rd or 4th Rounder, and I think he offers IMMENSE Value in those rounds. MIND you: Only teams with a Smash Mouth philosophy need apply.
