Bottom Line on Briley Moore

Moore is a versatile tight end who can play in different situations. His physical, all-out aggressive blocking style mixed with his good receiving ability makes him a very notable prospect. The past history of injuries for Moore will be a concern, as his style doesn’t guarantee a decently healthy career. However,  Moore will provide teams with good late-round value and a workhorse-type player who can be a serviceable #3 option in the future.
