Top-ranked safety Rahim Moore, who was once thought of as a first-round pick, has been busy preparing for the upcoming draft. While doing his homework on team needs and where he could end up, Moore appears to be connecting himself to the Dallas Cowboys.
“I hear from the late first round to the 40th pick,” Moore said. “So I think that’s around my range.”
It’s interesting that Moore pointed out the 40th pick, which just happens to be the Cowboys second round selection. The free safety would be an excellent fit for the team at a high position of need.
“I told coach (Brett) Maxie, the (safety/secondary) coach that my uncle one day told me that they needed a safety, and I was surprised because, you know, the Cowboys stay with good defensive backs. So I found that out and I went through the process and found out that their need was safety, so I’d be glad to fill that position,” added Moore.
Moore looks up to Ravens safety Ed Reed. If Reed has any sort of influence on Moore, it would be great for both the young safety and the team who ends up drafting him. Moore has already visited Valley Ranch to meet with the coaches.
“Being here, this is by far my favorite trip,” Moore said. “I just hope this will be my last stop.”
