Draft Diamonds Prospect Interview: Jack Moro, DB, St. Cloud State
The owner of 21 career interceptions, St. Cloud State DB Jack Moro dominated the D2 ranks, and piled up a myriad of honors and awards over his established college career. Though presently overlooked, Moro is looking to change that. He is a “sleeper” whom deserves far more attention than he is getting.
How many teams were recruiting you out of high school?
Almost all D3 schools in Wisconsin, SCSU, UMD, Winona State, and other NSIC schools.
Where did you choose and why?
I chose St. Cloud State University, it was the best fit for me at the time in terms of getting on the field, and it had my major (finance) along with a good business program.
What are your goals for your senior year?
My goal at the beginning of my senior year was to be an All-American again, and to make a difference on the field every game and always hustle.
Have any scouts met with you, and if so what are they saying?
Haven’t talked to any scouts at the time, have had contact with a few agents now, and am working on selecting one.
At your position, what separates you from the others?
My eyes and hands and my film study. I see the whole field well, and put myself in a position to make plays, and having good hands I have more INT’s than I do knockdowns. Studying film is probably one of my biggest assets.
Tell us what you look for when breaking down film?
I look for all the little things, and analyze things before the play starts. Down and distance, which hash they are on, WR splits, formations. By breaking that down, it helps me understand what an offense is going to run.
Who was the toughest player you have ever faced?
Probably my buddy Chase Vogler, used to be the QB for UMD.
If you could compare your play to one person in the NFL who would it be?
What was the biggest obstacle in your life you had to overcome, and how did you overcome it?
I was in a tragic car accident. I overcame it by continuing to do what I love and that is football, and I just got even closer with my family and other families and friends who were there for me. I wont be fully over it until I make it where I want to be, and prove I can do it, the NFL.
What system fits your style of play the best?
I love being a free roamer over the top because I can be all over the field, but I also love to get in the box and help in run support.
What is your biggest strength?
Film study and eyes & hands.
What is your biggest weakness?
Need to get faster, and continue to get better atman to man coverage
If I were a GM and gave you a second to sell yourself, what would you say?
I have the heart, determination, and confidence to prove that I can play this game at the next level.
Who was your favorite team and player in the NFL and why?
Green Bay Packers, I grew up in Wisconsin and loved the packers since I was a little kid. My favorite player, probably Charles Woodson, loved watching that guy play every Sunday.
What was the most tragic event that ever happened in your life and how did you overcome it?
I was in a tragic car accident, I overcame it by continuing to do what I love and that is football, and I just got even closer with my family and other families and friends who were there for me. I wont be fully over it until I make it where I want to be, and prove I can do it, the NFL.
If you were to have dinner with three people dead or alive who would it be?
Jackie Robinson, Will Smith, and my grandfather
With your first paycheck what would you buy?I would start paying back my student loans, and help my parents and family with anything they needed first.
