UDFA Scouting Report: Dante Moses, OL, Adams State

  • Dante Moses, OT/LS, Adams State
  • Class: 2013 (Free Agent)
  • Height: 6’3”
  • Weight: 330 lbs.
  • Hometown: Houston, TX

Strengths: Moses is an offensive lineman who has pro size to be looked at as a Guard.  He has a decent first step at the snap of the ball while maintaining okay body control.  On running plays, he shows strong hands, strength, and technique to neutralize his defender, and shows the ability to pull on sweeps.  In pass protection, he can pick up stunts as a Guard, and mirror a pass rusher as a Right Tackle, keeping him away from the QB.  He blocks with a mean streak who looks to take a defender to the ground on every play.  He is versatile enough to be used as a Center, Guard, or Tackle.

Weaknesses: Moses doesn’t have the foot quickness that coaches typically look for in a Tackle.  While blocking, he tends to play with a high pad level, causing him to not have much bend in his hips.  His hand placement can be approved on as he tends to grab onto a player’s outside frame instead of the inside.  His ability to handle speed rushers is a question as he tended to line up against pass rushers with power moves a majority of the time on film.  His level of competition will be looked at closely as well.

Summary: Moses played a large part on the offensive line for the Adams State University Grizzlies at the Division II level.  He lined up at every position on the offensive line, including being a long snapper.  While versatile, he has the size to be considered as a Guard at the pro level.  With a decent first step & body control, he plays with a mean streak on every snap.  He has strong hands, strength, and technique to be effective in the running game despite his hand placement not always being great.  He’s athletic enough to pull on outside runs while playing with a high pad level & little bend in his hips.  Mirroring his defender in pass protection is a plus, while his ability to handle speed rushers is a question.  With the right coaching, Moses can develop into a good offensive lineman who could become a starter for a team down the road.
