Does he have prototype size? What is body type? What is growth potential?

Adequate height and limited weight. Above the line arm length/ wingspan. Average frame with wide shoulders that thins at the chest and torso but could add weight well if requested. Limited lower body thickness. Limited durability, suffered from season-ending injuries in 2016, 2019, and 2020.

Athleticism

Does he have the athletic traits you want?

Average overall AA. Even with average speed and limited COD, has just enough length to survive in Curl/Hook zones. Average explosiveness, combined with adequate body control and overall bend allow him to flexibly get around the corner. Limited play strength, will consistently be overwhelmed vs. Run and Pass.

Technical

Does he have a refined skill set? Is he a projection or is his game developed enough to contribute early?

Adequate get-off and upfield burst vs. Pass, can get to the edge of slower OTs and bend around the corner. Previously a linebacker, he lacks seasoned pass rush moves and displays a poor overall ability to get to the QB. Poor overall UOH in the pass rush, has adequate hand speed, but deficient in placement, timing and power, will often resort to flailing at the OT in an attempt to generate separation. Average edge rush with adequate closing speed is his only legitimate route to get to the quarterback, with the only alternative being a limited spin move that still needs refinement. Adequate open field tackler, has adequate acceleration, twitch/suddenness, and play temperament to close in on the ballcarrier, and adequate wrap technique to finish the job. Limited run defender. Limited force at the POA vs. Zone and poor vs. Gap. Limited play strength and poor UOH in the run game; together, they prevent his above the line arm length factoring-in at the POA, in edge blocker control, and in his ability to disengage.

Summary

What role does he play? What is his initial projection?
Jeremiah Moon is a Graduate Redshirt Senior at Florida who has featured in 46 career games. Legs were bow-legged as an infant which forced him to wear metal leg braces for over a year. Went on to have a solid high school career and became a four-star EDGE prospect ranked No.307 nationally in 2016 by 247 Sports. When healthy, featured as a rotational LB/EDGE for most of his 6-year career. His best season came in 2019 with 7 TFLs and 3 sacks, but alike 2016 and 2020 that campaign ended with a season-ending injury. Durability is a serious concern due to the injury history and his average frame. Given that plus his age, it's likely Moon won't develop into a base starter for most NFL defenses. He projects best as a reserve 34 outside linebacker in a zone-blitz scheme that can best utilize his length, closing speed and open field tackling. Should also become an adequate special teamer, particularly on the Punt and Kick Coverage units.
