Fabian Moreau NFL Draft Profile
Size: 6’0 206lbs
- Solid in running game
Analysis: Fabian Moreau was recruited as a running back but transitioned to defense and that move has paid off in spades. He showed off his ability to jam and reroute receivers at Shrine Game practices. Patient from press. Fluid athlete with good lateral quickness and agility to press and match against plus athletes. Maintains good feel for the route as it progresses. Early accelerator with recovery quickness and “makeup” long speed. Good physicality inside the route. Shows enough reactive twitch to challenge slants. Uses size and speed to crowd vertical routes and fight off receivers’ attempts to stack him on their hips. Showed noticeable improvement in confidence and coverage skills from 2014. Has upper body strength to stack and shuck most receivers. Break-down, wrap-up tackler with the build to challenge NFL runners with size.
- Excels in limited coverages
- Average instincts
- Ball production
Analysis: The biggest detractor to Moreau’s draft stock is his limited ability to play in certain coverage schemes. Whatever team that drafts him will need to use a Cover-3 or press man coverage—the two Fabian excels at. His lower body hits pause button giving up some separation when biting into head fake at top of the route. Takes time to gather and redirect when transitioning forward from bail coverage. Instincts and ball production have been marginal. Slow to recognize clearing routes and rarely ejects to overlap back into the play area. Paltry average of just one interception every 63 targets. Slow to find and track the deep throw. Has been tagged with an excessive amount of pass interferences and defensive holding penalties in college.
