Scouting Report: Hayden Moore, QB, Cincinnati

Clay, AL | 6022 | 205 | 4.78E | 2019

After a fast start as a freshman, he has since failed to progress his overall game. He has been plagued by bouts of inconsistency, combined with poor decision-making and several quarterback competitions—his draft stock has taken a tumble to say the least. The most frustrating aspect of his game is the inability to dissect opposing defenses prior to the snap and make correct adjustments. He has also shown zero sense of urgency during times that require it, such as the two minute-drill before the end of the first half against Michigan in 2017. While he is playing in a faster-paced, more creative offense in 2017 under coordinator Mike Denbrock, he still seems a bit gun-shy to take chances downfield. He should consider himself fortunate to receive a NFL rookie tryout and will need to make the most of his opportunity from there if he wants to stick.
