Projected Round
Four-year starter who played right tackle for three seasons, manning right guard as a junior and earning Third Team All-MAC honors. Named First Team All-MAC after returning to right tackle as a senior.
College left tackle who projects to the right side on Sundays. Powerful, anchors at the point and gets movement run blocking. Starts with a wide base, bends his knees and stays square. Blocks with leverage, displays a good degree of quickness in his game and makes good use of angles. Keeps his feet and hands moving throughout the action, correctly places his hands into opponents and easily anchors at the point of attack. Explosive, nasty and attacks assignments.
Lacks footwork off the edge and overall blocking range. Heavy-footed and slow out to the second level. Struggles redirecting and blocking in motion.
Moton was a terrific college tackle who showed well at the Senior Bowl when he was lined up on the right side. He has the body type and strength to hold down the right tackle spot in a conventional offense on Sundays but must play in a system that does not ask him to cover any amount of area.
