David Moretti

MLB | (0-0, 235) | Oregon
By Pro Football Weekly

Notes: Played at Chabot College (Calif.) in 1999. Came to Oregon in 2000 and saw action in every game. Had seven tackles in 2000, when most of his action came on kick-coverage units. Starting middle linebacker in '01 but did miss one game undergoing surgery to repair a torn ligament in his finger. Recorded 81 tackles, including nine for loss, two sacks, two passes broken up and an interception in '01. Started all 13 games in '02, making 121 tackles, including 9½ for loss, four sacks, two forced fumbles and one recovered fumble.

Positives: Good keying and diagnosing plays. Alert. Good intangibles and work ethic. Smart with good football intelligence. Weight-room warrior. Good scrape and flow linebacker who has been productive. Relentless on the field and in the weight room.

Negatives: Average play strength at the point of attack. Lacks bulk strength and loses leverage. Overruns and falls off some tackles. Average athletic ability and a little stiff in coverage. Has not been able to convert his weight room numbers to the field. Undersized.

Summary: Average size and athletic ability for the next level, but does all the little things that can keep him in the league well.
