Rahim Moore at the Combine [Updated]
Rahim Moore run an impressive 4.53 second 40 Tuesday morning, and 4.61 in his second attempt. The first mark is very good for a safety, and a shade faster than he was expected to run.
Moore posted a solid all-around performance at the combine receiving compliments from Deion Sanders on NFL Network during position drills. Other numbers included 11 reps on the bench press, 9’7” broad jump, and a 35” vertical leap. Moore is widely considered the top safety among a weak crop at the position, and he likely solidified that position with a strong showing at the combine.

Akeem Ayers Runs Slower than Expected
Akeem Ayers ran two disappointing times Monday at the Scouting Combine clocking in at 4.80 and 4.83. UCLA fans know Ayers as an explosive athlete, and those two times do not back up what we saw on the field. The disappointing performance likely pushes Ayers back towards the end of the first round for now. Last year UCLA’s pro day was at the end of March. That will give him another opportunity to run a faster time.
