Akeem Ayers, Rahim Moore deliver at UCLA’s pro day

Published on March 30, 2011 by     Seahawk Fanatic

UCLA’s pro day on Tuesday provided LB Akeem Ayers and FS Rahim Moore with an opportunity to solidify their status as potential top-40 picks, and the duo delivered solid performances.

Ayers, in particular, had a strong showing in front of a large contingent of representatives from 27 NFL teams. He posted times in the 4.68 to 4.74-second range in the 40-yard dash while weighing in at 259 pounds.

He took part in positional drills as both a defensive end and linebacker, and displayed good skills at each spot. Although Ayers isn’t an explosive athlete, he is smooth and fluid in his movements and shows good body control while turning the corner. His bend and burst stood out, and he has enough ability to be a credible threat off the edge on the next level.

Ayers also displayed enough athleticism to show he can drop into coverage on a regular basis. His agility and movement skills are impressive enough that he could be used as an outside linebacker in a 4-3 or 3-4 scheme.

Moore opted to run the short shuttle (4.16 seconds) and long shuttle (11.47) before going through an extensive positional workout. He showed excellent footwork, movement skills and quickness while going through drills headed by Bears’ defensive assistant Gil Byrd.

Moore moves effortlessly in his turns and transitions, and he flashed excellent ball skills and hands. He looks like a true centerfield-type safety with the skills to develop into a ball hawk at the next level. The only concern that surfaced was a lack of conditioning that resulted in Moore cutting the workout short. Otherwise, he solidified his status as a top-50 selection.
