Jarvis Moss, DE, Florida

Jarvis Moss spent most of his first two years at Florida battling injuries and medical problems. He didn't get an opportunity to start for Florida until 2005 and was highly effective; however, his junior season (2006) his stock began to soar. Moss has a tremendous upside and playmaker potential as a pass rusher off the edge. He displays a quick burst off the edge, which allows him to set up wide of the tackle and easily shed the block to disrupt the quarterback. His quickness and agility allows him to slide down the line of scrimmage in pursuit of the ball carrier. Moss has the ability to drop into coverage based in athleticism and natural instincts. He will clearly need to bulk up to compete as an every down defensive end at the next level. Moss also lacks the upper body strength of most defensive linemen, thus often has difficulty shedding offensive linemen once engaged. He needs to develop additional pass rushing moves and avoid his dependency to beat his opponents on sheer speed alone. Moss is probably better suited to move to outside linebacker in a 3-4 scheme to showcase his athleticism and playmaking abilities. Moss's stock is extremely high at this point after a sensational performance in the National Championship game, which should place him in the first round. Moss could go as high as a mid first round pick, but should definitely be gone by the second round.
