Post-Draft Outlook:BEST PICK: Missouri safety William Moore was a projected top-10 pick for the 2008 draft, but elected to return to school. He was slowed by a mid-ankle sprain and his stock dropped. He is a fierce hitter and plays well in coverage. He started his career as a nickel back. A closer look at the Falcons' picks: Round 2/55 -- William Moore, SS, 6-1, 221, Missouri...At this time last year, Moore was projected to be a top-10 pick if he'd entered the 2008 draft. He was slowed by an ankle injury last season and his weight fluctuated. He's known as an intimidator who delivers punishing hits, but the Falcons timed him at 4.45 seconds in the 40-yard dash. "He's a strong safety-slash-free safety. He definitely has the versatility. He is a downhill, blow you up, kind of tackler. He also has range. He's a mid-4-4 guy, so he also has speed. ... This guy definitely brings speed and urgency to our football team." - by The Sports Xchange
