2011 NFL Draft: Grading the Denver Broncos’ Picks

Denver Drafts UCLA Safety, Rahim Moore with the 45th Overall Pick

To go along side safety Brian Dawkins, Rahim Moore has the potential to start right away and learn from a potential Hall of Famer.

That said, Moore finished his collegiate career with 14 picks, so the pass defense should definitely force more turnovers.

In the Fabulous Forum of the Los Angeles Times, Moore was quoted from an interview with NFL Network:

"Patience is a virtue, I prayed that I would be in the NFL one day. It shows that hard work and dedication pays off. I'm blessed."

Grade of Pick: A
