Default Poll: Is Mewelde Moore a Lock for the 53 man roster?

Assuming there are no camp injuries, do you think Moore makes the roster?

Default Re: Poll: Is Mewelde Moore a Lock for the 53 man roster?

IMO he should have a tough fight to make the team but Tomlin seems to trust him in clutch situations so I think he makes it.

Personally , I think his historic value was being able to catch the ball when Mendy was injured and Parker was the feature. Mendenhall can catch as well IMO and I think some of the others can as well.

Last season Mendenhall stayed in there on 3rd down, which was Moore's primary role previously.

Competition is for 3 backup RB spots as I see it assuming we carry 1 FB / emergency RB

Tank Summers: From film we know he can catch. Didn't come out of the gate strong last year. Should be able to block. Might be that FB player. ST play to be determined.

Vincent: Last hurrah for nothing special. Poor skill level. Good blocking size.

Redman: Could contend with a year of pro level conditioning. Not so speedy and not sure on his hands. I would expect he'd be a good blocker. ST play to be determined. No big plays...other than short yardage touchdowns.

Dwyer: All reports positive to this point. Could be a total package. Has the speed. Should have the Size to be a good blocker. ST play to be determined.

Logan: Faster and more skilled than Moore. Presumably less effective up the middle. Presumably not a great blocker although with his agility he could be in good position to block. ST contriubutor in all phases. Huge big play ability. Can play WR in a pinch.

Moore: Average speed and toughness- no big play ability. Good hands. Good utility player. Can play ST and serve as a returner.

I'd love to see the team take some risks and cut Moore loose.

Starter: Mendenhall
Backup: Dywer
Short Yardage: Redman
Special pkg / long 3rd / KR: Logan

FB: Winner between Taylor, Summers, Mchugh, Johnson. (Maybe one of the H-back guys gets turned into a FB full-time)

I believe him to a sure thing. He's been reliable and a great back out of the backfield when we need that swing pass, or a screen, or some other service.

Mewelde Moore is a fantastic 3rd down back and can handle a few extra carries per game. He single handedly got us going in the first baltimore game back in 2008. I feel lucky to have him.

Unless I'm mistaken, Logan (IF he makes the roster) makes the roster as a WR/KR.

I'll bet anyone here M. Moore is on the active roster week 1.

Hey Steely, nice poll

IMHO Mewelde will make the 53 roster, he is reliable and Tomlin likes him. Glad to know there will be a nice competition for # 3 spot .... and .... who knows, maybe a FB if they really decide to have one
