Kaden Moore
Offensive Line
Freedom High School, Bethlehem, PA
6-3, 305

247: 3-star, No. 90 OT, No. 13 player in PA
Rivals: 2-star
ESPN: 3-star, No. 160 OG, No. 28 player in PA

Opinions are a bit mixed on Kaden Moore.  There are differences of opinions on both his ability and his position at the college level.  247 and Rivals both list him as an offensive tackle, though 247 is much higher on his ability, ranking him as the No. 13 player in Pennsylvania.  ESPN splits the difference between 247 and Rivals, and they list him as an offensive guard, which I believe is more likely than offensive tackle.

On many occasions players are a half-an-inch to an inch shorter than their listed height, so it seems unlikely that Moore will play offensive tackle.  Offensive guard, or perhaps even center, seem much more likely destinations for a player with his height and his frame.

One thing I do know about Moore is that he’s got a strong lower body, though not quite as strong as some claim.  There’s a Twitter video of him squatting 615 pounds, but even a novice weight lifter can watch that video and see that Moore doesn’t get parallel
