Broncos 2011 second-rounder Rahim Moore has looked good in training camp in the battle to start at safety with Mike Adams, we hear. His competition, Quinton Carter, has been out with hamstring and knee injuries, also helping Moore’s cause. 

The first safety taken in the 2011 draft, Moore didn’t live up to expectations, and one source believes that he wasn’t the same after a preseason hit on Bills WR Donald Jones that cost the rookie $20,000. Coming out of college, Moore showed strong ball skills but there were questions about his tackling and physicality, and that seemed to show in 2011.

Moore told reporters on Monday what he learned from watching tape. “When you’re a rookie, you’re trying to make some plays. You want to get respect,” he said. “Sometimes you’re just so fast for your own good and that’s when disciplinary issues come in. Missed tackles come in, missed opportunities, missed picks.”

Reports indicate that Moore’s improvement in his first full offseason has given him an edge for the starting job.
