Strong Safety: William Moore (2009-Present)

William Moore may not stand as the most glamorous or the most obvious safety on the All-Time Team, but he would play very well in Cover 2 with Scott Case. Like Case, Willy Mo has great versatility to play in multiple spots in the secondary. He could alter between both strong and free safety positions if need be.

Since coming to Atlanta out of Missouri in the second round of the 2009 NFL Draft, William Moore has been a great player up the middle for the Atlanta Falcons when he is healthy. Willy Mo has played in 75 games, starting 71 over the last seven years.

Moore made a Pro Bowl in 2012 as part of a dynamic safety duo with free safety Thomas DeCoud. He has great ball skills and hits with conviction. While his number aren’t necessarily indicative of his in-game prowess, the Atlanta Falcons’ secondary gets exponentially worse when he is not on the gridiron at strong safety.

William Moore was the staple at strong safety during three of Atlanta’s four playoff years under former head coach Mike Smith. There are possibly better players than William Moore to play safety for the Atlanta Falcons, but his versatility and ability to complement Scott Case in the defensive backfield bodes well for this All-Time team. Playing with Deion Sanders and Rolland Lawrence would give the Falcons four DB’s will great ball skills.
