Patriots Scouting Possible Safety Conversion

Adrian Moten Patriots

Adrian Moten delivers a blow against Virginia last season.

According to Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post, Maryland linebacker Adrian Moten has conducted a private workout with the New England Patriots.

At just 6’2″ and 234 pounds, some feel that Moten might be a better fit as a strong safety in some defensive schemes, including that of New England. Moten totaled three sacks and nearly 80 tackles playing linebacker last year.

Moten showed defensive back speed at his Pro Day, running a 4.49. He also showed off a 32.5″ vertical leap. As a senior, Moten totaled four interceptions and ten passes defensed, showing off his coverage ability.

Special teams would also be a place that Moten could excel.

    Safety? Haven’t seem him ever play safety, and I don’t think he’d be a safety in the NFL considering he hasn’t played it since high school. Probably a WLB in a 4-3 or special teams player.
