Tracy Moore’s best assets, through perception, have always been his size and his hands.

The big-bodied Moore never conjures up the image of a speed-burner. For that, look to Isaiah Anderson, the wide receiver flanking Moore on the opposite side of the field.

Speed, however, can be relative, says Cowboys receivers coach Kasey Dunn.

“Tracyis a big body with good speed,” Dunn said. “He’s fast – not Isaiah Anderson fast – but when you’re 6-2 and 220 pounds and you can move like he moves, it’s really a challenge defensively to try and stop a guy like that.

“You can’t put somebody on him who is undersized, because he’s going to pound right through the guy. And you can’t put somebody on him who is a little bigger, but doesn’t have the foot speed, because then he’ll run by you.

“He’s got a lot of things working for him athletically. And he’s done a nice job. He’s another guy who’s caught everything in camp.”
