Rookie safety ready to contribute for Falcons

William Moore has a reputation as a ferocious hitter on the football field. He's intense, almost frighteningly so. It's one of the reasons the Atlanta Falcons picked him in the second round of April's NFL draft. But off the field, Moore says he's "just the average guy you see at the grocery store."
