Moody was the Lou Groza Award winner in 2021, going 23-of-25 on field goal attempts with a program record 56 extra points made. Moody followed that up with a great 2022, converting a single-season record 29 field goals for the Wolverines.
Moody is set to be the heir apparent to the great Robbie Gould in San Francisco. Moody joins a 49ers team that made the NFC Championship Game a season ago. The Niners will be looking to make another playoff push, and Moody making crucial kicks could be a major component of how far they advance in the postseason.
