Giants selected Texas A&M DE Damontre Moore with the No. 81 overall pick.
Moore (6-5, 250) terrorized the SEC en route to 21 tackles for loss, 12.5 sacks, a forced fumble, and two kick blocks in 2012. He led the Aggies in tackles (85), impressive for a defensive lineman. Unfortunately, Moore lacks marquee athleticism and explosion, and was exposed at the Combine with a 4.95 forty. He also managed just 12 bench-press reps, suggesting Moore has lots of work to do in the weight room. He does play relentlessly and showed "Joker" traits in college, rushing productively off the edge, to the inside, and as a stand-up outside 'backer. Moore was once considered a top-ten pick. He'll be a rotational rusher behind starters Justin Tuck and Jason Pierre-Paul. Fri, Apr 26, 2013 09:41:00 PM

Texas A&M pass rusher Damontre Moore has already completed an in-house visit with the Ravens.

Moore will hopefully complete a healthy forty yard dash at the Cowboys' local pro day workout. The Aggie has experience as a pass rushing linebacker and down defensive end and wins with a solid motor to chase down ball carriers. He's admitted to a poor work ethic off the field, but Moore would be wise to maximize his hand use and length.

Scouts Inc.'s Kevin Weidl believes Texas A&M DE Damontre Moore is a third day player.

"Not high on Damontre Moore," Jeremiah tweeted. "Pedestrian hands, limited flexibility and lacks explosive snap. Does not win enough 1 on 1's for me." When asked why Moore was once considered an early first rounder, Weidl answered "production and hype during the season. Post season when scouts start really digging into tape is when it sorts itself out."

Draft Insider Tony Pauline tweets that Texas A&M OLB Damontre Moore could run the 40-yard dash again.

Moore chose not to do the 40 at his pro day, which was a surprise to many. Instead, he focused on the bench press and appears to have plans to run the 40 again at a later date. At the combine, he ran a 4.95, which was a significant help to his sliding stock. He'll have to improve on that at the 40 time to show he's willing to work hard.

Texas A&M DE Damontre Moore recorded 19 reps on the bench press during the school's pro day on Friday.

He registered 12 reps in Indy and stood on his Combine forty time of 4.95. Moore also weighed in at 260 pounds, 10 pounds heavier than at the NFL Combine. One notable name on hand at the workout is Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer, who might be looking for a pass rusher if Michael Johnson leaves in free agency.

Texas A&M DE Damontre Moore will be mentored by Von Miller leading up to the 2013 season, according to NFL.com's Gil Brandt.

"The two are close" and "grew up in (the) same town," per Brandt. He adds that it won't help for Moore's March 8 Pro Day, but should help on team visits. Moore doesn't possess the same natural athleticism but wins with a great motor.

Texas A&M DE Damontre Moore did not interview well at the NFL Combine, according to NFL Draft legend Gil Brandt.

Obviously Moore's workout was less than impressive, and the combination of the two forced Brandt to leave the Aggie off of his most recent mock. Moore has a great motor on the field, but he certainly isn't winning the pre-draft process.

Texas A&M DE Damontre Moore's poor Combine performance validated some whispers league-wide, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

When asked if Moore's effort in Indy hurt his stock, Schefter answered, "Before Moore even worked out for teams, I had somebody tell me to watch out for him, that they were not as impressed as some of the other scouts. So his performance there only validated some of the whispers." Schefter added that Moore can improve on his performance at Texas A&M's Pro Day, but a first-round selection is far from a sure thing.

ESPN's Mel Kiper has removed Texas A&M DE Damontre Moore from his top-25 Big Board.

Just a month ago, Moore was Kiper's third overall prospect. His new top five includes Georgia's Jarvis Jones, Florida's Sharrif Floyd, Central Michigan's Eric Fisher, Oregon's Dion Jordan, and Texas A&M's Luke Joeckel. Moore's Combine performance certainly didn't show athletic upside, but his tape hasn't changed since first being ranked on the board.

Texas A&M Pass rusher Damontre Moore arrived in Indianapolis weighing 250 pounds at 6'4 and 1/2 inches.

Moore will likely draw interest at outside linebacker and defensive end. It remains to be seen what numbers Moore will put up, but most of all he needs to work on his counter moves in terms of footwork and hand use.

Draft insider Tony Pauline ranks Texas A&M DE/OLB Damontre Moore as the No. 1 overall player in the 2013 Draft.

Moore is followed by Utah's Star Lotulelei, Florida State's Bjoern Werner, Texas A&M's Luke Joeckel, and Alabama's Chance Warmack. This class continues to polarize opinions on the top five players, and even number one overall.

Jacksonville Jaguars GM David Caldwell noted his team will be drafting more big conference players because it is the "norm".

"I always believe in drafting and acquiring toward what the norms are," he said. "If 93 percent of the players in the NFL are playing at Division I-A programs, that’s the norm. I’m not saying I would never draft a small-school player, but they would have to dominate that level."

The National Football Post's Russ Lande has not spoken to an NFL scout who grades Texas A&M DE Damontre Moore in the first-round.

Lande himself gave Moore a second-round grade. After generating a lot of attention during the 2012 season and after declaring, Moore's evaluation appears to have lost steam in the eyes of a few scouts. We love his motor and the versatility he showed at defensive end and pass rushing linebacker, but Moore needs to use his hands and angles better.

Yahoo! Sports' Doug Farrar believes Texas A&M DE/OLB Damontre Moore "could be the next Aldon Smith."

Farrar lists Moore as the sixth overall player on his pre-Combine board, but notes the ranking has a lot to do with potential. Moore is "Very strong for his size (6-foot-4, 250) and can use impressive speed to get to the quarterback, but needs a bigger palette of hand and foot moves before he'll be a top-level pass-rusher in the NFL," Farrar writes. "However, the trend toward looping inside rushers (Clay Matthews, Smith, Bruce Irvin) favors Moore more than most."

Texas A&M DE Damontre Moore is not an elite prospect, according to CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

"Moore is a talented rusher with a relentless motor, but still needs a lot of work as a hand-on-ground defensive end," Brugler writes. The Aggie has experience as a pass rushing linebacker and defensive end in a four man front, so that tape versatility will help evaluators decide which position he fits best.
