ESPN Giants reporter Dan Graziano does not believe second-year DE Damontre Moore will be "starter-ready" when the season begins.

The Giants are after defensive ends that can defend the run to bookend Jason Pierre-Paul. Mathias Kiwanuka and Robert Ayers offer more in that regard at this point. Despite his concerns about Moore today, Graziano does believe he could grab a starting spot as the season goes on. Moore is currently recovering from shoulder surgery, but should be ready to go for training camp.

Giants second-year DE Damontre Moore said his surgically repaired shoulder is at 95 percent.

Moore excelled as a special teamer as a rookie but played just 136 defensive snaps. With Justin Tuck in Oakland, the Giants need Moore to make his mark on defense. Moore is questionable for OTAs but should be good to go for training camp.

ESPN.com's Dan Graziano reports the Giants are hoping for a "big leap" from DE Damontre Moore this season.

A 2013 third-round pick, Moore was limited to special teams as a rookie, playing just 136 snaps. With Justin Tuck gone, Moore is the favorite for the Giants' starting left end job opposite Jason Pierre-Paul and has the potential for a breakout year. Moore underwent shoulder surgery in February and is questionable for OTAs.

Giants second-year DE Damontre Moore underwent shoulder surgery after the season.

"It sucked, I couldn't get to sleep. It was horrible," Moore said of the minor offseason procedure. He's yet to be cleared to lift weights, but Moore is staying in shape by doing plenty of cardio. Once he's cleared, Moore wants to pack on 15 pounds of muscle for his sophomore season. The 81st pick in last April's draft could see an increased role if free agent LE Justin Tuck isn't re-signed.

The Giants are grooming third-round pick Damontre Moore to be a hybrid stand-up outside linebacker and down defensive end.

Moore played both 3-4 rush 'backer and 4-3 end at Texas A&M as the Aggies switched schemes during his career. The Giants' current hybrid SLB/DE is Mathias Kiwanuka, though he's moving to end this season. At one point a projected first-round pick, Moore's stock fell due to questionable work ethic.

Giants signed No. 81 pick DE Damontre Moore to a four-year contract.

Although Moore needs work in an NFL weight room, he was a legitimately great college football player, posting eight of his 12.5 sacks against SEC competition last season. As a rookie, he'll be developed as the No. 4 end behind Justin Tuck, Jason Pierre-Paul, and Mathias Kiwanuka. Moore is nearly 6-foot-5 and 250 pounds with long arms. He's a likely nickel rusher at worst by 2014.

Giants selected Texas A&M DE Damontre Moore with the No. 81 overall pick.

Moore (6-foot-4 1/2, 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.

NFL Network's Mike Mayock reports that Texas A&M DE Damontre Moore weighed in at 6-foot-5 and 260 pounds at Friday's Pro Day.

Unfortunately, Moore suffered a hamstring during the workout and couldn't run another forty-yard dash. So he's standing on his 4.95 from the Combine. We wonder if Moore might have run in the 5s at his new, heavier weight. Moore has packed on ten pounds since measuring 6-foot-5, 250 in Indianapolis.
Fri, Mar 8, 2013 10:06:00 PM

Texas A&M DE Damontre Moore managed 19 reps of 225 pounds at the Aggies' Pro Day.

It's seven more than Moore managed at the Combine. The improvement is nice to see, but Moore obviously needs to add upper-body strength. Once considered a possible top-five pick, he now has a late first- to second-round projection.
Fri, Mar 8, 2013 01:18:00 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Texas A&M DE Damontre Moore's poor Combine "validated whispers" among NFL scouts who were all along unimpressed by his athleticism.

Moore's stock is in a bit of a free fall after he managed a slow 4.95 forty-yard dash at 250 pounds, and hoisted just 12 reps on the bench. Moore ranked 22nd-of-37 defensive linemen in the forty, outrunning only DLs who weigh at least 30 pounds more than him. Once viewed as a possible top-five selection, Moore is really more of a late first-round and possible second-round pick.

Texas A&M DE Damontre Moore managed a forty time of 4.95 at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Moore did better in the broad jump (10-foot-2) and vertical leap (35 1/2 inches), but the forty time is slow for an undersized, 250-pound defensive end. Moore did not help his stock in Indianapolis, failing to quash concerns about his explosive ability or lack thereof. He projects as a middle to late first-rounder.

One NFL scout told Pro Football Weekly that Texas A&M DE Damontre Moore is a "mess off the field."

Moore was arrested for marijuana possession in 2011, but other than that has no known off-the-field issues. Perhaps more concerning were Moore's 12 reps on the 225-pound bench press in Indianapolis. The low total is an indication of not only below-average strength in the upper body, but suspect work ethic.
Mon, Feb 25, 2013 12:19:00 AM

Texas A&M DE Damontre Moore measured 6-foot-4 1/2 and 250 pounds at Saturday's NFL Combine weigh-in.

He's actually a half-inch taller than Texas A&M listed him, which is a nice little plus. Although highly productive in the Big 12, some league evaluators are concerned about Moore's off-the-snap explosion because he's not necessarily a great quick-twitch athlete. He's still very likely to be a day-one pick, perhaps top 15.
