defensive end, Texas A&M
Let’s face it—the Steelers defense needs to get younger, and it needs to get younger fast. Moore, one of the few players in this Mock Draft who had a disappointing week in Indianapolis, could now slip all the way to 17. I had him in the Top 10 for most of the pre-Combine period (and 12 to Miami in my latest Mock Draft).
He managed just 12 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press at the Combine, with a 4.95-second 40-yard dash to boot. That’s not good. Despite an outstanding breakout 2012 in which he garnered comparisons to his ex-college teammate Von Miller, Moore needs a big performance at his Pro Day to assure teams that Indianapolis was a fluke. Twelve reps of 225 pounds just isn’t going to cut it. But man, some of his 2011 and 2012 film is outstanding.
