Scouting Report/Player Notes
Moore has emerged as one of the nation’s top defensive end/linebacker hybrid players. Through the team’s first six games, he leads the Aggies with 52 tackles, 15 tackles for loss, and 8.5 sacks. He’s having a dominant junior season, and could be a clear candidate to leave early and be one of the top pass rushers selected in 2013. Moore broke out in his sophomore season with 72 tackles, 17.5 tackles for loss, and 8.5 sacks supplemented by four forced fumbles and has followed that campaign up beautifully. Gets good burst off the snap and is obviously wildly productive. From what I’ve seen of him, he is a very aggressive player who can get sucked in at times, and needs to work on play recognition, but he has great natural abilities to get into the offensive backfield. Really good closing speed and wrap up ability. He has all of the tools you look for to be a first round selection.
