From the get go in college, Moore showed true potential. As a back-up freshman in the Joker position to Denver Broncos Pro Bowler Von Miller, he recorded 40 tackles 5.5 sacks and an interception while forcing 3 fumbles. He continued on an upward curve, starting in 2011 and recording 72 tackles in just 10 games along with 8.5 sacks and 4 forced fumbles and by the time he reached junior year and moved into DE he was ready to put a first team All-American performance on. With 80 tackles, 12.5 sacks, 8 hurries and 2 blocked kicks on Special Teams, it was clear that Moore would be a first rounder whether he waited until after senior year or not.

What they’re saying
Moore impressed last year, but really shined this year, as he tallied 12.5 sacks and 20 tackles for loss. He also led the Aggies in total tackles with 80. This tackle number doesn’t come as a major surprise to me after watching him, because one of the things that stands out most about Moore is the fact that his motor is constantly running. He consistently shows open field range, and max effort in pursuit – Andrew Parsons.
Moore has a great frame with room to add more bulk, and a flexible torso that allows him to bend the edge, he is solid versus the run, shows very good versatility potential at the next level, and has top-line pass-rushing ability. He keeps offensive linemen guessing because he can win with quickness or power, and he has the closing burst and long arms to take down opposing QBs. – TTodd McShay
