04/28/13 - A closer look at the Giants' picks: Round 3/81 - Damontre Moore, DE, 6-5, 250, Texas A&M ... Productive college pass rusher with impressive sack totals. However at just 20 years old, his preparation and work ethic is in need of refinement. - The Sports Xchange
04/28/13 - The Giants concluded their second day of draft activity with the selection of Texas A&M defensive end Damontre Moore, a productive and versatile defensive lineman who can play as a down lineman or as a pseudo-linebacker. While Moore didn't have impressive measurables at the scouting combine, Giants director of college scouting Marc Ross pointed out that there are some guys who post amazing numbers at the combine but who don't live up to the hype once they get on the field.
"This guy's production is off the charts when you compare it to people that got picked ahead of him at that position," said Ross. "Just look at the stats." In three seasons, Moore recorded 197 total tackles in 38 games, 116 solo tackles. A closer look though shows a kid who has impressive quickness in penetrating the backfield. - The Sports Xchange
04/28/13 - In three seasons, Moore accumulated 45.0 tackles for a loss, five behind school record-holder Von Miller (50). He also logged 26.5 sacks for minus 158 yards lost and managed 13 quarterback pressures. But Moore doesn't come without concerns. A junior eligible who will be just 20 years old by opening day, Moore's maturity level seems to be a bit of a concern for the Giants' brass. "A very, very good effort player on Saturday," said head coach Tom Coughlin. "But (he) had some issues during the week that we'll have to address in terms of preparation and practice mentality and that type of thing."
Moore's maturity along with his poor showing at the combine is likely part of the reason why despite his production, he slipped down to the third round. "Some people might have gotten scared off a little bit at the combine when he ran slow and didn't lift that well," Ross surmised. "There were a couple of things off the field that maybe people weren't comfortable with and he just needs to grow up. He's only 20. He needs to learn how to be a professional a little bit."
Ross believes that once Moore reports to the Giants' program, the team will have a structure in place that will help show him the Giants' way and will lead to his being able to contribute on Sundays. "We have a good structure in place," Ross said. "There is tons of upside with this guy. He's a football player who makes plays." - The Sports Xchange
04/25/13 - DANE BRUGLER'S FINAL 2013 DRAFT BOARD: 27. DE Damontre Moore, Texas A&M (6-5, 250, 3JR)...Moore probably could have used another season in College Station to develop his pass rush moves, but his athleticism and nonstop motor make him intriguing. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
04/25/13 - ROB RANG'S FINAL 2013 NFL DRAFT BIG BOARD: 30. *Damontre Moore, DE, Texas A&M: No player dropped further on my Big Board due to his performance (or lack thereof) during combine and Pro Day drills than Moore, who proved both slower (4.95) and weaker (12 reps) than many of the prospects measuring much smaller than him (6-4, 250) at the combine. Moore has proven to be a playmaker at both defensive end and outside linebacker, but the lack of preparation for the testing could be a sign that Moore's statistics were inflated by the Aggies' scheme and that he should have returned for his senior season. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
