Add another top prospect to the list on confirmed players for the 2013 NFL Draft. Texas A&M lineman Damontre Moore confirmed in a video yesterday that he will forgo his final season of eligibility at Texas A&M to enter this upcoming April’s NFL Draft.
“I just talked it over with my family and the coaching staff, and we just rated out the pros and cons, and the pros weighed out the cons,” Moore said in the video. “It was a very tough decision, it came down to the last minute. It was split because I love Aggieland and because I love the time I spent here.”
As of right now, Moore’s draft stock is valued at the middle of the first round and some see him as a late first/early second round pick as well. He’s ranked significantly high on the draft boards of both Todd McShay and Mel Kiper Jr., and with the confirmation of his draft stauts and the upcoming combine in w few months, his stock will surely rise.
Kiper currently has Moore ranked 4th on his board while McShay views Moore as the second best prospect in the 2013 Draft class.
Had a sack against Bama, making that six straight games with one and nine of 10 games overall. Consistent performer. Versatile, Moore has adjusted well to playing as a defensive end in a 4-3 scheme. Excels as a pass-rusher, able to dip hips, turn the corner and use quickness and length to bother tackles.
-Mel Kiper on Damontre Moore
He is a versatile prospect who can play outside linebacker in a 3-4, right or left end in a 4-3 and even move inside to rush the passer from the interior. Moore is quick and fluid as a pass-rusher, is able to hold up against the run and plays hard.

We still have a few months left to go before the draft stocks really take leaps or dives, but the hype around Moore is already insanely high.
