TEXAS A&M’S MOORE IS MORE THAN PREPARED FOR LIFE IN THE NFL

Posted by Kevin Bowen on March 4, 2013 – 2:23 pm

Of all the players that will be chosen in this April’s NFL Draft perhaps no player is more prepared for the talent waiting at the next level than Texas A&M’s Damontre Moore.

In 2010, Moore arrived in College Station and played sparingly as a true freshman playing behind All-American Von Miller.

Moore observed Miller transform himself into the No. 2 pick in 2011 and has earned back-to-back Pro Bowl honors in his first two seasons in the NFL.

“I feel that we have that big brother-little brother relationship,” Moore said of Miller. “I am the little brother and I try looking up to him and do everything he does and try to follow his footsteps and try to be as good as him, if not better.

“He kept me humble my freshman year. Whenever I had some success he told me, “Good job, but forget about it, we have to go on to other things. You have to have your goals but just go out there and perform to the best of your ability and everything will take care of itself.”

As Moore blossomed into a starter at defensive end, he was busy going up against some of the nation’s best offensive linemen each day in practice.

Luke Joeckel is a consensus top draft pick this season and fellow offensive tackle Jake Matthews is projected to be a top pick in next year’s draft.

“I felt like we were going against the best offensive line in football every day in practice,” Moore said. “It made my life a little bit easier when I went up against somebody it wasn’t as big of a challenge and they made me a great player, pushing me every day in practice.”

That combination has helped Moore become an All-American and leaves College Station with 45 tackles for loss in just three seasons.

Moore was apart of a stellar first season in the SEC for Texas A&M with the Aggies ending the year with a convincing Cotton Bowl victory over Oklahoma.

After playing in both 3-4 and 4-3 defensive systems in college, Moore brings some versatility to the next level and where he lines up in the NFL is of no worry to him.

“It really doesn’t matter to me at this point. I am just happy to be in this situation,” Moore said.

“It has always been a childhood dream since I was playing in Little League football to be in this league so wherever I get the best opportunity and can touch the field the quickest. I am just really blessed and honored to be in this position.”
