I have seen him jumping up the board too. If he goes up, someone will have to go down. Top 5 seems to me as a "potential" if a 4-3 team goes after him. I'm hoping he weighs-in in the high 230s - low 240's at the comine....Coming in great shape to help his times. Projecting him more in the OLB conversation would be step one. I believe we are around 12 teams in 2012 for 3-4. 5 look to be definite playoff teams. More of them making the playoffs would only help the cause. Of course A & M plays in a Bowl and Moore goes beast mode...He won't be part of the conversation for long.

More than likely, his best shot would be at weakside DE in a 4-3 year one. Most of his snaps appear to be strongside right now. I also see him at weakside in a 3-4 and he may be able to get on the field early as a 3-4 OLB. We will see as the process begins. I'm hoping he starts getting the "weakside" tag associated with his name after combine weigh ins...That would help. I'm projecting him to ROLB.
He is playing with his hand in the dirt this year but he has played standing up. I have been trying to get as many A & M games in as I can (any game with a pass rusher really). The reason why I'm paying attention to him is because he played 3-4 OLB & they still have him dropping into coverage even with his hand on the ground. He is still showing that aspect of standing up even though the moved him to DE. Your comparison of Ware is a perfect one. Sounds like it could be the same Story with Moore being inserted anywhere the name Ware appears. I don't think Moore will weigh-in at 260+ but Ware had that "tweener" tag. Many thought Jones lost his mind taking a 2nd rounder at 11 but I guess there was a time he knew who his guy was and nailed it. Give me at least until the combine to keep my hopes up! ;)
