Saints' Next DE/DT

Texas A&M defensive end Damontre Moore will forego his senior season to enter the NFL draft.
Moore led the Aggies in tackles (80), sacks (12 1/2) and tackles for losses (20) this season. He was a first-team All-Southeastern Conference pick and was a finalist for the Ted Hendricks Award.
Moore will finish his Texas A&M career Friday when the Aggies face Oklahoma in the Cotton Bowl.

Just checked that. About 6' 4, 250. I don't know if he will fall that far to the Saints, but it would definitely be worth a look if they don't trade back.

A little on the light side... but could play like Von Miller did and is now.

Damontre Moore*|*Texas A&M,*DE*:*2014 NFL Draft Scout Player Profile

Here are the rankings for DE's.

He's not in the top ten ... so he could fall easily, I guess.

Re: Saints' Next DE/DT

Those rankings were last updated on the 27th and Moore just announced his intentions this weekend. Let's see where he's listed when they update those. My bet would be Top 3 easily.

Re: Saints' Next DE/DT

Damontre Moore is going to be a top 5 pick. The kid from Alabama is only a run stuffer... he offers virtually nothing in terms of a pass rush. I think we have to go Sheldon Richardson from Missouri.

see here is where i say be careful of media hype

Barrett Jones, C/G/T, Alabama took him completely out of the game this year.

I hate one year wonders with the term "upside" tattooed to there rears. a lot more evaluation needs to be done with these type of players. Especially in round 1. Plenty of them in round 3 and on. so i pray the saints do some serious home work on the kid if they take him here.

Were with players like Jones he proved in the SEC:

2010 Soph year he can play guard
2011 Jr year proved he can play LT
2012 Sr year he can play OC

Go back and look at the drafts and see some of the players he went against. not a shabby group

of those 3 positions i have to say OC is the position were he had the most challenge.

Now i am not say to draft Jones here. what i am saying is use his play as a measuring stick for any SEC DT we consider

Trade back and take him probably. but i think he will not last to the bottom of the first

Re: Saints' Next DE/DT

Good analysis hagan... I hadn't looked at it that way. That's why I love this board: intelligent Saints fans. Who do you want us to take in the first round? I mean, obviously other than Barret Jones. Who looks good on defense?
