I think he is very underrated. People seem to give most of the hype to his teammate Sean Porter but Moore is the better prospect. First 1 I did of him

Dont remember how i posted vids here its been so long

When did A&M get interesting?

This guy has nice size, moves well, has thrown up 14 sacks in two years, and generally looks like a cool prospect.i like him better than Mr. Estonia SMU DE.

Mr. Nicks speaks the truth.

He doesn't tackle well, hasn't developed pass-rush moves, but his potential is scary.

A&M has been Linebacker U of the Southwest for years.
Johnny Holland/John Roper/Aaron Wallace/William Thomas/Quentin Coryatt/Reggie Brown/Warrick Holdman/Dat Nguyen are the most notable.

Von Miller might be the best of them all.

I don't know if any college program has had more LBs drafted in the last 25 years than A&M off the top of my head.

Keep your eye on Stephen Jenkins, #45, DaMontre is probably going to get himself suspended, again, at some point.

I feel like his 5 & 10 yard splits are off the charts for someone his size. I was watching a little bit of his tape recently and noticed how his acceleration was so high.

Ex: Often times on hb & qb draws he would engage his blocker, notice the ball carrier and just shoot off his man, thus creating his high number of TFL's.

He has a great motor but hasn't developed many pass rush moves. I obviously think thats teachable and not much of a deal breaker.

Love this guy! Added him to the first round in my new mock.

Moore has done a great job of filling Von Miller's shoes.

18.0 Sacks and 34.5 TFL in his last 19 games!

A&M belongs in the SEC. We accept them as one of our own.

He's the top pass rusher and a top 10 pick in most mocks now. I hope the Browns take him.

BTW, he just chased down a WR who had a 10 yard lead on him to save a TD

I like him a lot but he's still behind Mingo, Montgomery and Dion Jordan IMO and maybe a few others as well. It's a great DE class. I'm kind of intrigued by Ezikiel Ansak of BYU who was once a 200 meter sprinter and is getting some comparisons to Jason Pierre-Paul of the Giants.

I just read that he wants to come back for another year. I don't know if that is smart because right now it's all there for him and he could be a top 10 pick but if he went back would have to battle Clowney and the other guys for next year.

Ansah looks a bit bigger and stronger than JPP did at this stage of his career. Considering he hasn't played much football he's pretty good with his hands. Does play too high when he gets tired, but that can be said of quite a few prospects. If you can find the tape on YouTube of him blowing up a fake punt against Boise it's worth it - dumped the blocker right on his backside and made the tackle short of the first down.

Unique skill set and I think may test out better at the Combine than JPP, who I seem to recall was fairly average outside of wing span.

How many on your list became good pro players? Please. PSU has a more impressive list in the NFL Today than they have had over 25 years; Bowman, Lee, Wake, Hali, Connor and Posluszny. Not to mention Conlan, Arrington, Brandon Short. Linebacker U. USC and Ohio St have put more lb's in the NFL than A&M.

I like him a lot more than the LSU guys because he actually produces. Seems those two (Mingo especially) have all the ability of being 10+ sack guys but they don't get to the QB enough.

I agree completely about the LSU guys. It is one thing to smoosh a cupcake, and something else to make a play in a big game. The very first 5 min I watched an A&M game this year, Moore got a sack. I think it was verses Mississippi State. You see a guy for 5min, and he makes a play. Not Bad. He'll be gone before my Colts can get him. I don't actually see a whole lot of play makers at LB this year. I'd be wary of Mante Te'o in the first. I think he is going to slip a little. Damontre Moore is definately my favorite LB this year. Speaking of the Penn State linebackers, I think this year they did it again. Michael Mauti would be a steal in the 3rd. He definately stands out.

I have found it to be very cyclical. About 6 years ago I did a study on whether or not statements like "Penn St=Linebacker U" actually held water. At that time the only linebacker from Penn St. who was starting in the NFL was Antonio Pierce, and the Giants cut him the next year.

And the school that produced the most starting offensive linemen? I was shocked to discover that it was...wait for it...Purdue?

What about Miami? Ray Lewis? Jon Beason? Jon Vilma? Colin McCarthy? DJ Williams? Ted Hendricks?

I think LB U shouldn't be about who has the most but instead the quality of those players. None of the above mentioned PSU guys come close to Ray Ray or even Ted Hendricks.
