Damontre Moore was once a very promising prospect, earning All-American honors as a junior at Texas A&M before declaring early for the NFL draft. Expected to be a first-round pick, he saw his draft stock fall after poor workouts and was taken in the third round by the New York Giants in 2013.
The 6-foot-5, 250-pound defender played in four games with Seattle in 2016 before being released and signing with his hometown Dallas Cowboys this offseason.
Though he has never started a game in his four-year career, that could change this year.
According to former scout Bryan Broaddus, who now writes for the Cowboys’ official website, Moore has made a big impression during OTAs.
“If the season started this weekend, Damontre Moore would likely be your starter at right end. There were questions about his work ethic and attitude but he has come in and worked extremely hard to earn a spot on this roster.
“The majority of Moore’s work has come against Tyron Smith, which is never easy, but he’s been more than up to the challenge. He’s even accepted a role on the special teams and lined up as a standup linebacker/pass rusher.”
In his career to this point, Moore has recorded 77 tackles, 10 sacks, four passes batted and two forced fumbles.
