2013 Mock Draft: The New York Jets Select………..

 This week the 2013 Fansided NFL Mock Drive has updated it’s Mock Draft order to reassemble the actual Draft order considering Week 17 of the NFL regular season is in the books.

We thank the guys over at Fansided for putting so much effort into the Mock Draft and getting a jump into the NFL Draft fray sooner than most…..

This week, they have the Jets who officially have the 9th overall pick in the draft, picking on the defensive side of the ball again and frankly it’s a move and player I love …..
 
 
The selection…….
 
Damontre Moore, DE, Texas A&M
 
 
Without a doubt this is a pick that I love and Moore was the Jets selection in the first mock draft and here is a review of my initial assessment of Moore in case you missed it;
 
Having watch the kid all season (SEC fan right here), it’s not hard to see how and why he’s the best defensive player on Texas A&M’s defense and one of the best defensive players in the country.  At 6’4 250, Moore has shown that he has the skills and attributes to be an elite pass rusher as his speed on the edges separates him from other pass-rushers in the country and is one of his best attributes.  Moore’s speed on the edges reminds me of a former pass rusher from Texas A&M from just a few seasons ago, one Von Miller.  Moore has consistently gotten to the QB this season and leads Texas A&M in sacks (12.5) and tackles (74).  Moore isn’t just a pass rusher as he has the instincts to be a very good all-around OLB as his other numbers include; 20 tackles for a loss, 2 passes broken up, a blocked kick and a forced fumble.
 
 
 
Moore would instantly upgrade a Jets pass rush that has severely underachieved in the Rex Ryan era. Paired with the 2 promising DTs Muhammad Wilkerson and Quinton Coples, adding Moore would undoubtedly add that missing pass rushing element to this Jets defense that they so desperately need!
 
You will have a chance to get a first  hand look at Moore this Friday Jan 4th, 2013 as Texas A&M plays Oklahoma in The Cotton Bowl.
