As expected, all-American defensive end Damontre Moore announced that he will forego his senior season and enter the NFL Draft. Moore has been projected by most draft experts to be a Top 10 overall selection.
All-American defensive end
, from Dallas, Texas, has decided to forego his senior season at Texas A&M and declare for the 2013 NFL draft.
Moore, a junior from Rowlett, Texas, earned first-team All-America honors from the Walter Camp Football Foundation, the American Football Coaches Association, ESPN.com, Max Emfinger CFB, YAHOO! Sports and the Football Writers Association of America.
Also a first-team All-Southeastern Conference selection and Ted Hendricks Award finalist, Moore is the Aggies' leader in tackles (80), quarterback sacks (12.5), tackles for loss (20.0), QB hurries (8) and blocked kicks (2). He is on pace to become just the third defensive lineman to lead the Aggies in tackles since 1970, and the first to do it since All-America defensive end Sam Adams in 1993.
"Today is a sad moment and a happy moment," Moore said. "It's always been a dream of mine to play in the NFL, but I've loved my time representing the 12th Man and with my teammates at Texas A&M. Wherever I go, I will always be an Aggie at heart."
