New York Giants: Damontre Moore Primed For a Huge 2015


Damontre Moore has been a player that the New York Giants and fans have been excited about since he was drafted by the G-Men in the third round of the 2013 NFL Draft. Nicknamed “Damonster” for his raw power and ability to get to opposing quarterbacks, many couldn’t wait to see him harness his raw abilities and develop into the elite pass rusher the Giants have built their success on as well as being the perfect asset to play across from Jason Pierre-Paul.

Moore has progressed quickly in his two seasons in the league and is poised for a breakout year in 2015. Moore managed to get 5.5 sacks in limited playing time last year, sharing time with Robert Ayers and Mathias Kiwanuka. Now with Kiwanuka gone and Ayers coming off a major injury, it is the perfect opportunity for Moore to make an impact early and secure a permanent starting spot on the Giants defensive line.

Moore is playing more disciplined football and is progressing well at recognizing plays and making big stops against the run. That plus his pass rushing talents make him an ideal player in new defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo’s defense where a lot of emphasis is placed on rushing the passer.

Having a young, fierce pass rushing combo of two huge, strong players like JPP and Moore could blossom into a dominant pass rushing combo. Couple that with the skills of Ayers, and you have the potential for one of the best defensive end units in the entire NFL.

Moore will definitely be worth keeping an eye on as training camp opens in a few months and will be a star in the league for years to come. The 22 year old pass rusher out of Texas A&M will thrive on defense and will lead to huge numbers for 2015 and beyond. He could very well be the catalyst for the resurgence of the dominant Giants defensive line that was the cornerstone of the team for it’s last two Super Bowl runs.
