2. Damontre Moore
Is 2015 the year Damontre Moore breaks out? It very well might be. His 5.5 sacks in 2014 were promising, especially considering he didn’t even eclipse the 400 snap mark. If he had 600-650 snaps last year, we’re talking about a guy with 10-12 sacks. And an offseason weight gain of … pounds probably won’t hurt him either.
And consider this: Osi Umenyiora and Justin Tuck–who was injured year two–didn’t reach double digit sacks in a single season until their third years in the league, and Michael Strahan didn’t do it until his fifth year. Could year number three be the big one for Damontre? The Giants sure hope so–and numbers suggest it might be.
