Devin Moore - RB

Many of you may remember that I took Devin Moore in round 4 of the Rumblings' Pre-Free Agency Author's Mock.  Some of you loved it, others hated it. 

Well, Mr. Moore apparantly wasn't invited to the NFL Scouting Combine, so he took matters into his own hands (per PFT):

Wyoming running back Devin Moore wasn’t invited to the Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.

So he held his own.

On Thursday, Moore performed in T-shirt and shorts for scouts who were in town for the much bigger party for which someone who isn’t good enough at scouting to get a scouting job with an NFL team deemed Moore to be unworthy to attend.

According to Gil Brandt of NFL.com and Sirius NFL Radio, representatives from 14 teams attended the workout.

Moore ran the 40-yard dash in 4.43 and 4.41 seconds.  Per Brandt, the 4.41 would have been the fifth-fastest time at running back at last year’s Combine.

(That said, we haven’t seen or heard whether the times will be adjusted based on any possible differences between the surface on which Moore ran and the FieldTurf at Lucal Oil Stadium in Indy.)

Moore also jumped 35 inches vertically, 10 feet broadly, pressed 225 pounds 27 times, ran the short-shuttle in 4.22 and 4.29 seconds, and performed the three-cone drill in 7.14 seconds.

Since Moore resides in Indianapolis, he was permitted to arrange a workout there.  Otherwise, he would have had to wait until the Wyoming Pro Day

Some thought he was going to run in the 4.3's, so his 40 times may be a little disappointing to them, but I think this is a win for Buffalo.  I've been an advocate for Buffalo adding a 3rd "scat-back" to their running back stable, and ideally I would like to see them add the guy late in the NFL Draft.  Even the 4th round is a little high for my liking.  Had Moore posted in the 4.3's, you could forget about him slipping that far.  But since he posted average to above-average 40 numbers, he may just be around when it's worth it for Buffalo to take a chance on him. 

Just another great fan opinion shared on the pages of BuffaloRumblings.com.
