DT, South Carolina
Numbers: 6'1 (6011) / 303 pounds / 5.10 forty-speed
2006 stats: 2 tackles, 1-3 tackle for loss with Arizona
2005 stats: 8 tackles, 1 assist, 1-6 sacks, 1.5-3.5 tackles for loss, 1 forced fumble with Arizona
The player: How can I not like a guy with a name like that? Actually, Moore's a pretty decent player even though he doesn't really look like one. He's short, has stubby arms and almost no straight-line speed. But he does have a
non-stop motor, very good quickness, superior strength and some of the best in-the-trenches hand-use you'll see in the NFL. That skill-set makes him more of a 3-4
nose tackle than a 4-3 defensive tackle, but he's played both in the NFL. Moore hasn't played all that much since being drafted in the sixth round of the 2003 draft by the Bengals because of injuries and his physical limitations, but he has produced when given a chance. He suffers if he's exposed too much and works much better as part of a rotation.
How he fits: With the absence of Corey Simon (illness) and their troubles stopping the run, it's no wonder the Colts are auditioning defensive tackles. Moore certainly isn't the kind of guy to push you over the top, but his good attitude and strong effort certainly wouldn't hurt the team. If he is signed, expect Moore to be an occasionally used backup inside.
Reminds me of: Cleveland Pinkney, a former Colts undrafted free-agent find who has
eked out an okay NFL career. He's now with the Lions, his seventh team in six years.
