Devin Moore is a top 20 running back in this year's Draft class. Flying well under the radar of many teams, and mock draft experts, Moore is out to prove he belongs at the next level. At 5-foot-9, 190-pounds, Moore is on par with other smaller backs who carry the "third-down back" or "specialist" label.
Moore impressed at Wyoming's Pro day. He turned in an impressive 4.35 and 4.37 40-yard time, better than every running back at the NFL Combine. He's the second fastest running back in the Draft according to Tom Marino (Link).
What surprised us when we spoke with Moore was his bench press. Moore pressed 225 pounds an amazing 28 times. TWENTY-EIGHT! To put that in perspective, you have to compare him to top Draft prospects like USC linebacker Clay Matthews (23), Wake Forest linebacker Aaron Curry (25), and USC linebacker Rey Maualuga (23) -- all considered near locks to be picked in the first round.
Compared to the running backs in the Draft, Moore blows away the competition. Virginia RB Cedric Peerman was the closes with 27 reps on the bench and a 4.41 40 time.
Listen to the replay as we ask Moore about his workout and his Draft experience so far.
