Much like Cornelius Washington, Sio Moore will be rising up draft boards following the NFL Combine. Moore has been rising up boards since the East-West Shrine game and he could make a serious bid as a potential replacement for Jacksonville Jaguars OLB Daryl Smith, if he walks in free agency. With the Jags needing linebacker help, Moore could be an immediate second round help.
Moore impressed during his time at UConn, but really impressed at the combine. If teams hadn’t noticed during his time at the Shrine Game, they will now. Moore was among the top performers in bench press (29 reps), 40 yard dash (4.65), vertical (38 inches), and broad jump (127 inches).
As the Jags build for the future in GM Dave Caldwell’s first season, Moore could be a player that contributes immediately or in the long haul. We’ll have to see if Caldwell judges outside linebacker to be a big enough need to spend a second round pick on it in the 2013 NFL Draft.
