Jacksonville Jaguars waiver wire target No. 3 – OL David Moore

The Jaguars could use some offensive line help. On roster cutdown day, they waived KC McDermott, Austen Pleasants, Tre’Vour Wallace-Simms, and Badara Traore. None of them had a realistic shot to make the roster, so the team’s brass will most likely have to look for reinforcements on the waiver wire.

The Miami Dolphins released center Matt Skura but he’s a vested veteran, so he doesn’t have to pass through to waivers and can sign with any team he pleases at any time. If the Jags are looking for potential developmental projects, rookie offensive lineman David Moore could be an option. The Grambling State product joined the Carolina Panthers after not getting his name called in this year’s draft.

Moore then joined the New York Jets but was waived on roster cutdown day. Teams such as the Las Vegas Raiders and the Chicago Bears showed interest in him before the Gang Green ultimately claimed him. He should once again be a coveted waiver target. Dane Brugler of The Athletic had a fourth-round grade on the mammoth offensive lineman, so he could eventually turn into a solid backup or even a starting-caliber guard.

Moore has upside and the Jaguars are at the top of the waiver order, so they can call dibs on him if they want to. Their offensive line may or may not play up to their potential after allowing 44 sacks last year but they should look at outside the building for potential reinforcements.
