COLLEGE STATION - Texas A&M defensive end Damontre Moore put together an uneven pro day performance Friday, hampered by a hamstring injury that limited his ability to rebound from a subpar showing at the Scouting Combine last month.
Moore and the other prospects on-hand worked out for representatives from all 32 NFL teams, led by a contingent of five from the New York Jets, including head coach Rex Ryan.
Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen, a former Texas A&M Aggie himself, was also in attendance.
Moore began the morning with 19 reps on the 225-pound bench press, which was an improvement from only 12 in Indianapolis. However he decided not to run the 40-yard dash due to the hamstring, resting with his 4.94-second result from the combine. Moore did look better in the 3-cone (7.05) and short shuttle (4.31) drills on Friday.
Moore said he tweaked his hamstring at the combine and aggravated the injury while performing his 3-cone drill. Despite wincing in obvious pain, he also took part in the positional drills, working out with both the defensive linemen and linebackers.
"I fought through it and put my best foot forward," Moore said. "I got my bench press up and ran decent times."
Moore thought about not participating in the drills due to the hamstring injury, but wanted to perform for scouts.
"For him, his evaluation will be off video and how he played," said Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin. "He wouldn't be a projected first rounder if he didn't play like it."
Offensive tackle Luke Joeckel, the top-rated prospect by NFLDraftScout.com and a possible target for the Kansas City Chiefs with the No. 1 overall pick, and wide receiver Ryan Swope decided to rest on their combine results, only participating in the positional drills Friday.
Oakland Raiders offensive line coach Tony Sparano put Joeckel through a battery of blocking tests, while Swope caught passes from former Aggie quarterback Jerrod Johnson. Both performed well and kept their positive draft momentum pointing north.
