NFL teams held their rookie minicamps last weekend, and undrafted free agent David Moore out of Grambling was one of players Carolina Panthers singled out following Friday’s workout by head coach Matt Rhule.
“(Panthers offensive tackle) Trent Scott (who also played at Grambling), he’s one of us, he’s got the right mindset and work ethic, he’s an awesome guy,” Rhule said during a post practice press conference. “He said to keep an eye out for David Moore from Grambling; ‘I put my stamp on him, he can play’ … And then we got down there(tp the Senior Bowl), and he was pretty much everyone on our team, one of their favorite guys. He had a great attitude. He’s got a great personality and great demeanor, and everyone who’s around him just kind of gravitates toward him.”
Moore might be a little shorter and wider than normal for an NFL lineman. But he’s dropped 23 pounds since the Senior Bowl, and thanks in part to his 83-inch wingspan, Moore had Panthers offensive line coach Pat Meyer telling media members, ‘Hey he can do it.’ after his first practice session.
