COLLEGE STATION - Ray Childress, the former Texas A&M and Oilers great, once recalled that one of the best things about playing defensive end was its lack of sophistication or deliberation. The job description is direct: Get the quarterback. Childress was the last true defensive end A&M had selected in the first round of the NFL draft, in 1985. Damontre Moore was born seven years later, and the junior has blossomed into the Aggies' first end with first-round potential since Childress. Moore sounded much like his quarterback-hunting forefather in his praise of the position.
