Position: Defensive End
Position Rank: No. 66
Damontre Moore is the most improved player on the list who actually received a ranking coming out of high school. He rose from 66th at his position, not overall, to be an almost-guaranteed top-five pick in the 2013 draft.
Moore is a classic example of what can happen to you if you listen to the people around you that want to help. Even a 3-star recruit can become a first-round pick.
Moore anchored a defensive line that didn't just produce results, it eventually went on to dominate a first-year SEC schedule in 2012.
If the Aggies had caught a couple of lucky breaks, they could have been national champions instead of Alabama.
Moore is certainly not going to risk his entire career by returning for his senior season to see if that can happen, though. Matt Barkley, Montee Ball and many others before him have made it clear that a player should jump if it makes sense.
Being a potential top-five pick is certainly a great reason to pack up and leave college. He can always afford to come back on his own and get his degree if something happens to him in the NFL.
Here are his recruiting and NFL draft profiles.
