Dontay Moch to Cincinnati Bengals: 2011 NFL Draft Scouting Report

Use your ← → (arrow) keys to browse more stories

Moch is a 6'1", 248-pound defensive end out of Nevada who—given his size—will likely make the transition to outside linebacker as a pro.

The Wolfpack’s first ever WAC Defensive Player of the Year as a junior in 2009, Moch followed it up with an All-WAC first-team performance as a senior. In his last year in Reno, he made 64 total tackles and led the team with 8.5 sacks and 22 tackles for loss.

Perhaps Moch’s most intriguing attribute, though, is his speed. He ran a ridiculous 4.40 40, but there’s obviously more to being a successful pro than straight-ahead pace.

“The question,” suggests Jeff Reynolds of The Sports Xchange, “is whether Moch can develop a secondary pass-rush move, prove he can hold his own against the run and handle coverage assignments as a linebacker. If not, he'll be a stiff-hipped athlete who will struggle much the same as former Jets first-round pick Vernon Gholston.”
