With the Cleveland Browns wanting to go to a 3-4 defense, they are going to need help at the Line-Backer Position. They would benefit big-time if they could find a way to draft Damontre Moore the line-backer out of Texas A&M. The 6’4″ 250 lbs linebacker had a great career in college and he could carry that momentum into the NFL. Moore had 197 tackles, 26.5 sacks and 45 fo those tackles were for a loss in his NCAA career.
The Browns could use this guy to make plays and to bring pressure to the quarterback from the outside. This guy has it all, he is big, fast and he can use his size to knock down passes too. The problem is the Browns may not have a pick high enough to grab a guy like Moore. There is plenty of talk that the Browns want to deal Weeden, but what team is stupid enough to give away a high draft pick for a guy like Weeden? Especially after the season he had in the NFL. The Browns would be lucky to get a pick in the first round for the one they wasted on the 29-year-old quarterback.
The Browns have to do something to grab a guy like Moore, they should do what ever it take this off-season to get some defensive help. They were short-handed at line-backer last season and they had problems in their secondary too. They have to pay attention to the defense in this up coming draft if they really expect to transition the team to a 3-4 defense successfully. Getting a guy like Moore would be a great start.
