2013 NFL Mock Draft: Damontre Moore to the Buccaneers

Damontre Moore tallied 12.5 sacks in his final season with the Aggies.

The consensus top need for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the 2013 offseason is for the team to find viable options in a secondary that finished as the NFL's worst at defending the pass. However, in the event that Alabama cornerback Dee Milliner is off the board when the Buccaneers are on the clock for pick No. 13, not many believe the second-best cornerback would be worth the selection.

In the first mock draft of the season from CBS Sports' Will Brinson, the Buccaneers are instead projected to upgrade a pass rush that finished with the third-fewest sacks in the NFL by taking Texas A&M pass rusher Damontre Moore.

13. Tampa Bay Buccaneers -- Damontre Moore, DE, Texas A&M -- Moore sliding works out for the Buccaneers, who dip back into the defensive end pool again this year thanks to the possible departure of Michael Bennett via free agency and the airline issues that Da'Quan Bowers recently ran into.

Moore is the second-ranked player on Dan Kadar's big board of 2013 NFL Draft prospects for SB Nation, after he racked up 12.5 sacks during his junior season in 2012.

In the latest mock draft from Kadar, he also elected to improve the pass rush of the Buccaneers, although, he elected to do so with a player along the interior, projecting the team to select Florida defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd. The Detroit Lions instead selected Moore with the fifth overall pick.
