Just for reference, here is a list of some players who lifted the bench press bar more times than Damontre: Jay Cutler, Brady Quinn, Jimmy Smith, Quinton Carter, Omar Bolden. QBs, CBs and safeties should not have better upper body strength than a pass rusher, they just shouldn't.
I agree we could use a pass rush specialist and I like Moore as a draft pick, but I just don't think he will ever be a quality every down player.
I don't want a quality every down player, I want a guy who is nails at putting the QB on the ground.
I don't know if that's Moore, and I completely trust Elway to decide, but I just don't care about the other aspects of his game, at least not with how this defense is currently constructed.
