“He’s long, he’s just short,” Panthers offensive line coach Pat Meyer said of Moore in January.
Since Grambling’s 2020 season was canceled due to COVID-19, Moore has had a long layoff. Or, as Panthers head coach Matt Rhule said at Senior Bowl, “He hasn’t played since Thanksgiving; not the last one, the one before.”
Panthers staff tried Moore at center during the training week leading up to the Senior Bowl, a new experience for him after playing goalie in college.
It’ll be interesting to see if they line him up there when he gets to Charlotte. If they put him next to sixth-round guard Deonte Brown in practice, they could have a 700-pound humanity mass in the middle of the line.
He’s also the second David Moore on the list, having signed the former Seattle wide receiver of the same name in free agency. With DJ Moore, the three Moores will have fun determining their nameplates this season.
The Panthers also agreed to terms with the following undrafted rookies:
– Washington State punter Oscar Draguicevich
– Northwest linebacker Paddy Fisher (who was also on their Senior Bowl team)
– Fullback Mason Stokke from Wisconsin
– Alabama-Birmingham running back Spencer Brown
