Dontay Moch Scouting Report
Dontay Moch
Dontay Moch - Nevada (HT: 6-1⅜ - WT: 248)
Combine 40: 4.44 - Position Rank: 7 of 32

Positives: Physical attributes are hard to ignore, is the fastest linebacker in this class... Has had solid production as a pass rusher in the last three years, 26.5 sacks in that span... Also finished fourth in the FBS with 22 TFL in 2010... Quality character guy, works hard and leads by example on and off the field... Is a very athletic player with huge upside if he can hone his overall linebacking skills, is fast and physical and possesses above-average pass-rushing skills... Is much quicker than a lot of NFL offensive linemen, and will be a valuable asset in twists and stunts at either linebacker or defensive end... Has a strong upper-body and uses it to disengage from blocks at the line with relative ease... Is a consistent wrap-up tackler and rarely misses tackles when he takes good angles... Durability has not been an issue, seems to be in good physical shape with no history of major injuries.

Negatives: Can give up on plays when pushed away from the ball, does not have a very consistent motor in every game... Has size and speed to be interchangeable in a few systems, but will most likely only be utilized as a pass rusher and special teamer initially... Needs to develop more pass-rushing moves, generally relies on speed to get to the quarterback, but can get easily pushed away from the pocket when going full speed... Uses upper-body to tackle as opposed to driving forward with legs, tackling technique will not be as effective at the next level against NFL quarterbacks... Does not have much experience in coverage, but has the speed to keep up with backs and TEs on simple routes, but will probably be a pass-rushing specialist... Overall instincts are below-average at the linebacker position.
