David Moore – Carolina Panthers OL

David Moore is an undrafted free agent out of Grambling State. He was a projected Day 3 pick but thankfully fell to Carolina once the selection process came to a conclusion.

Moore is a versatile player that can play both the guard and center position. Something the Panthers clearly love.

He recently played for Panthers head coach Matt Rhule before the draft at the Reese’s Senior Bowl. Moore was a standout and attracted plaudits with his strong production during team drills

Moore did so well in Mobile, he was voted the top offensive lineman from the American Team and the practice player of the week award.

The lineman can battle out a lot of players for backup positions on the offensive line. With his versatility and excelling at multiple positions, coaches will pay attention.

He also trained with Hall of Famer offensive lineman Bruce Mathews in Houston before the draft. So, he was getting a lot of knowledge on the game and how things work in the NFL.

Moore was a huge signing from the UDFA market. His play will be on full display at training camp and eyes will be on him.
