Former Texas A&M Football OL Dan Moore Jr. was drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers
When Dan Moore Jr. came to College Station, he went under the radar as a recruit. He was only a 3-star player in high school, coming to the Aggies to prove his worth as a lineman. He would do just that.
He quickly went from an unknown prospect to one of the best offensive linemen in the country in just a few years. Moore Jr. wouldn’t win any national awards, but he was in the running for more than a handful of them in his last year in College Station.
The offensive line unit that he was a part of put up a handful of impressive numbers, including 0.7 sacks allowed per game and 5.5 yards per carry, making way for Isaiah Spiller to have a strong season.
He earned some exposure in the Senior Bowl, where he would protect Kellen Mond, helping the Aggies’ 3rd round pick earn the MVP award in that competition.
The Steelers likely saw his ability to stay active with his eyes and feet, maintain a disciplined play style, and always looking for the next block. Having gone in the fourth round, he’ll be a steal for a team that has consistently had a strong offensive line.
At 6-5, he can move like a smaller guy, with more athletic ability than most offensive linemen in this draft. Look for him to make an instant impact in Pittsburgh.
