COLLEGE STATION — While Arlington’s Luke Joeckel might have solidified his standing as the best player in the 2013 draft class, Damontre Moore offered only more questions during Texas A&M’s Pro Day.Joeckel, running back Christine Michael and receiver Ryan Swope stood on their numbers from the Scouting Combine last month.All three participated only in position drills Friday as 16 Aggies worked out for 45 scouts from all 32 teams.Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen, New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan, Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer, Philadelphia Eagles receivers coach Bob Bicknell, Raiders offensive line coach Tony Sparano and Raiders defensive line coach Terrell Williams were among those inside the McFerrin Athletic Center.The Kansas City Chiefs, who own the No. 1 draft pick, sent only area scout Willie Davis to watch Joeckel. But Joeckel has a private workout with the Chiefs in College Station on March 22. He also expects to schedule something with the Raiders, who spent time meeting with him Thursday and Friday.The Chiefs seem set on drafting an offensive tackle, either Joeckel or Central Michigan’s Eric Fisher, after releasing right tackle Eric Winston.“I had the interview with the Chiefs at the combine,” Joeckel said. “I think it went well, but who knows? It’s them evaluating me, not me evaluating them. I think I did well. I think my tape shows I’m a good player. But it’s them making all the decisions.”Moore once was projected by some as a top-five pick, too. But the defensive end’s stock seems to be falling after a “disappointing” combine and a nagging hamstring injury that hampered his workout Friday.“I feel like today I closed the book on Luke Joeckel,” Mike Mayock, an NFL Network draft analyst, said. “I know who he is. I like the kid. I kind of know what he is. …Damontre Moore? The book is still wide open. I think there are more questions than answers on him right now. I think all the teams are looking at him as a potential draft pick are going to have to do some homework.”Moore did the 225-pound bench press 19 times Friday, which was seven more than he did in Indianapolis when he was the worst among defensive ends. At 260, he also weighed 10 pounds heavier than he did at the combine.“He did better,” Zimmer said. “I was just watching him when he was lifting, and you can tell when a guy’s got some strength the way the weight comes up. I think he can do even more. But his right side, he was leaning a little bit. I looked it up, and he had a shoulder injury during the season. That’s something to take a look at. Everything I hear is he’s pretty good. You can tell he’s an athlete, but he’s hurt.”Fifteen receivers had more bench reps than Moore did at the combine. But Moore blames immaturity for his weak effort instead of the shoulder injury he had midway through the season.“I honestly was never a weight guy like that,” Moore said. “I’m really playing catch up against people who have been doing it, hitting it hard, and that was one of my things I was faced with being a little immature. Over time, I’ve gotten better.”Moore elected not to run the 40, resting on his 4.94 result from the combine. He did do the short-shuttle (4.31) and three-cone (7.05), aggravating his hamstring on the three-cone drill.
