Q & A with Georgia WR Michael Moore
March 19th, 2010 By Matt Elder
Following an impressive workout at UGA's Pro Day, DraftNasty's correspondent Matt Elder talks with Michael Moore about his day and football future.
Q: How important was today's Pro Day to you?
A: It was extremely important. I just use it as motivation. You know last year, there were 40 guys that didn't go to the combine and got drafted. You know that's motivation for me, just knowing that there are going to be 30 or 40 wide receivers drafted this year, and I don't feel as though there are 30 or 40 wide receivers that are better than me. So I just try and come out here with the mindset of having put in all this hard work, and now it's time to show out. I tried to show the scouts what my toolbox consists of, and I think I did a pretty good job. There is a pretty good buzz going around, and hopefully I can just keep generating buzz and do whatever interviews and personal workouts I get. They are probably going to watch some more film, now that I have shown them what I can do.
Q: Have you talked to any teams so far?
A: I talked to the Rams. The Patriots were interested, and I know the Chiefs have spoken to my agent. There are a lot of teams out here and my agent said that once everything is finished, they are all going to start trying to talk to you. They are trying to watch all the workouts and see what is going on with everyone. They aren't letting the agents on the field right now, so hopefully later on we will see who all is interested.
Q: Where do you see yourself in the NFL? Do you think you're a one or two guy? Do you see yourself in the slot?
A: Everybody that is going to be a rookie this year is going to start in the slot, and I see that as an advantage for me. Talking with Donte Stallworth, who actually helped me train in Miami, said that coming in you're going to be a three, four, or maybe even a five guy. Your first position is going to be a slot. Playing there is going to help you only because you're comfortable with it. A guy coming from the outside to the inside is a lot harder adjustment than a guy going from the inside to the outside. During practice I always work on the outside, but in games, I always played on the inside just because it felt more natural. Hopefully that can boost my value, and teams can say that this guy can come in and contribute right away.
