Sean’s Scout: DE Damontre Moore Will Make Immediate Impact

Help is on the way for the ' in week three, as will return from a two game served against the Giants and Broncos. Not only will Moore get back on the field against a Cardinals team that has struggled to protect QB – his flashes in the and fit into 's scheme should carry the expectation that he'll be a significant addition to the Cowboys' front for the rest of the season.

has been the “war daddy” the Cowboys need getting after the through two games, doing so 3.5 times with help from this team's interior push of and .

Understandably, Lawrence's most productive seasons with the Cowboys have come when he has support elsewhere along the defensive line, recording a career high eight when rushed opposite him at RDE in 2015.

Damontre Moore will have a chance to make an even bigger overall impact on this , as he rejoins this deep rotation of linemen with the versatility to rush off of either or, in certain packages, inside at the 3T position.

While Lawrence's game is more dependent on power and strength, Moore mixes in his speed and explosive first step to consistently capture the corner, flatten, and disrupt the quarterback. Teams are going to learn quickly that assigning just one blocker to both Moore and Lawrence will lead to plenty of collapsed pockets, but the Cowboys' ability to play both #90 and #58 on the move will allow Dallas to dictate the game up front.

Damontre Moore is certainly a patented Rod Marinelli guy – a relentless rusher that will bull rush his blocker into the quarterback if need be, with the active hands to disengage and drive with impressive pad level.

With second-year DE off to another slow start in 2017, Moore can ideally grab hold of the RDE position and make his presence felt as much more than just an EDGE that will hold the point of attack and fill run lanes.

After just two more games, the Cowboys will also add back promising DE , and his return from suspension will give Marinelli yet another (proven) rusher to use on the edge or at defensive – where Irving has shown the ability to absolutely dominate guards with his length and quickness.

To other fans around the NFL, the Cowboys' defense may very well still be a “band of orphans”. For those in that have been waiting for Dallas' defensive line play to improve though, the return of Damontre Moore is going to help this unit develop into one of the most versatile, athletic, and productive fronts the Cowboys have had in a very long time.
