By Tim HeitmannSun, Mar 19, 2017 12:02:06The first thing to realize is that, like any sports team, the Sun Devils football program is in constant flux.
The Sun Devils have made a roster of more than 150 players and many of those players have yet to play in the NFL or the NBA.
There are players on the roster who have made the transition from college to the pros, but many of them are still playing in the state’s college football program.
The Sun Devils are currently in the process of building their 2019 recruiting class.
It’s been a busy offseason for the program and it appears that the roster will be filled with players who are either coming to the Sun Devil program for their first season in the Big East or who have played at least one year in the league.
Here are some of the players who were drafted in the first round by the Sun Daesons:Lamar Moore – LB – TexasA&M – 10th overallPick by the teamWith Moore on the 2018 roster, the team chose him in the third round of the NFL draft.
He went undrafted after the season and was later claimed on waivers by the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Moore has since become a solid contributor for the Jaguars, including two interceptions and a pass breakup against the Miami Dolphins in the Super Bowl.
He’s been selected in the fifth round of this year’s NFL draft by the Dallas Cowboys.
The Cowboys have also claimed him on waivers.
Moore has played in two games this season.
The second was a loss to the Washington Redskins and the third came against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Moore played a big role in the Sun Bowl victory over the Cincinnati Enquirer.
He had a sack, two tackles for loss, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery for the Sun Demon defense.
He finished with five tackles for the season.
Moore played well in the preseason against the Washington Huskies and the Arizona Cardinals and he also helped lead the SunDaesons to a win over the Houston Cougars.
Moore is a 6-foot-1, 210-pounder who is coming off a career year in 2018.
He was a consensus All-Big East selection in 2019.
He recorded 16 tackles for losses, six sacks, three pass breakups, two forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries and two interceptions in his first season at Texas A&M.
Moore is a leader on the team and he’s also a reliable pass rusher who can make plays against the run.
Moore was one of the Sun Dogs most productive defensive players in the 2019 season.
He recorded five sacks and three interceptions while also leading the team with eight quarterback hurries.
Moore’s sack total was the second-highest total on the Sun Cowboys defense and he finished with 10 tackles for lost, four sacks, two pass break ups, two quarterback hurried and two quarterback deflections.
Moore also had two quarterback knockdowns.
Moore leads the Sundaesons in tackles with 23 and is second in quarterback hurrying with 17.
Moore finished with 11 tackles for a loss, three sacks, four pass break-ups and two pass breakup assists.
Moore will be an interesting prospect for teams looking to take a chance on him as he’s a big-bodied, explosive, pass rusher.
The team may not be in the market for a starting left defensive end at the moment, but they’ll be able to grab one in the second round of next year’s draft if they decide to go that route.
Moore will be a very intriguing prospect.
The second-year safety has played at several different positions for the team.
He started at safety in his freshman season and played in five games over the next two seasons.
Moore recorded six tackles for losing, one interception and two passes broken up in 2018 as well.
Moore had two interceptions as a sophomore.
Moore started the 2018 season as the Sun Bulldogs starting safety, but he suffered a broken hand in the season opener against the New Orleans Saints.
Moore recovered that injury and played well the rest of the season, registering a career-high 17 tackles for Losses and three pass broken up.
Moore was a solid addition to the defense this season, and he should have a long career as a starter for the senior team.
