  • Dontay Moch, Ryan Coulson work out for Broncos

    Some more interesting info on visit allotment usage.

    The Denver Broncos have conducted a private workout for Nevada outside linebacker-defensive ends Dontay Moch and Ryan Coulton, according to a league source with knowledge of the situation.

    They also worked out for an undisclosed AFC team.

    Moch tore up the NFL scouting combine with a 4.4 in the 40-yard dash along with a 42-inch vertical leap and a 10-8 broad jump at 6-foot-1, 248 pounds.

    He was named Western Athletic Conference Player of the Year as a junior with six sacks and 19 1/2 tackles for losses and 22 tackles for losses and 8 1/2 sacks as a senior.

    He was a three-year starter who recorded 64 tackles last season.

    As a sophomore, he recorded 9 1/2 sacks and 15 tackles for losses.

    Moch projects to outside linebacker in the NFL, especially for 3-4 schemes.

    Meanwhile, Coulson is a 6-foot-3, 255-pound defensive captain who draws high marks for his toughness and work ethic. He excelled during positional drills and film study during the workout.

    Couslson doubles as a long snapper.

    He was unable to take part in all drills at his campus Pro Day workout due to a minor hamstring injury.

    Last season, he recorded 55 tackles.

    He was given an academic award and named third-team all-conference by one publication.
    More info from National Football Post on Moch - could be an interesting mid-round pick if we ended up with options. Doubt he'll be there in the 6th, and probably not worth using a 3rd on him.

    An undersized rush linebacker who looks better suited to make the move to outside backer in the NFL. Possesses natural bend in his stance, keeps his base down, head up and generates an above-average first step off the football. Plays hard and fast as a pass rusher, does a nice job keeping his pad level down into contact on his bull, can pump his legs through contact and does a nice job initially walking defenders into the backfield. Likes to work his outside club to the corner as well and has a good burst off of it as long as he can play linear. However, struggles to drop his base, maintain balance and really accelerate around the corner when trying to flatten out around the outside. Consistently allows himself to get upright, exposes too much of his frame and can easily be reached and pushed past the pocket. At times is willing to work his club counter back inside, but again allows himself to get upright, which takes away from his initial burst. Doesn't do a great job using his length or hands to shed blocks when engaged, gets upright which negates his power and can easily be handled throughout contact. Possesses good suddenness when asked to redirect and stunt inside. Is used all over as a pass rusher/blitzer and will stand up and rush from the inside. Closes well once he gains a step, but again, doesn't seem to possess the pass rush arsenal to routinely win vs. 1v1 blocks on the outside.

    Doesn't have the type of girth to consistently win vs. the run game as a down DE. Displays some power for his size and will take on blocks well, but doesn't disengage real quickly initially into contact and is often forced to wait until the play is past to work in pursuit. Exhibits a good motor and great closing speed from the backside, but I do have questions about his fluidity to hold up in the pass game in the NFL.

    He projected 2nd/3rd ish...

    Ive had him in my mock for a while now....Not terribly fond of him (moch) but he is 100% exactly what fox looks for in his LB...Also- Moch is a convert DE. Those two factors led me to believe we will take him with our 2nd 2nd. Bit of a reach but I think they want him and do not believe he will last til round 3 when we pick again.
    So far:
    FA- Melvin Gordon. Brandon Scherff
    1. Kenneth Murray LB; 2. Shenault WR; 2B. Biadazz Center, 3. OT

        Moch is definitely an interesting guy.
        He's an athletic freak, a great tackler, and decent in coverage. He could possibly be a SAM LB with his ability to shed blocks (as a former DE he does this pretty well). As far as covering guys go I think he's right where Von Miller is, both aren't very technically skilled but we aren't picking Moch with the #2 so I can deal with that problem. That being said he'd make a fantastic WILL one day as well, but I don't see him as a day one starter because I'm not ready to move DJ, and I want a starter at where he is going to be picked. He'd be a great WILL because he can use his athleticism to its best, not worry too much about coverage and blitz quite a lot.

        I'll be honest I like Moch for the Broncos more than Miller mostly because I like how Moch handles blocks, and most importantly I think as far as a 4-3 linebacker goes Moch gives us a better value for the spot.

          Moch is the most overhyped player, ever.

          He doesn't have anything except speed, and in the big leagues, speed doesn't get you anywhere when you're trying to get to the passer.

          Good thing he'll probably be a Raider.

            People seem to think Moch had no success in college which is wrong. He isn't the most polished player out there but he produced in college. That being said he had some like 20 TFLs in both of the past two seasons which is impressive even in the WAC.

            He isn't going to be the pass rusher that a lot of people hope but...I think when you let him play aggressive against the run and blitz once in a while.
            It may sound odd but he is a very good blitzer but not a great pass rusher.

            For the most part when it comes to Moch either you are picking him because you are super impressed by his athleticism or you just declare him to be another "combine warrior". He'll surprise some folks because he can play football pretty well.

              Yeah I'm seeing him slip into the 2nd round in more mocks, but I think there's a bigger chance of him being taken in the 4th than the 2nd. He's an athletic freak for sure but he really didn't dominate (and was against weaker competition). I think most teams won't project him as a starter within a few years, but more as a valuable backup so i'll throw out my prediction of more late 3/early 4 on him, draftniks like him more than the teams will. Be a good pick for us if we would end up in that range and he would be available, I think with our early 3rd I like to picture us getting a guy who I see more likely to start.

                  From what I understand he is definitely a guy that could easily shoot up draft boards. There are plenty of 3-4 teams looking for a great edge rusher, and his speed/burst will get him notice by teams. He might be a bit of a project but teams might think that he'll reach his considerably high upside.
                  I think he'll go by the end of the 3rd. I think he most likely goes in the mid-late 2nd, but I would not be surprised if he sneaks into first.

                    Good point - he might be a target for us in the third round.

                    NFP had him rated as the 96th best prospect, just behind Quan Sturdivant. Perhaps we'll even consider him in the second round.

                        There are several teams in the late part of the 1st that need a pass rusher such as the Patriots/Jets/Ravens/Packers. Any of them could take a gamble on him. While he might be a project he has considerable upside, and very good intangibles.

                        Probably won't happen but crazier things have happened...

                          I would love Moch in the 3rd. He probably wouldn't be able to contribute much at first, but we could use him on ST and on 3rd downs.

                            Moch and Miller are very alike in most aspects except draft value.

                            I like what miller brings to the table but I am afraid that he is a much better fit in a 3-4 as a OLB vs a SLB in a 4-3 I just can't bring myself to risk that with the #2 overall pick. That is why I like Moch more he is alot like Miller except he doesn't carry the same price tag. I think Moch could be around for our pick in the 3rd and I wouldn't mind taking a shot on him there since we do lack a good option at the SLB spot. Depending on how the draft plays out (LB's Foster & Carter) I might take a shot on him with the later of our 2nd round picks.

                              That would be awesome if we were able to pick up Dontay Mock with our second second. I really doubt he will make it past the end of the second round. Playoff teams are always looking for passrushers/disruptive players.
