South Carolina rookie tight end Jared Cook happened to be on the same in-bound flight to Nashville as fourth-round linebacker Gerald McRath of Southern Miss and fifth-round running back Javon Ringer of Michigan State.
Moore weighed in at 184 pounds, eight below where he was at the combine and was measured at 5-foot-9. He did not do all of the physical tests. He ran the shuttle and cone drills in addition to the 40-yard dash because he said they directly related to the position he plays. He bypassed the broad jump, vertical jump and bench press – events at which he excelled at the combine.
He did not significantly improve on his 40 time from the combine. Unofficially, his two attempts were 4.55 and 4.58 seconds. His official combine time was 4.56 seconds.
The Titans are definitely in need of depth at corner and may even be looking to replace the aging Nick Harper as a starter. They are also in need of a kick/punt returner because it appears that Chris Carr will be signing elsewhere.
D.J. Moore was a dynamic corner/special teams player/receiver in college. While he hurt himself with his 40 time (4.56) a little bit at the combine, he showed an excellent vertical jump (39.5 inches). The Titans still desperately need play makers, and D.J. Moore is a play maker.
