2011 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Dontay Moch, OLB, Nevada

The Nevada offense gets most of the credit for the team's recent success, but it will likely be a defender who hears his name called first on draft day. Dontay Moch did not see much action as a freshman, but soon enough he would be shattering Western Athletic Conference records. As a sophomore the 6-1 Chandler, Arizona product moved from linebacker to defensive end and tallied 11.5 sacks, setting the school's single season record. He also tallied 15.0 tackles-for-loss. For his efforts, Moch was named to the All-WAC second-team.

By 2009 he was the conference's Defensive Player of the Year and totaled 61 tackles, including a conference high 20.0 for a loss. He also recorded 6.0 sacks and forced two fumbles. Through eight games in the 2010 campaign, Moch has already hit the 16 tackle-for-loss mark and should shatter his own Nevada record for tackles-for-loss in a season. Those numbers have also made him the conference's all-time leader in tackles-for-loss and he is a mere 2.5 sacks away from setting the conference record in that department.

At 6-1 and 245 pounds, Moch projects better as a pass rushing outside linebacker than a defensive end in the NFL. Ideally, he would be an outside linebacker in a 3-4 scheme, but Moch could lose some weight and become a little quicker to fit a certain scheme. In any event, Moch is a superb athlete who has proven time and again that he can get into the backfield and cause a ton of problems for the opposing offense. Even if he finds it difficult to fit into a specific team's defense, he should not fall past the third round.

Prediction: 1st Round

Moch has freakish speed, running an unofficial 4.2 40. He's not the cookie-cutter size for a speed rushing OLB in a 3-4, but with some work I can see him becoming a potential difference maker in the the NFL.

All 3-4 teams will look at him in the second round possibly the late first to Pitt or NE. Puure potential who can run a 4.3 forty.
