#52 Dontay Moch, Outside Linebacker/Defensive End 

Height: 6‘2“ 

Weight: 255 lbs. 

Age: 24

College: Nevada 

Hometown: Phoenix, AZ

NFL Experience: 2 Years


Dontay Moch is a former 3rd-round pick from the 2011 draft that a few fans had high expectations for. During his time in college, he recorded 30 sacks and 62.5 tackles for losses. Since 2005, Moch’s tackles for losses was the 2nd most in the NCAA over that span, and his 30 sacks were the 9th-most.

Now, that includes every player that has played from 2005 to 2010. That’s a crazy feat to think about, that a player from Nevada was able to accomplish such a feat. While coming out of college, many scouts fell in love with his elite speed and pass-rushing ability.

He displayed great athleticism and showed versatility while playing defensive end and outside linebacker throughout his career in Nevada. He was a big reason why Nevada actually became a ranked team and won a bowl game. There’s a lot of reasons to like Dontay Moch, but there are some question marks with him as well.
