COLLEGE PARK, Md. – University of Maryland wide receiver D.J. Moore will participate in the 2018 NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis. The combine will take place on Feb. 27 through March 5 at Lucas Oil Stadium with network coverage from The NFL Network and NFL.com.
Moore had a remarkable junior campaign for the Terrapins accounting for 80 receptions, 1,033 yards receiving and he hauled in eight touchdowns leading him to First Team All-Big Ten honors and won the Richter-Howard Big Ten Receiver of the Year award.
Moore had his best performance last year against Northwestern University when he secured 12 receptions for 210 yards and two touchdowns on Oct. 14. During his three-year stint at Maryland, Moore had 147 receptions, 2,027 yards, 17 receiving touchdowns and a rushing touchdown as well.
“He’s so consistent,” University of Maryland Head Coach D.J. Durkin said of Moore. “He works, nothing affects him, doesn’t say much, doesn’t get up and down. Whether he’s caught 10 passes in a game or caught one, he’s the same guy. Whether up or down, whatever is going on, he’s the same guy,” Durkin said.
“That speaks to the type of player, type of person D.J. is. He’s accountable. You know what you’re going to get from him every day,” Maryland’s Head Coach said.
On-field workouts for Moore will be on Saturday, March 3 and the 2018 NFL Draft is set for April 26-28 in Arlington, Texas where Moore hopes to garner some attention from his performance in front of NFL scouts at the combine.
The DC Touchdown Club will honor Moore as the Washington Metro College Player of the Year. He is the first wide receiver and the third Maryland player to win the prestigious honor. Moore is slated to receive his award during the sixth annual 3M Awards Dinner, which will be held on Thursday, April 12, in Bethesda, Md.
“The D.C. area annually produces some of the top players in the nation and this year is no different,” DC Touchdown Club Executive Director Steve Beck said. “We are thrilled to honor D.J. Moore as he begins the next step of his football journey.”
