Two More Aggies Off the Board - Day 2
Running back Christine Michael was selected by the Seattle Seahawks with the final pick of the second round (No. 62 overall) and defensive end Damontre Moore was picked with the 19th selection of the third round (No. 81 overall) by the New York Giants. Michael and Moore join teammate Luke Joeckel, who was picked No. 2 overall by the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday.
Michael, a senior from Beaumont, Texas, finished his career as the No. 9 rusher in Texas A&M history with 2,791 yards despite having two seasons end early due to injuries. His 34 career rushing touchdowns rank in a tie for No. 5 in school history. Michael owns the longest run from scrimmage in school history - a 97-yarder against Baylor from his freshman year in 2009. His best single game rushing effort was 230 yards against Arkansas in 2011, which ranks as the No. 3 single game total in A&M history.
Moore, a junior from Rowlett, Texas, was a consensus All-American and a finalist for the Ted Hendricks Defensive End Award. In his first full season as a starter in 2012, Moore led the team in tackles (85), solo tackles (57), sacks (12.5), tackles for loss (21.0), QB pressures (9) and blocked kicks (2) as he earned All-SEC honors. For his career, Moore contributed 26.5 sacks, which ranks No. 7 in school history, and 45.0 tackles for loss. He also made 197 tackles in 38 games of action and forced an impressive eight fumbles.
The NFL Draft continues at 11 a.m. on Saturday with rounds 4-7.
