Like everyone else, Scott raved about Moore's work ethic, but said he's also more athletic than you'd think a man of his dimension would be.

"He's gritty, and he's a tough player, and he's hard-working, but he's also an athlete," Scott said. "He's extremely physical, and he can move for a man his size. I think he's a real diamond in the rough.

"When you turn on the film, it doesn't lie. He can get to the second level, he can move, he can pull, he can do everything you need to do."

With all those testimonials, it's important to remember he's still an undrafted rookie, on a team which drafted two and had and a solid group of veteran lineman.

Moore knows that. But he also has a spirit about him, a kind of joy in being here that was evident even when he met with reporters Friday.

"I'm ecstatic," Moore said. "It hasn't hit me yet. To be here in front of you guys brings a smile to my face. . . .

"Really at the Senior Bowl, they treated me like family throughout the whole week."

He may not be family yet, but he's definitely growing on them.
