Jon Gruden on rookie LB Geno Hayes
“He has athletic ability,” Gruden said. “He’s what’s advertised. He’s going to be a good contact player, I think, when we start putting pads on. He’s instinctive, he has good functional speed and he appears natural. He appears comfortable in this defense, and we’re excited about that.”
Jon Gruden on rookie DT Dre’ Moore
“He’s an explosive big man,” Gruden said. “I think he’ll be the first to tell you his stamina is going to be an issue. He’s got to get in much better condition, and that’s why we have that factory over there, that industrial, weight room machine factory over there. We’ll get him in there. He is strong, very powerful, but I think the stamina needs to be addressed and it’ll be addressed. Hopefully he starts it himself here as he leaves the building.”
Dre’ Moore definetely seems like a player who will get time in the Dline rotation this upcoming season. Unless we have given up on Quincy Black, which would be hard for me to imagine at this point in young career, it is going to be tough for Geno to see any time on the field besides special teams duty.
