Notes:
Winner of the 2009 Buck Buchanan Award, presented by The Sports Network to the top defensive player at the Football Championship Subdivision level, winning the annual award by the largest margin ever...Moats was also named to All-America First Teams by several media outlets...The FCS national leader in tackles for loss with 23.5 over the course of 11 games for James Madison, Moats was also named the defensive player of the year in the Colonial Athletic Association and a First-Team All-CAA and All-Eastern College AthleticConference selection...Led the Dukes in total tackles as a senior with 90 and also paced the group with 11 sacks in as many games...As a junior in 2008, Moats led the team with his 15.5 TFLs and a career-best 11.5 sacks, earning Third-Team All-CAA recognition...A defensive end at the collegiate level, the size and speed of Moats makes him a better fit for linebacker in the pros...Might be some question about the competition against which he dominated, but he wouldn't be the first FCS standout to face such scrutiny.
