This year, 4 guys were given the solid nod at OLB in the first two rounds (by CBS Sports), 4 are graded between 2nd/3rd, and 2 are graded as solid third. (That's a total of 10 guys.)
4 more guys are graded higher than Moore (but not necessarily better.)

At ILB, there are two top guys (Minter and Teo), and 3 more guys graded higher than Moore.

A comp pick in the third, or an early pick in the fourth can certainly do the trick for Moore (based on the ranking at this time); however, I haven't look at the other guys yet to see whether Moore may leap-frog them in the days ahead.
I think Ogletree is actually better than Teo and at the moment Minter. Give Minter some more playing time and I think he will be a steal at ILB.
