J’Mon Moore, and his 40 time, were the stars of the show at Mizzou pro day

Here are today’s Mizzou Links.

Mizzou’s Pro Day came and went with the typical fanfare (well, the typical “Mizzou doesn’t have a top-round pick this year” fanfare, anyway).

While Marcell Frazier was fine, and former safety Anthony Sherrils was as fast as we would have expected, J’Mon Moore’s speed was probably the biggest headliner of the day.

Moore was the only Mizzou player invited to this year’s Senior Bowl and the NFL scouting combine. At the combine in Indianapolis Moore was clocked at 4.6 seconds in the 40-yard dash, which ranked 32nd among the 38 receivers timed at the combine. Even for a bigger receiver — Moore measured 6-3 and weighed 205 pounds Thursday — that’s on the slow side for an NFL wideout. Moore was faster Thursday, timed at 4.48 seconds.

Moore said he received text messages “for days” after flubbing the 40 in Indianapolis.

“People were like, ‘Bro, what were you doing?’” Moore said, laughing.

What was his problem in Indy?

“Really, I just lined up at the wrong line at the 40. The combine is something different, let me tell you,” he said of his slow time at the combine.

I ... guess that would do it. Regardless, he was evidently the star of the show.
