Brandon Moore’s impressive road to the Pro Bowl Dan Leberfeld

Brandon Moore came to the Jets as an undrafted defensive end in 2002.
Now he’s going to the Pro Bowl as an offensive guard.
The National Football League has informed the New York Jets that Moore has been named to the 2012 Pro Bowl roster,
 
Moore (G/6-3/305/Illinois/Gary, IN) was selected as a second alternate to the Pro Bowl and this will be his first Pro Bowl appearance. He joins teammates G D’Brickashaw Ferguson, C Nick Mangold and CB Darrelle Revis on the Pro Bowl roster, marking the first time since 2009 the Jets have had four Pro Bowl selections (G Alan Faneca, Ferguson, Mangold, Revis). Moore’s selection also marks the first time the Jets have sent three offensive linemen to the Pro Bowl since Faneca, Ferguson and Mangold were named in 2009 and he is also the first Jets guard to go to the Pro Bowl since Faneca in 2009. Moore was a key contributor to an offense that finished first in the NFL in red zone efficiency in 2011, scoring touchdowns 65.5 percent of the time. He also helped pave the way for RB Shonn Greene to produce his first 1,000-yard season with 1,054 yards.
Moore has started 121 consecutive games, the longest current streak for an NFL guard. In addition, he is tied with G Dave Herman for sixth in Jets history for most games played by an offensive lineman with 128.
