Moore Taken by Chicago in Fifth Round

MANHATTAN, Kan. - Kansas State's streak of consecutive years of at least one player being taken in the NFL draft has run to 17 after defensive back Joshua Moore was selected in the fifth round of the 2010 NFL Draft Saturday by the Chicago Bears.

The 17-year streak is currently the third-longest among Big 12 Conference schools, behind only Texas and Nebraska.

Moore, who declared for the draft following his junior season, was the 141st pick overall in the draft after being a two-time honorable mention All-Big 12 pick at defensive back in 2008 and 2009. The Pompano Beach, Fla., native finished second on the team in tackles last season with 64 and ranked sixth in the Big 12 and 28th nationally in passes defended with 13.

A Freshman All-America selection in 2006, Moore finished his three-year career at Kansas State, which included a redshirt season in 2007, with 175 total tackles in 37 games, 12.0 tackles for loss, six interceptions and 34 passes defended.
