Moats, a third-year player, has had a great camp and he may have himself into the lead in a battle for a starting outside linebacker spot with Kirk Morrison, BuffaloBills.com reports. “At the strong side position, Arthur Moats and Kirk Morrison are in a battle,” said Bills defensive coordinator Dave Wannstedt. “To be quite honest with you Arthur gets the nudge a little bit. They are going to split time in the game, but Arthur might have outperformed him a little bit at this point in training camp. So we have real competition right there and how it unfolds; the games will determine that.”

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Entering his fourth year in the league, Moats is a solid reserve linebacker and special teams ace. He is returning from an ankle injury suffered late last season.

2012

Moats is a decent young player best known for being the guy that laid the hit that ended Brett Favre's consecutive games streak. He may have been moved around too much early in his career in the team's previous 3-4 defense, but he'll settle in as an outside linebacker in the new 4-3 run by Dave Wannstedt. Unfortunately, he's not slated to start, so he'll serve as a valuable depth guy and special teams player until injuries strike.

2011

Best known for being the guy who ended Brett Favre's consecutive games streak with a hit the previous week, Moats was forced into plenty of action as a rookie. However, much of that was due to injuries, and with him likely making a move to the inside this season, he'll be mostly a backup as long as other stay healthy. This does look like a fine sixth-round choice by the Bills in 2010, however.

2010

Bills head coach Chan Gailey’s initial plan is to have Moats, a rookie sixth-round draft pick, move to inside linebacker in Buffalo’s 3-4 defensive scheme. Moats was a dominant defensive end at small school James Madison, but he's not big enough to play DE in the pros and probably not tall enough to play OLB. So the team will move him inside, where he has very little chance of starting as a rookie. He was so dominant in college, however, that he's a good project for the team, and he might be put on the field in special packages to rush the passer. No IDP usefulness yet, but keep an eye on him.
