He doesn't have ideal size and didn't make an impact for the Bears as a rookie, but D.J. Moore is emerging as a playmaker for Chicago's defense in his second season. The nickel back leads the team with four interceptions, one of which he returned for a touchdown. Moore, a fourth-round pick in 2009, wasn't exactly on firm footing with the Bears as a rookie, and some were wondering if he would go down as a wasted pick when he was active in only three games last season. He recently said he was angry at the Bears for not playing him much but also said his anger should have been focused more on himself for not working hard enough. Moore will still have a difficult time defending receivers who have a significant size advantage, and he was exposed in coverage against the Lions on a touchdown pass to WR Calvin Johnson in Week 13. He's filled a void for the Bears, though.
