Raiders are in desperate need of downfield speed
More than anything, Moore’s speed, and separation simply stand out. His ability to stretch the field was evident in college. His yards per reception in the last three seasons were noteworthy: 15.7, 15.5, and 13.6, respectively. Back in 2019, he was tenth in the Middle Atlantic Conference, and last year, he was top in his conference with ten touchdowns.
Pro Football Focus grades him at 91.8 overall, which happens to also be his receiving grade for the 2021 season. That’s noteworthy because it’s top among wide receiver prospects, eclipsing the likes of Drake London and Treylon Burks. His vertical was 34.5 inches, along with a broad jump of 125 inches.
If his physical abilities weren’t impressive enough, Moore’s hands received plenty of spotlight at the Combine: measuring 10 and a quarter inches.
Those hands certainly served him well in his collegiate career, having only dropped six passes in his run at Western Michigan.
As far as where he lined up in college, Moore accounted for 252 snaps in the slots and 567 outside wide. Considering how impressive he looked with sharp route-running and a 4.39 unofficial 40-time, the possibilities for the Raiders are endless.
