College career:

Moore played QB and CB at Shady Side Academy in Pittsburgh, winning Allegheny Conference Offensive and Defensive Player of the Year awards. He became the first player in conference history to pass and run for 1,000+ yards in back-to-back seasons, putting together this ridiculous highlight package.

Moore was just a 3-star prospect, though, and lightly recruited. He chose Western Michigan over only 3 other offers (Howard, Rice and Robert Morris).

Moore transitioned to WR at Western Michigan and made an immediate impact. He led the 2019 squad in receiving yards, tied for the team lead in catches and tied for 2nd in receiving scores. Seahawks 2021 2nd-rounder D’Wayne Eskridge was on that team but split his time between WR and CB in 4 games before a season-ending collarbone injury.

Moore’s market shares as a true freshman: 20.7% of the receptions, 25.6% of the receiving yards and 14.3% of the receiving TDs. He ranked 58th in Pro Football Focus receiving grade among 290 WRs with 50+ targets.

Moore played in 5 of 6 games in a COVID-shortened 2020 season, setting new personal bests with 5.0 catches, 77.6 yards and .6 TDs per game. Super senior Eskridge led the team in all major receiving categories, but Moore still improved his market shares across the board in his 5 games, accounting for 28.7% of the receptions, 29.4% of the receiving yards and 23.1% of the TDs.

Moore also improved his PFF receiving grade as a sophomore, finishing 42nd among 313 qualifiers. He ranked 39th with 2.61 yards per route run – although that was way behind Eskridge’s 4.94.

With Eskridge finally off to the NFL, Moore turned in a dominant 2021. He ranked 9th nationwide in catches, 14th in receiving yards and 21st in receiving TDs. That despite missing a game and a half with a leg injury and playing on a Western Michigan squad that finished just 49th in passing offense.

Moore registered huge market shares in his 12 outings: 43.6% of the receptions, 41.4% of the receiving yards and 45.5% of the receiving scores. His 91.8 PFF receiving grade ranked 3rd in the country behind only Ohio State’s Jaxon Smith-Njigba and USC’s Drake London. Moore’s 3.40 yards per route run was good for 8th among 251 WRs with 50+ targets.

He was an inside/outside threat last year, playing 69.5% of his snaps on the outside and 30.5% in the slot. Moore averaged a strong 3.11 yards per route from the outside and an even-better 3.93 from the inside.

Moore is an attacking route runner. He explodes off the snap, putting defenders on their heels. And he separates with sharp, violent cuts.




Moore doesn’t have blazing speed to separate downfield. But he does a nice job stacking defenders and is an excellent ball tracker with strong hands.



And when he doesn’t separate, Moore flashes the ability to win in tight coverage – high and low.



Moore is physical after the catch, getting upfield in a hurry and taking on contact. He led all WRs with 26 missed tackles forced in 2021, per Pro Football Focus.



Fantasy potential:

Level of competition is the biggest concern for Moore, who’s coming from the high-scoring, defense-challenged MAC.

But Moore stuffed the stat sheet, registering impressive raw numbers and market shares in all 3 college seasons. He tested as a 75th percentile athlete at the Combine. And the tape is impressive.

We’ll see what type of draft capital Moore gets. His size and lack of elite speed will probably prevent him from emerging as a lead receiver in the NFL. But his ability to separate on short and intermediate routes, coupled with his strong hands and after-catch skills, gives him a good chance to develop into a rock-solid NFL starter and fantasy contributor.
