Shark Bites

Per Nate Taylor of the Athletic, the Chiefs believe rookie WR Skyy Moore “can excel as a secondary slot receiver behind Smith-Schuster and be a possible deep threat on the perimeter in one-on-one matchups.” Moore’s undersized — both in height and wingspan. But he brings blazing speed and quicks and sure hands. Marquez Valdes-Scantling profiles as the field-stretcher with JuJu Smith-Schuster working the short to intermediate routes. Moore’s usage figures to be diverse in an offense that lost 260 targets with the offseason departures of Tyreek Hill, Byron Pringle and Demarcus Robinson. The rookie is battling a minor hamstring tweak at the moment, but there's no cause for concern.

Recent Shark Bites

Chiefs HC Andy Reid gave his assessment of rookie WR Skyy Moore at minicamp. “He looks strong,” Reid said recently. “You see that — the way he’s built physically. That transfers. You see those 10 [inch] hands that he has. He catches everything… and he’s a good route runner, a smart kid. He seemed to pick it [the offense] up well.” Moore will battle JuJu Smith-Schuster, Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Mecole Hardman for targets in training camp. Currently, the rookie projects as a fringe top-50 fantasy option.

The Chiefs added Western Michigan WR Skyy Moore with the 54th overall pick of the 2022 NFL Draft. Moore played QB and CB in high school but transitioned to WR as a freshman at Western Michigan. He made an immediate impact, leading that 2019 squad with 802 receiving yards. Moore played in just 5 games in the COVID-shortened 2020 campaign, averaging 5.0 catches, 77.6 yards and .6 TDs per. Those marks ranked 2nd behind 5th-year senior D’Wayne Eskridge. With Eskridge finally off to the NFL, Moore turned in a big 2021, ranking 9th nationwide in catches (95), 14th in receiving yards (1,292) and 21st in receiving TDs (10). He finished 3rd in Pro Football Focus receiving grade behind only Ohio State’s Jaxon Smith-Njigba and USC’s Drake London. Moore is just 5’10 but is well-built at 195 pounds. That helped him lead all WRs with 26 missed tackles forced last year, per PFF. Moore is also an explosive route runner and has 4.4 speed to win downfield. He was effective from both outside the numbers and the slot at Western Michigan and should bring position versatility to the NFL. The only real knock on Moore is that he faced lower-end competition in the MAC. This is obviously a strong landing spot alongside HC Andy Reid and QB Patrick Mahomes.
