DEEP FRIED DRAFT
DFD COOKBOOK RECIPE
158 receptions, 2477 yards, 21 touchdowns
15 kick returns, 328 yards
Today we look at a prospect that is starting to rise up some draft boards. J’Mon Moore was a three-star recruit from Elkins HS in Missouri City, Texas. He redshirted his first year and played sparingly the next year. Moore led the team in receptions and yards as a redshirt sophomore. He closed his Tigers career with back-to-back seasons of 60-plus receptions and 1000-plus receiving yards.
2016: West Virginia
2017: Auburn, Kentucky, UCONN, Tennessee, Senior Bowl
The feeling I get when I watch J’Mon Moore is that I am not watching a special talent. Moore does some nice things but he doesn’t have a single elite trait. I think his value to an NFL team will be as a 3rd or 4th WR with special teams value. I could see him being drafted in the 5th or 6th round area.
The best quality I see from Moore is his run blocking ability. He is one of the better blocking receivers I have studied so far. Moore does a good job of tracking the ball in the air. He has quick feet in the open field. He backed this up by running a 6.56 in the three-cone drill at the Combine. Moore is also a solid route runner.
Moore drops too many easy targets. In the five games I watched, I never witnessed him make a contested catch. Moore lacks deep speed. He only ran a 4.60 forty at the Combine. It also bothers me that he never lined up anywhere except on the left side of the Missouri offense.
