5. DJ Moore, Maryland
NFL comparison – Randall Cobb
Projected draft position – Round 2-3
Typically, when DJ Moore was on the field he was usually the best player. He played for an offense that had four different quarterbacks throwing him passes last year and he was still able to be named the Big 10 Receiver of the Year. He is particularly dangerous on screen and swing passes with his elusiveness, terrific run-after-catch ability and stocky build. With quick feet and good hand placement off the line of scrimmage he is hard to jam up and creates quick space between himself and the defender.
Moore is not your prototypical No. 1 receiver so look for him to do a lot of damage out of the slot. He has very good quickness and awareness to find holes within the levels of a defense. Screens and sweeps out of the backfield are parts of his game that make him extremely versatile and a very interesting prospect at the receiver position.
Moore is a raw talent with tremendous upside and flat out natural football intuition that many experts and analyst are extremely excited about seeing in 2018.
