Skyy Moore offers possible star potential at wide receiver coming out of the MAC
For a guy who never played a snap at wide receiver in his life until college, Western Michigan’s Skyy Moore is about to be a no-doubt, top-100 pick at that position group in this draft. The former high school quarterback and defensive back converted to wide receiver once he arrived on campus at Kalamazoo. He was all-conference all three times during his three-year run with the Broncos.
Moore may be undersized at 5-foot-10 and 195 pounds, but he was incredibly productive in college. With Kaleb Eleby rifling him the pigskin throughout, Moore amassed 171 catches for 2,482 yards and 16 touchdowns during his college career. While Eleby will get drafted sometime in day three, Moore is a lock to go in day two. It remains to be seen if he is a second or third-rounder.
The good news for the Browns is they have three chances to end up with Moore. They could potentially reach on him at No. 44, hope he falls to them at No. 78 or pray he slips all the way to No. 99. Factor in him being a former high school quarterback and that will probably only help Moore pick up his relatively new position even faster. Watson could have a new favorite target.
Not to say Moore has major boom/bust potential, but his draft slot variance is worth monitoring.
